Enter the old city of Jerusalem via the Jaffa Gate, and you're almost there! As you walk along Armenian Patriarchate Road, watch on the left for the low arch over its doorway, duck in, and head downstairs into another world. Because we arrived unfashionably early...More

We were here for dinner. The setting and decor are stunning. The food is delicious, I recommend the appetizer sampler platter as a main dish. And, the service is attentive and friendly. We truly enjoyed ourselves here. Definitely worth a stop!

I've been to the restaurant a few times, with friends and family. Average restaurant, with average service. The place is with an antique design, but full of details. The food is tasty but a bit dry. One have other better options if need.

Very disappointed after reading some reviews. Service was good and friendly but I expected some unique tastes with Armenian food. Salad had no taste, like eating just raw veggies. My wife did not finish her chicken and my lamb had no taste.
