Unique cosy cafe/restaurant with great food and lovely atmosphere

When we were there there was live music (often on Monday nights) They have an apartment above the cafe that you can rent... read more

I went there on several occasion with colleague and the place feels nice and comfy. The outdoor court is probably the place you should go if the weather is nice since the inside isn't worthwhile. The menu card had many western-oriented dishes and you can find few things for vegetarian and vegan as well. The 3 different waiters/waitress I had... More

Great little oasis in Ramallah. Be sure to double check the prices however, I did get the "bait and switch". Ordered something on the menu and the bill came which had a price which differed from the menu.

A small oasis in a bustling city! Lovely shaded patio/courtyard. "Needing" a burger, I chowed down on their cheeseburger with fries; my son enjoyed his chicken fettuccine. This is an absolutely great place to sit and enjoy a coffee as well! Our taxi driver had to stop and ask directions...so glad we found our way there.Would definitely recommend and perhaps... More

Disclaimer: After eating at Cafe La Vie the first time, I became friends with the owners over the course of my time in Ramallah. (But it's a small town, and the owners are friendly with many of their patrons, so I think it's ethical to review it anyway.) My opinion is that this place has the best food, service, and... 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.

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 price-to-quality ratio in town. The deserts...
