Good Arabic and international food

Great service, good food and excellent Arabic food. The top floor restaurant is better as a bar with a great view of the city. The downstairs Restaurants are better for food, coffee and dessert. Oh, and the restaurants are good for Free Wifi. The breakfast and evening buffets are good value.

Definitely worth a visit for the views alone but we really enjoyed the food too. Located convenient close to the old city, near the New Gate, you get the option of eating off the main menu or tucking into a cheese platter. We did the latter and enjoyed it with a cracking bottle of Palestinian rose (didn't think I'd ever... More

Just located near the New Gate, the Notre Dame Hotel Cafe and Restaurant is open not just to the hotel guests but also to church goers and visitors in general. The best feature is the buffet which has a wide selection of food for all sorts of palates including vegetarians. For those not wanting a meal, there is an expansive... More

You go for the view, you pay for it ! They do not serve water unless you pay $ 6 for a bottle ! Criminal extra charge on an already EXPENSIVE restraurant

The restaurant on the top of the Guest House is incredible and attracts many locals as well as guests. The views of the Old City are stupendous. You can either sit outside on the terrace, where they have heaters for chilly evenings, or inside and still enjoy the view. They offer and extensive array of cheeses and put together very... More

Perfect place to enjoy Jerusalem's views, specially at night. But stay with drinks only. We ordered cheese fondue ($40) and Caesar salad ($17) with Vina Esmeralda Torres ($38). The food was insanely overpriced and extremely tasteless. Does not seem to bother the staff: "Nobody complained before...". Too bad, since the place itself is a winner. 5+ for location, 1 for...

If you want to experience Jerusalem in an incredible way, enjoy dinner or a glass of wine from the rooftop of the Notre Dame Hotel. This gorgeous historic hotel offers a dining experience that is unmatched. Staff is attentive, ambiance is amazing!

Notre Dame restaurant is situated on the roof of the hotel with the same name. To make a long story short, i would say that there are only two positive components in this strange business: panoramic view and design. The prices are very high and (sic!) in $US. When you try to talk with the staff in Hebrew, they switch... More
