Came here for lunch with a group of friends. It was quite crowded when we came. This Amernian restaurant serves awesome meat dishes of which we ordered the chicken and lamb. Bread was freshly prepared which just brings the food to the next level. We came here after visiting the Tower of David.

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.

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.
