Description: The Avan Dzoraget Restaurant is interwoven with a bar and lounge. Guests can choose to dine in the opulent interior or on a large themed terrace overlooking the Debed River. Just like two other Tufenkian restaurants, Avan Dzoraget stands out for its secluded and quiet location, stylish traditional design, cuisine and ambiance.

For the price you pay, you may expect a better meal. Lamb was almost burned to the point that it was difficult to identify meat and bonds. Rainbow trout, a river trout supposedly from Debed river, had a price of 20 euro, it was good but the price was simply abusive. Definitely, too expensive for both its cooking and quality.

On the other hand, it is a nice restaurant with beautiful windows over the river and patio, inside this magnificent chateau made of stone. Said that, I wouldn't go again because unfortunately we cannot eat the stones nor the balconies.

We stopped here to have some rest and dine. The lobby was somehow quiet unless a noisy group came in with screaming children and even more noisy dads.

The menu was only in Russian and English. No Armenian menu in Armenia - that's a nonsense!

The waiter - a young guy with slow and relaxed manners - mixed up everything we ordered: instead of grilled vegetables he brought grilled chicken, the ashtray arrived only in the end of the dinner despite of several offers. He wasn't able to explain what certain menu items are composed of...

And around the tables outside a couple of hens and a lazy cat were wandering ...
if it was a rural restaurant, it could have been taken as a local color, but when a place pretends to offer European standards at quite high (for Armenian population, at least) prices, that's becoming strange...

However, dishes were very tasty in fact and plates/glasses rather clean and tidy- that was merely the only benefit we got..
