Reviewed 6 November 2018

We were touring the Old City with a tour group of 25 people, and arrived at this lovely restaurant just before noon before it got crowded. We sat in the shaded courtyard which was quite comfortable in late October. The dishes started arriving immediately, and we were overwhelmed and delighted with the quality and variety. 6-8 bowls and plates of mezes arrived, along with excellent pita bread. After we had wiped out most of that food, the main courses arrived. We couldn't finish it all, but everyone went away satisfied! I can't speak to the price/value since it was included in our tour. The entrance sits right on a busy street, so you definitely have to be careful when stepping out the door that you don't get run over !

This was the best lunch so far. The meze and bread were good and the food was family service. ie. brought to the table. The main course was a mix of grilled meat with rice. The atmosphere was very good and this added to the pleasure.

A specialty Armenian restaurant in the old city of Jerusalem. A small entrance but with a huge dining area at the back- they cater to a lot of tour groups for lunch and dinner. Very busy - but the service was slick and attentive.
And. most importantly, the food was good; much of it fresh from the kitchen and there was more available on asking.
Pleasant surroundings and we would recommend it

The Bulghourji is an Armenian restaurant in the Old city of Jerusalem not far from the Zion gate. So, it placed very attractive for visitors to Jerusalem. Inside the entrance there is a nice dining room, but since we were a large group we were placed in a large open space with tent-like roof. It was probably an old courtyard. This was definitively not cosy in any way, but it was good for our conversation since it was not noisy. However, the food was excellent. We had the standard meze to begin with, but this was very varied and a generous number of tasty plates. We also got some very nice warm dish to the meze as small meat pancakes. After that we was served lamb meatballs with tomatoes and a fried dough pieces with a nice interior. The dessert was not that much, just some kind of simple cake. In total this was still the best meal we had on our one-week journey in this part of the world.
