Good place to relax

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

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...

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
