Great atmosphere!

We stopped for lunch after our tour of the Western Wall Tunnels. What a beautiful and interesting place. Lovely to sit and soak in the atmosphere while waiting for lunch. We had a basic lunch of falafel (15 NIS) and tabbouleh (8 NIS) and some hummus (8 NIS). Plus a drink, lunch for 2 was about... read more

I'm asian and therefore naturally I love spicey food, I've tried a lot of the place in Al Quds and there all tasteless as they have no spice but this place proved otherwise, very tasty... More

This is a great little restaurant in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem. Its decor and building work is fabulous and evidently has historical value. The food here is pretty good and the staff are friendly and helpful. The staff were particularly attentive to our young child and gave him some finger food to nibble on before our... More

I ordered lamb kabots and the smell and taste were so strong I couldn't eat it. prices are... More

Only stopped in for a short coffee break. Disappointed that they only serve one type of coffee. Clean, quick, friendly, good prices. Did not try the food.

This is one of the nicer restaurants in the Old City and is located near the Western Wall. I usually have my coffee there. The restaurant is located in a genuine Old City building and the lower floor was a cistern. The staff is nice and the food is really OK.

My family and I went in for lunch after some touring of the Old City, and we weren't impressed with the food. The personal service was fine, and at first I thought that the waiter was fine, but then I noticed two of the waiters of the restaurant go outside and start to poke and torment a homeless man sleeping...

A little expensive. No surprises. The usual falafel, hummus, salads and the likes. A hike downstairs if no room upstairs. OK for a quick lunch but no more than that. Not too far from the Western Wall.
