Ramallah remains an anomaly in the West Bank thanks to the large number of NGOs, aid organizations, the Palestinian Authority governmental agencies, and the consequent demand for indigenous and international foods. And while international visitors and workers do seek out the Palestinian restaurants in town--great variety of foods and levels of quality--a spot like La Vie seems a necessary refuge... More

This place has ambiance. The garden is beautiful and a bit secluded. The indoors is cosy (warm, red interior), a mix of tables, booths (super comfy) and nice chairs. The music is mostly good, sometimes they play bad 80's American music (not the good stuff), but you can always ask them to change it. Sometimes Arabic music. Despite the smokers... More

We went to this cafe/restaurant based on strong recommendations from a local and good friend. It is tucked away near the center on Qastel st; as such it is an intimate, relaxed and beautiful environment that caters to an eclectic clientele; including many foreigners. The beer on draft, such as San Miguel, is nice. Our waiter was not particularly attentive... More

Cafe La Vie is a must for any trip to Ramallah. The owner, Saleh, an incredibly friendly and quirky guy, has lived his whole life in the house where his cafe exists. He and his smiley wife Morgan have created a beautiful little world for any friend of Palestine to come experience. Quiet and peaceful during the day with an... More

Slightly hidden cafe and restaurant with amazing outdoor seating in the garden. You can meet a mix of expats and locals there. International and local cuisine. We had some beers, burgers, haloumi cheese, chicken, pasta and shisha that lasted for eternity. Service was great. Free wifi.

Excellent menu from locally sourced & grown produce. Lemonade with mint was very good. Really enjoyed the cheeseburger with fries. Owners really cool and helpful & very well informed re local activities & politics. Nice chilled out ambience. You must visit.
