I had lunch at the restaurant. The negative part was the set menu. Apparently during lunch they only serve set menus to tourist groups. The good part was that the colleague who took me there ordered on the side "sfiha", a very thin crust "Armenian pizza" with minced lamb meat. This was the highlight of the meal. The set menu...

I walked from the Jaffa Gate through the Armenian Quarter. I stopped in and had a drink and a bite on my walking tour. The staff are friendly and hospitable. The layout in the terrace is very nice. I had some tea and some boreks and tahini and a few other things. I will be back! Thanks Bulghourji!

From time to time i go there with groups, I and my groups are always very please with their service. The place is very suitable for large groups. Not so sure if they offer their service for individual, you would have to contact them for that.

The best this about this place is the wifi. Everything else is poor including the food, hospitality and the service. The salads are soggy and at least 2 days old. The waiter took our salads back and came back confidently saying the he inspected then and nothing was wrong with them. We asked him to return them as we can't... More

We ate here before a guided tour of Old Jerusalem, so I wasn't expecting much because I thought it might be touristy. However, I was pleasantly surprised to have a good meal of vegetables, humus, rice, beef, and salad. The place is clean and convenient to the Old City

Our group of 5 had a fabulous lunch here. Atmospheric for certain, and a separate garden type of setting for larger groups. I liked that I could sit in a more restaurant setting, and it was quieter, but so authentic. Great starters, plenty of food with entree's. Wine was great but so was the lemonade, a real treat!
