It's a nice experience to have chicken and beef kebabs. Would have loved to have more of the meat but we were unsure if it's only limited because we came with a group or as a group. Service is a little slow. It seems like there's only 3 people for the whole restaurant and 1 cook/chef because the orders were... More

This restaurant is one of the most beautiful in Jerusalem right down the street from the Tower of David in the Armenian Quarter. The place is very spacious with gorgeous vaulted stone walls. I had a large lunch of salads,humus, kubbeh(amazing meat pastries) and entree consisting of lamb chops, chicken and veges. It was even better than the last time... More

Excellent location and well-decorated but the food and service must have seen better days. It is purely focused on making a quick buck on pilgrims and other tourists making their way through the old city beauties. The set menu is the traditional tourist trap with stale hummus, oily meat and desserts that have lost their flavour. It is in Israel... More

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

Thank Beth K
