“Tastiness.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We found this place on our first evening and were impressed with the food and the staff. The prices were reasonable for the old city and the quality of the food and portion size was good. The staff were very helpful as well.

“Toilets are ok”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Food was never this boring. Dishes with absolutely no taste (possibly microwave heated?) and a bored waiter. Choose the kebab down the street instead. The toilets were ok though.

“Delicious lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Our tour guide brought us here for lunch during our day trip to Jerusalem. The food was fantastic and the service was the same- excellent!

We had the Jerusalem appetizer to start and then the chicken with cous cous and beef kebob with rice.

“Good exception in the old city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

The old city of Jerusalem is a great place to visit but it's not easy to find a good restaurant. The likely risk is to eat in an expensive dive. Amigo Emil is an exception. You can have very good arabic food in a cozy atmosphere.
The price is ok, even more convenient than worse restaurants out of the walls.
