Each time I am in Jerusalem I make a point of eating at Cavalier. The food is refined and delicious. To start, try the tagliolini with egg, truffles and cream. The staff are always very kind. The restaurant is on a side street so it's a bit hard to find, but well worth a visit.

My sister and brother-in-law arranged to have lunch at one of the best restaurants in Jerusalem for my birthday at their semi private room. We had great time tasting their wonderful food and drinking good wine for a few hours. I could not ask for a better company, restaurant or food!!

great food and even better service,our waiter was professional and knew everything there is to know about the restaurant, the food and even the city, the restaurant could use a facelift but besides that- amazing. definitely a must.

We visited Cavalier with a partner from abroad and we all liked their business lunch: the food was great and the prices very reasonable. Would readily consider it again for a similar occasion.
