“Amazing-Even better second time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Just ate there with my wife and son. Had the most amazing meal. Lamb brains (really!) was delicious. I had a burger filled with goose liver; it was the best burger I ever had. My son had the filet mignon; It was equally delicious ( I tasted it). My wife had the chicken which was also moist and delicious.

Deserts were terrific also. Service is fast and friendly. Will definitely return.

“Best value for money in Jerusalem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Whenever my family visits Jerusalem we go to Hachatzer. It is by far the best kosher food in Jerusalem that isn't over priced.

“Phenomenal Restaurant with a creative chef!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This evening I went to Hachatzer in a group of four people. From when we first walked in the restaurant was impressive; nice decor and a friendly staff. Our group decided to go the adventurous route and try the tasting menu. The tasting menu is a 3-4 course, 12 dish meal including several fishes, meats, and some chicken (190 Nis per person).

Each and every dish continued to impress all of us with beautiful presentation and amazing flavors. Some of the dishes include an asian style sea bass melt in your mouth beef ribs (being that we are in Israel this was actually called Veal...), sweetbreads with aioli sauce, and a vanilla-halva ice cream.

Overall, the meal was phenomenal and we had a wonderful experience and highly recommend this restaurant!

“Excellent restaurant in German Colony.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

My family of 5 enjoyed an excellent meal (one daughter did not love sirloin). Most of us had fish. Great service. Kosher.

“AMAZINGLY TASTY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Food is carefully prepared, skilfully spiced and attractively presented.
Living proof that Kosher Food can be exceedingly tasty. Quoting "Le Guide Michelin" it is "Worth a Detour..."
