“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

Nice atmosphere. Attentive and friendly service. Also honest--we almost forgot our credit card, but they ran after us with it.

Beef carpaccio was one of the best we'd ever had. Salsa that came with the bread were wonderful. The paella was excellent (albeit not truly paella). Very impressed overall.

“la boca Jerusalem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

In the busy street called Emek Rafaim, La Boca is always our favourite although it isn't so cheap! The food is consistently good, we go there every time we visit Jerusalem which is about three times a year. The steaks and grills are excellent, everything is lovely.. I really recommend the sorbet to finish off with!

High quality food and the lunch time (before 4) specials were a good deal.

“great meat, great service, they know what "gluten-free" means”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

The waiter saw we couldn't decide what to take so he suggested the assorted plate for two which comes with a green salad. When I asked what he suggested for a first course, he said we didn't need one. He said everything on the grill is gluten-free. After 10 minutes the plate arrived - 2 entrecote steaks (one well done, one medium as per request), 3 lamb chops, 2 or 3 chicken portions, 2 chorizo sausages, on a bed of crisp baked potatoes. And I may have forgotten something - there was so much!
When I checked with the waiter whether he was sure the sausage was gluten-free, he said they no longer make it themselves so he can't be sure - he said not to eat it and instead brought us (at no cost) a couple of delicious kebabs.

Everything tasted great, including the salad. We drank water. And the service was prompt, professional and polite.

I intend going back there again.
