We had a sharing platter for 3 which was ok. Too much dried herbs on the chicken dish and taste of the same herb in one of the sauces. Staff were very friendly and quick. Surprised they served rice!

A very busy cafe, handy to town, but quite noisy, and not a very relaxing place to pass the time. Good if you just want to have a quick cuppa and go.

I was only after takeaway salads but there was very little on offer. Was hoping for beetroot, bean or lentil salads. Ended up getting a tabuoleh salad in the end (unfortunately it had no tomato)! Such a shame as I was really looking for a bit more variety. Probably great if you were looking to dine in and eat a... More

We had read these great reviews and heard good things so were keen to eat here, especially as BYO is an added bonus. However, we must have caught them on a bad night or maybe a different chef was on?? Sadly all our meals and the baklava left us disappointed. Bland is the only way it could be described, from...

Having not been out for dinner with my husband for well over a year, we chose this restaurant on the back of a few good recommendations from friends and family. We booked a table nice and early and were greeted with a smile and served very quickly. We ordered the Mezze Platter which was cooked in good time, absolutely teaming... More

Great food and good service - we have been several times and the only complaint is that we have eaten our way through the menu and would love to try something new!

Prompt and friendly service by very pleasant waitress. The food was delivered - well displayed and very 'healthy' sized portions!

By the time I reach Kerkeri I am always tired and cant be bothered dining out so I head to Cafe Jerusalem to pick up takeaways to take back to the Motel. Food is always freshly cooked and plenty of it. I choose a meal option which gives you a meat of your choice, rice, salad and hummus. Cafe is... More
