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.

The Mt. Zion hotel recommend this restaurant (a short walk from the hotel at the Cinematheque (there are no signs for the restaurant at the street level, so look for the Cinematheque sign).

This is where my husband and I went for dinner on our first night in Jerusalem. It was also Shabbat so we were expecting to find very few restaurants open. We were hesitant but decided this was the only place we saw open so we went. It was absolutely delicious! I had the Israeli meatballs which is basically ground lamb... More

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.
