“An Enjoyable & Educational Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Our family of adults joined local friends to taste biblical food & learn about the history as well. It is an intimate setting warm & inviting. Everyone enjoyed their selections & my Maglubeh was just delicious. Service is attentive & English is well spoken. I would HIGHLY recommend adding this to your Must Include on a trip to Jerusalem. I know I will return ....someday.

“Great location and staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Happened to be going by towards Yemin Moshe and popped in with my wife for a couple of beers.
We sat outside.
Beer offerings were pretty good.
The server was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. He also gave us some delicious vegetarian appetizers on the house, which was a delightful surprise.
A number of vegetarian options available on the menu, and a willingness to adjust other non-veg items so they are suitable for vegetarians.
Would go highly recommend.

“Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Nice restaurant with friendly staff. The food is honest without being extraordinary. There was a good atmosphere the night we visited. The location is a bit out on it's own, in an up and coming area, you wont stumble upon it on your travels around the sites. Whilst it was probably our best meal in Jerusalem it was by far our most expensive.
I will probably get criticised for saying that I don't think that you visit Jerusalem for it's dining out experiences.

The food was amazing! Great wait staff. Recommend getting a reservation even at 9:30 on a Saturday night. We loved the date appetizer!

“Flavorless food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The atmosphere was pleasant, the staff was very nice, and the food looked good- but nothing had any flavor whatsoever. A big disappointment.
