Haykanoush Restaurant

Haykanoush Restaurant is situated on historic Sharambeyan Street and is part of the Tufenkian Old Dilijan Complex. The Restaurant has two floors and can accommodate up to 80 guests. The Restaurant's dining room looks out on Dilijan's lush, natural beauty.

Our designers created a replica of late 19th early 20th century Dilijan dining room. The high ceiling is decorated with wooden beams and chandeliers and the wooden floors are covered with famous hand-woven Tufenkian Carpets. The design of the restaurant creates a warm and inviting atmosphere, perfect for intimate dining or memorable gatherings.

Guests will enjoy many traditional dishes like mushroom and apricot soup or pomegranate stew, made from Armenia's two signature fruits. Traditional Armenian pilafs are served alongside dishes that showcase a variety of Armenian cheeses. Visitors should also be sure to stop by the restaurant’s bakery for exceptional breads and pastries. One of the many must try delights from the bakery is Boureg, a flakey pastry filed with spinach or spiced meats.

  • We found this gem after desperately looking for food in this rural mountain village. The staff is very friendly and speaks English, menus are also in English. We had great Armenian food in a cozy setting!


  • Everything is just perfect. Huge menu, nice place. For sure I will go there once again. For me it is the best restaurant in Dilijan town.
