We had lunch at this restaurant because we went to see a movie in the adjacent theater (the Cinematek). We sat at the balcony, with a very nice view of the Old City Wall and Mt. Zion. We ordered yam soup which was delicious, a small salad, and a Sicilian kebab with vegetables' stew and lentils, over a bruschetta. We... More

I really love Lavan. The food is fresh and delicoius without being presumptuous. I came here a few times before and after a movie and enjoyed it every time. Don't expect fancy dishes, but the service is friendly and efficient, the prices are fair and the food is enjoyable.

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 perfect atmosphere to complete a wonderful visit. Highly recommend... 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!
