Hmmm.... I read a lot of reviews to choose restaurants in Jerusalem. I am very surprised that this one has such high ratings. The location is good. Right near the Jaffa gate. The most beautiful part of the outdoor restaurant - that is, not covered by a tarp - is only available for drinks and not for dinner. So, although we were right next to the wall of the Old City, we had the feeling of being in a tent. The food was average at best. I ordered the Armenian "pizza". I have had it several times in Armenian restaurants, and this was definitely the least interesting I have ever had. It was bland and rather tasteless. For the mains we all went for meat dishes. All fine, but uninteresting. The restaurant did give us free baklava at the end with our coffee. The service was good, but there is much better food to be had in Israel.

Most of the cold and warm appetizers were amazing, the main course mediocre and the dessert a joke: slice of watermelon. Not that I didn't like it but it was not worth the price.
