Lovely place, disappointing food

The Cinematheque's restaurant remains a great place to enjoy a drink or a meal with a view on the Old City's walls.

The menu at the restauarant is not this menu, but more limited to Jerusalem breakfast / Muesli morning / Pancake breakfast. Bread is limited to "full of air" white bread. This restaurant does not approach the standards set by Adom. We won't go again.

This has gotten some very good reviews here and that's why we went. We were disappointed with the food. Kind of boring and just so-so. View is beautiful though.
