No sooner did we arrive in Jerusalem after a long flight from NYC and the longest ride on Nesher, did we find ourselves walking over to Te'enim for some wonderful vegetarian comfort food. The food was well prepared and just what the doctor ordered for our very first evening in Jerusalem. And the view of the walls of the Old... More

If you are looking for a restaurant with charm, that has a view of the Old City and that offers terrific food, check out Te'anim, one of Jerusalem's longest-established vegetarian restaurants. Located in the Confederation House in the Yemin Moshe neighborhood, Te'enim is a treat for the eyes and the belly. Try the Maharaja Majadarra (lentils & wheat served with... More

You have to look for this restaurant, because it is difficult to get to it by chance. It has a very nice view on Jerusalem wall, although only three tables are close to the windows. The menu is vegetarian. We choose their breakfast, and my wife and I shared its various options. We found the food quite good and interesting,... More

I had the grilled tofu which was full of fresh flavours. The mushroom and seaweed pie was a bold and interesting choice that we liked but some may find odd. A lovely take on the middle Eastern classic majadra can be found here. Can recommend the Leffe blond beer and the tamarind drink is refreshing without being too sweet. Nice... More

I thought the food was only fair and it was really expensive for a plate of rice and vegetables. We were a party of four and everyone's food came 15 minutes before mine. It was awkward. No one wanted to start eating before I had my food but their food was getting cold. When my food finally came it wasn't... More

This restaurant is not easy to find. It's in the historic Confederation House in the beautiful landscaped area across from the Old City walls at the end of Emile Botta Street. Once you've found it, you are in for a treat. Unlike much of the pasta-heavy vegetarian food on offer in Jerusalem, this presents a colorful medley of interesting grain... More

Great restaurant for vegans and vegetarians. The tofu skewers with satay sauce were so tasty. I did not try my husbands stuffed peppers, because they had cheese in them, but he enjoyed. The salad we shared was very tasty and the sangria was delicious. We had a table by the open "window" which gave us a lovely view of the... More

Every time we visit Jerusalem, we meet friends for lunch at Te'enim. It is always a pleasant experience, with tasty food, bountiful portions and excellent service. The location, in the Zionist Confederation House, is a bit tricky to find, but if you use the King David Hotel as a guideline and walk behind it, it is not a problem. Before... More

This hidden restaurant is worth the search. The building and courtyard are lovely with the view to the walls of the Old City particularly striking. The service is pleasant and unhurried, the food varied, delicious, and well-prepared. This place deserves a visit whether to linger over coffee and one of the many cakes (vegan apricot is a must) or a... More

Ate here twice while in Jerusalem. You dont have to be a vegetarian to dine here. The food is fresh, delicious, imagainative and prepared with love and passion. The owner Verud (spelling might be off) is amazing...so warm and gratious. View is fantastic and ambience is peaceful. They treat you like family. You wont be disappointed. The desserts are out...
