Zanazan Restaurant

Restaurant Zanazan at the Avan Marak Tsapatagh hotel with an open terrace and a stunning view of Lake Sevan is a local gem and almost the only restaurant of this class on this shore of Sevan.

The high vaulted ceilings and the ascetic interior design of the restaurant create the atmosphere of a rural manor. The indoor hall of the restaurant can accommodate up to 130 guests, serves corporate events and banquets, and also has an outdoor terrace with a magnificent view of the water surface of Lake Sevan, convenient for cocktail parties.

The inner courtyard of the restaurant under the shade of apple trees has several gazebos. In the warm season, your order could be served outdoors.

The restaurant serves traditional Armenian cuisine with a modern twist, using local fresh farm produce. Being part of the TUFENKIAN heritage hotels and restaurants, the restaurant, however, has in its menu dishes that are served exclusively in Sevan, in particular, fresh white fish caught in Lake Sevan and cooked in one of the following ways: fried, boiled, baked on charcoal or in oven.

The Zanazan restaurant serves breakfast for guests of the Avan Marak Tsapatagh hotel from 08:00 to 10:00, and is also open for everyone to have a hearty breakfast.

Zanazan Restaurant / Reviews

  • Nestled with in a small village along the banks of Lake Sevan, the location of this hotel is idyllic. It allows us to feel a part of this landscape and its people and not isolated the way tourists often feel.

    The décor is fantastic, the cleanliness and service outstanding. The food is out of this world!

    Our hats off to you!!

  • It has been a delightful experience to dine, so exquisitely on the shores of Lake Sevan. The food is some of the best I have tasted on the world, the white wine is superb and the service has been charming attentive and professional.

  • On two successive evenings, we have enjoyed superb Armenian Cuisine on a magnificent setting overlooking Lake Sevan, which changes its aspect every few minutes. We could hardly have enjoyed it more, and look forward to future visits. Food and drink are keys to a culture, and we believe that we have enjoyed the best of Armenian hospitality precisely here.
