My favorite spot in Ramallah

Ramallah is a boom town with new restaurants opening, and closing, all the time. Yet La Vie has never had to worry too much about the competition. The owners have obviously put in a lot of effort here. The decor is understated but well done. The meals are consistently delicious and have the best... read more

Its a really nice place but food was bland. Nice service and friendly. I would go again but probably just for drinks. Cool place to visit.

Very nice seating outside, good selections of beer( I particularly recommend trying out the local beer from berzeit called shepherds the blonde variety), good cakes and specials, worth checking out and going back again

Spent a lovely morning under the lacy shade of an olive tree eating a great omelet and drinking tea.

Really enjoy La Vie. Great food, locally grown and sourced. The owner even grows many items in the back of the restaurant. The garden is beautiful and is excellent for hanging out and relaxing.

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
