“Wonderful View, Very Nice food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

I went to celebrate my engagement in Mamilla Rooftop Restaurant, the view was amaizing, specially because was Jerusalem Day and We could see Fireworks in the old city. It's a real nice place, the food was excelent and the service perfect!
The waiter called Itamar was very kind to us!
Very special night!

“Beautiful view, nice restarunt”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

All the registered in tripadvisor is true, food is wonderful. The problem is that one of our dish arrived cold and the athere one came warm. Really enjoyed the food. Although the wait for it was very long. The waitress was nice. I think her name was Naama or something similar. Thank you, you were very graceful.

“A night we'll never forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

This wasn't just dinner, it was an experience. We arrived 30 mins before sundown to enjoy the view. Little did we know we 'd enjoy it long after the sun went down as it's as beautiful as night as in the day. The service from Danielle was outstanding - truly first rate. Ask for her if service matters to you. Though the food was very, very good, it wasn't as outstanding as the rest of the experience. We lucked out as we were there for Jerusalem Day festivities, including fireworks over the Old City. Also, the restaurant gave us each a complimentary glass of champagne. All in all, fantastic!

“Best restaurant ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Location, location! A panoramic view of the Old City of Jerusalem! That with a menu of mouthwatering selections and a waiter named Itamar that could not have been more helpful and pleasant. Yes, it's pricey but we enjoyed everything and left smiling with hopes to return!

“Perfect place for drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Went here with my gf to enjoy drinks and an appetizer while the sun set over the Old City before dinner. The roof''s ambience is great with comfortable chairs, nice music and a breathtaking view over the entire city.

We sat at a hightop table near the bar. Our server, Shlomit, was great, helpful and patient and walked us through all of the possible dishes we could have ordered as a small appetizer. We eventually settled on the Sea Fish Sashimi which was delicious.

More importantly, for our drinks we were not sure what to order but again Shlomit threw out a bunch of suggestions. Eventually we just told her what flavor and base liquor we were looking for and she teamed up with Ran at the bar, to do just that. I wanted a spicy drink and Ran came over to explain how he made it and also made sure we enjoyed it! It was great, best cocktail I had while in Israel! If you go to the bar, ask for Ran and I am sure he will be able to whip up whatever you are in the mood for.

Great view, great service, and great quality- will definitely return.
