Amazing meal after a very rigorous morning of hiking down the streets of Old Jerusalem. The building was very historic with vaulted stone ceilings. Too cold for eating in the courtyard but later in the year would be very nice. Salad course was excellent. We thought that that would be all that would be served only to know that the... More

the food was tossed on the table family style but the food was average at best. I was not impressed. I am sure there are other places that were better.

Interesting trying out some Armenian food here in Jerusalem. When we were seated, the service staff brought out various types of dishes comprising mainly vegetable dishes. Thinking that this was the way they ate, we tucked into the food heartily only to realise that the main dish had not been served. Food was good and service was prompt.

Great ambience, authentic Armenian décor, and great middle eastern foods. Well worth the visit, on the main road from the Jaffa Gate through the Armenian Quarter. Be sure to order Middle Eastern salads, hummus and pita bread (staple foods in the Middle East).

Located near the Jaffa gate, just up the road from the Tower of David on the right hand side. We ate in the courtyard area in the back, in the company of plants and mosaic tiled pictures. The food was excellent and fresh, for the most part, and the staff was so helpful.

My wife, son, daughter-in-law and I had dinner here on our first night in Jerusalem. It is easy to locate near the Jaffa Gate and the food was excellent. I had the chicken, it was great. Our server Ali was especially nice. Jack

I take teams of people here. I have for years. Love the food the friendly service and the location in the Armenian Quarter is very close to the Joffa gate. The Cabob's are the best... Chicken or lamb.

We had a special event there, and the staff was very helpful and accommodating in making the arrangements for our group. We chose the restaurant because of its location in the Old City and the authentic atmosphere. The food was very good and plentiful, and the Armenian cuisine was interesting. The hummus was particularly good. The service was also good.
