“DAIRY/VEGETARIAN UNUSALLLY GOOD FOOD WITH A VIEW”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I have said it all in the title. The ingredients are pure, Patrique knows his food and the niche he espouses and the view of the Old City Walls remarkable. The food is tasty and prepared with care and knowledge.

“too little”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We were staying in the Yemin Moshe district of Jerusalem, and, because we are vegetarian, popped in here.
Not a very inspiring menu. Very few beers on hand. Ordered white wine that was only just slightly cooler than room temp. and came in grubby glass, that was 'replaced'? in an equally grubby glass. My wife had a-little-underdone shitake mushroom dish, and had mediocre polenta plate.
Snooty sort of atmosphere, like they take themselves way too seriously, rather than defering to the customer. We did get a window seat with a nice view towards the old city.
The portions were small, but the prices were pretty big.
Wouldn't recommend it.

“Most Amazing Vegetarian/Vegan in Jerusalem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Everything is super fresh, organic,healthy, and kosher. Food is made freshly when ordered. The best juices and wine in the city. Spectacular view of the Old City. Very Elegant, clean, and fresh home cooking. One of the best restraunts in town. :)

This Restaurant provides the best Vegan dishes in Jerusalem.

The blend of French and North African cuisine in Vegan form is just wonderful.

On my list of must do again when in Jerusalem.

“Little Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place was in a Cultural Center and you would never ever think that you would get an amazing meal in this small restaurant.

We had local red wine that was delicious. The vegetarian dishes were savory and filling. We tried two different cakes for dessert. Everything was homemade and made to order.

The people who worked there were beyond delightful. Because we were one of the last patrons there we got to talk to the owner to compliment how incredible everything was. Come to find out she had lived with her family in Orange County right next to where I grew up. Crazy! She also gave us some inside scoop on where to go when visiting the Dead Sea.

We absolutely loved this restaurant. Relaxed environment, small and quaint, delicious food even if you are not vegetarian, and very informative staff and owner who offer you the finest and freshest food for your tastebuds.

Go! Enjoy! Tell her hello for us from Orange County!
