Lovely as always

Lovely place with wonderful views, good food, good wait staff. We make a point of going to Lavan when we are in Jerusalem because it is so comfortable, so pleasant and . . . well . . delicious! Try the panna cotta for dessert.

We were visiting the city for almost 4 weeks with our 8 year old granddaughter. The wait staff had an enjoyable time with children and our granddaughter had an equally great time with the wait staff. Our granddaughter is a vegetarian but we are not. The staff made sure she had all vegetarian and what she wanted. The deserts were... More

After a preview of Ido Har's excellent documentary film "Princess Shaw", it was only natural to have our lunch in Lavan. We didn't need to reserve although if you plan to dine on Friday or Saturday, you should. Our waitress, and I regret not asking her name, was very helpful and quick. She was rushing all over-tending tables, quick to... More

Our bat mitzvah celebration traveling party had a spectacular and memorable dinner at Lavan on the Saturday evening of my daughter's simcha. They have a special menu for groups which can be easily ordered ahead of time. They serve the course in family style and the food was nothing short of spectacular. The salads were sumptuous and the gnocchi, risotta,... More

Our waitress was wonderful!! Brought us a taste of the soup, was very honest about which wine by the glass to order, and even shared a recipe with me. As for the food, the pizza was a great shared dish for my kids and my husband and I loved the fish and seafood stew. Make sure to get a table... More

Great location. Has outdoor terrace with views of the old city. Menu is not large, but a good selection of mostly Italian influenced dishes. Salads were great. Sop was the veal. You can also make a light snack of appetizers. Full bar, decent selection of wines. Very friendly staff. Recommended.
