I ordered the steak, 250 grams, medium well. The meat, I understand, is from Argentina. I could not believe how tasty it was. The crunchy potatoes were delicious too. Everything was served hot. For not much extra, I could have ordered the 400 gram steak but that would have been altogether too large. I enjoyed the accouterments, the hot bread... More

Last saturday we have celebrated my father's 70 birthday, 11 adults and one 5 years old. The restaurant is located at one of the most beautiful neighborhoods of Jerusalem in an old renovated house on the second floor, take that in consideration if you come with seniors or handicaps. The food included fish, tortillas, steaks, salads, chicken and anything you... More

Returning and knowing what to expect, this Argentinian restaurant did nothing to surprise you. The meat was succulent but the potatoes were lukewarm. The service was O.K. but nothing special and you don't feel especially welcome.

My husband and I eat at La Boca whenever we're in Jerusalem. The menu has a terrific selection of items, the portions are generous, and the prices reasonable. My husband and I shared chicken paella and beef fajitas; both had excellent flavor, although some of the beef was not quite tender. We also got the delightful "baby leaf" salad with... More

La Boca is our favorite restaurant in Jerusalem. Very good food: the chicken rap, chopped liver and above all- the stakes! The service is always great and the sitting, above "Emek Refaim"- watching the busy street, is just great (make sure you seat in the porch).

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon. We ordered the grilled mixed meat platter for 2 people. We both thought it was one of the best kosher meat meals we have ever eaten. There was so much food (lamb chops, steak, filet covering a pile of roasted potatoes) and the service was excellent. We would definitely recommend this... More
