Great meat in a pleasurable atmosphere

The dinner was initiated by the waiter coming with dips on the house, very nice, followed by great meat, the Milanese was just as I expected the cousin of a Wiener Schnizel, but on beef and not calf. The accompanying persons had a grilled meat mix and they were very happy. Good meat and a bit... read more

Carnivore"s delight! I hadn't seen such a great selection of meat since I had been in BA three years ago-- and kosher. Since I was staying in a hotel, my native guests got all the left overs. It is pricey but worth it

We have been to La Boca several times lately, and each time has been a great experience. The waiters are happy to find out which items are gluten free (may change from visit to visit) They customize dishes by not putting in ingredients that contain gluten The portions are beautifully presented and are large Meat is well cooked and not...

There was a special advertised with a dinner menu for 89 NIS. We went with friends and discovered that at least three of the items on the special menu were not available that night. The waiter was obviously inexperienced. He took our orders for first courses and then forgot to bring them, so he brought the main courses first. He... More

Still one of the finest meat serving restaurant in Jerusalem. The food is very delicious and well made. The dishes size is quite large. We (as a couple) ordered two firsts and two mains. We couldn't finish. The service is polite and quick. The only think they need to improve is the look of the place which got a bit... More

I started the meal with vegetable soup. It was probably the best I've ever had. No preservatives, just full of fresh vegetables. Nest course was Spring chicken with antipasti. All delicious and well cooked. One of my companions didn't fare so well, as the waitress forgot to pass on the order for his, and he didn't get his until 20... More

I was in the mood for a nice juicy steak and by golly, did I get it! We couldn't believe how fast it was served up, too. It was perfectly cooked, just as I like it, and the taste was wonderful. The accompaniments were tasty although I found the chimichurri (?) sauce a little spicy for my taste. I was... More
