We ate here the last night we were in Jerusalem. The staff was excellent and we were treated like kings. The wine from the owner's vineyard was awesome. I would buy it here in the states if I could. What a beautiful stone building. The food was wonderful and many different items were served. What a great way to end... More

Stopped in on Christmas Eve and intended to have a drink and appetizer. Appetizer, Armenian pizza-like offering, was so tasty we stayed for dinner. Grape leaves appetizer delicious; outstanding choice. We had mixed grill, tasty variety of meats. Decent house red wine. Beer selection could be better. Portion size good. Reasonable price for Jerusalem. Apparently this place caters to bus... More

Great appetizers are all you need when they are so plentiful and delicious. We were part of a large group and found the service very good, considering our numbers. The food was tasty and perfect for a lunch. I'd recommend this to others who want to experience the historic flavour of this lovely historic building in the old city.

We arrived at this restaurant for a lunch with a tour group of about 40. From the outside this looks like a small restaurant but it is in fact a large great looking historic building in the Armenian quarter. The interior will take you back to the middle ages and if I had more time I would have returned several... More

This is a place designed for tourist group dining, in and out meals. Batch cooking for 2-300 people means dry overcooked food in family style platters. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this restaurant as long as you understand what clientele it is meant to serve. d

I enjoyed the setting and decor inside. The food was great and staff were friendly. It is very close to everything which was convenient for us while visiting. I will remember this place the next time I visit Jerusalem.

The best Armenian food. Had a wonderful dinner. Fresh, tasty and delicious. The salads were very fresh. The appetizers were excellent and the main course was lamb chop beef with a white sauce with mushrooms and vegetable really tasty.
