Very tasty and good food. Authentic German sausages, sauerkraut, etc.-all the works. Very home style restaurant and service is personal and friendly. A bit expensive but worth it.

This is a small, family-run restaurant with very good sausages, potatoe salad and other typical German dishes.

Although not a deli the style I am used to as in Amsterdam or any European city This gem is a wonderful find in Jerusalem. Family (7th generation since 1795), personal touch and a warm welcome and service are elements I appreciate. Also the best sauerkraut or choucroute ever tasted. And I tasted several styles in Switzerland, the US and... More

All kosher sausages and pates along with traditional smoked meats and fish make this a great stop before a picnic. Don't expect to find a New York style deli with mile high corned beef sandwiches on rye, but what you get you will thoroughly enjoy

It was rumored to be the best deli restaurant. Sorry I didn't find it so. The food was both expensive and not to the quality that I have experienced in other cities. Simply forgetfull.

So, we went here on a recommendation from an Israeli friend. The food was absolutely phenomenal. You must, I repeat, you must have the Hungarian soup. I was worn between two sandwiches, so the manager decided to combine them into one sandwich for me, which was excellent. Unlike most Israeli restaurants, this restaurant will finagle the menu to your liking.... More

Very expensive, was offered a special but charged regular price, no one to talk once they ring your bill, a dog is present at all times very unpleasant. Food is superb no doubt and also unlike other restaurants they add a tax at the end, in Israel the prices quoted includes tax unless noted, in their menu it not noted,... More
