We had lunch at Lavan Café Restaurant and it was excellent. For two, we both had the Gazpacho which was a little spicy, just right and then shared a pate plate. And, ordered the focaccia, which is delicious. It seems every restaurant in Israel has San Pellegrino so i'm always happy but they have wines as well.

A really great view of Jerusalem walls. Regarding food everything is good, but I recommend the Fillet and the polenta with mushrooms.

Being a local, it's always refreshing to find new places. Made me feel like a tourist in my own Capitol. The view of the walls and David's tower really create a great backdrop for a great lunch experience.
