Perfect ending to an amazing journey through Israel

After a 9 day journey in Israel our group went to this restaurant. It was the exclamation point at the end of our time. Everything was memorable from the salads, salmon, ravioli to dessert...and the addition of some perfectly paired Israeli wines. The wait staff were so attentive and kind. A... read more

Great atmosphere on there covered porch set the stage for our large group dinner. We had family style passed around dishes of salad, bread, sashimi, salmon, chicken, and veggies and then some amazing mousse desserts. One of the best meals in Israel we had!

As you probably know, most of the restaurants in Jerusalem are closed at Shabes, from Friday evening to late Saturday night. Only a few are open, so the choice "where to eat during the Shabes" is not too big. I would definitely recommend "Lavan in the Cinematheque" for the following reasons: 1/ good service 2/ good food, including a nice... More

We went here just before going to see a film in the cinemateque. The food was very disappointing, reminiscent of mediocre hotel food. We had minestrone soup, antipasti and pizza - and none of them were decent. Skip the food, have a glass of wine at the bar or on the terrace and enjoy the view before a film

There aren't many restaurants open in Jerusalem on Friday night & Saturday. This is one of our preferred ones. We live in Jerusalem & love the beautiful view of the Old City of Jerusalem from the porch. I ordered the bass which was looked aesthetic & was done well. My wife & sister-in-law ordered a salad & minestrone soup which... More

Food was very tasty and the draught beer was great. We sat in the balcony and enjoyed the great views and good service. I ordered the mushroom pasta which was excellent. The bill for two pasta main dishes and 2 half litres of beer was 192 shekels. I will go again.
