I went with a friend who knows Armenian food well, and we both thought the food was lovely. The service was unfriendly and they rushed us to finish (although we were only there for 45 minutes). They kept coming to our table to see if we had finished, and when we sat down, they told us that the table we... More

I ate here on my last night in Jerusalem. The service was good, if not a little pushy to get your order, but he food was very average. I had a nice bottle of wine but this is expensive too, not just in this restaurant, wine is expensive in Israel.

If you're into Middle Eastern knick-knacks, this place is full of them! The food was good - not a huge range, but should cater for everyone's taste. Service was patchy - it was probably busier than other evenings as it was Shabbat, so restaurants in the Jewish Quarter were closed.

I was not very hungry when I visited and was intending to share with a friend but was informed when we wanted to order that there is a minimum spend of 60 shekels per person. I ended up getting the mixed platter (forgot the exact name of this main course), which had a rather big portion. Definitely recommend it as... More

We went here for lunch. Our young waiter was the nephew of the owner who was tending the small bar. Both were very pleasant and friendly. This is a beautiful place! You step down into it from the street like going into a cave. Take the steps down and you will be in awe of the beautiful decor. If you... More

After a week of middle eastern food, our tour guide told us we were going to have Authentic Armenian food. It was delicious, but tasted like pretty much everything we had already had. They served mostly family style for our tour group. Delicious hummus and byoreks (like cheese blintzes). The pita bread was warm and toasty too. Great salads and... More

Very nice restaurant. I would say it almost authentic Armenian - I would expect little bit more Armenian food there. But anyway, the food was very good, service was friendly. It has kind of home authmosphere. On a way from Old city, just before Jaffa gate - jump there. You will like it.

The authentic decor and the atmosphere give a feeling of an old tavern. The food is well made and tasty, we had lamb "shashlik" and beef kebab with couple of beers. The service was warm and friendly. and our orders came pretty fast. The place offers authentic Armenian kitchen for a reasonable price. This is an excellent place to stop... More
