The food was ok. We were not very impressed with it. It was tasty but not more than that. However, the view as amazing!

We loved the smoked salmon blinis (topped with caviar) and the Fish Tartar. They have a flair here and we loved every bite! The service was excellent!

This restaurant is overlooking the old city walls. The food is above average but not amazing, great for s casual family get together. I want to specifically mention the great hostess Natalie - she was extremely helpful and friendly, and helped us find a table for a bug group although the restaurant was full. Great hospitality!

Ate here again as we do on every visit to Jerusalem. This place is opened on friday evening and saturday, which is a rare in Jerusalem. The food is devine, the views of the ancient walls and park are beautiful, the tables are large and there is pleasant space between them. Great place!

Healthy fresh Israeli lunch with a great view looking up at the old city. It's about a 10 minute walk from the Jaffa Gate. The restaurant is located in the same building as the cinemateque, a theater that shows a mix of new and old films. Don't miss the root salad and the grilled eggplant.

We came in four adults with five children. Everything we tried was excellent. One of the orders was different than its description in the menu, so we were not charged for it. All in all it was a great evening.

We had a great time here. The food was superb, and the service kind and attentive. They also catered for the needs of our Youngest child. Also - try the Shapira beer (on tap). Surprisingly good local beer.

I had lunch in this small restaurant that is part of the Cinematek. Excellent Italian food for a very reasonable price. I had a pasta dish with mushrooms. Delicious. Recommended!

Beautiful place near the hotel Mount Zion we had the chance to try the Mushroom menu during their winter musroom festival and it was faboulous. wine selection is impresive with options from Israel and Europe. great restaurant if you are in the city. P.S better to book before....
