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

The food is unusual and prices are reasonable. We went with a group of old friends and were able to sit and talk undisturbed for a long time. However, La Boca is one of the few restaurants in Jerusalem where you must buy wine from their menu at their prices and cannot bring a bottle from home for a corkage... More

My son and I shared a BBQ dinner for 2 - it had rib steak, lamb chops, skirt steak and one other kind of meat - all on a mound of... More

We visited here with three hungry teenage boys and we were not disappointed. If you love beef then this is the place for you although they do serve great chicken and fish. The portions are large and the choice on the menu is wide. The staff are lovely (really pleasant and helpful) and remained unruffled even when our meal was... More

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.
