We've been to LaBoca at least 5 times and it has been outstanding every time. High quality delicious meat. A special treat for people who keep kosher. Located on Emek refaim. Great service, pleasant atmosphere.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on Emek Refaim and were sold by the menu at the door. As it was on the first floor i had to carry our buggy upstairs with my son in asleep. When we got upstairs we sat down and were served straight away. The restaurant seemed really nice and the food arrived very quickly. I... More

La Boca is well located in the German Colony area and features a really nice second floor with views onto the street. We were really looking forward to a good steak in Jerusalem, but left disappointed. We were happy to overlook completely inattentive service, but the food could not be excused. The empanada starters were more of a fusion attempt... More

Unbelievable food. You have to try this place. The may is amongst the best I have ever tasted and the atmosphere is fantastic as well. Highly recommended.

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).
