“Creative cooking, hidden away off the main drag to Jerusalem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Truly creative cooking, the inventive, ever changing mezze starters are a real must as is the absolutely delicious shank of super tender, falling of the bone lamb.
Really peaceful tucked away location, food is served al fresco. As the restaurant is high up there is a cooling breeze, lovely views all around and the occasional sound of the Muezzin.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Wonderful experience. A beautiful place, top service and unique food. A little bit pricy but worth it.

“...and now for something completely different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

high up the winding alleys of Ein Raffa, across te highway from the better known Abu-Gosh, nestels a modest reaturant in a rustic atmosphere, where local Palestinian tastes blend effortlessly with refined cooking. I recommend this beautiful joint Arab-Israeli establishment for all those who are looking for a lovely meal in a peaceful location.
The service was good, the prices quite reasonable, and the wntire effect is lovely.

“Different food and flavours!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Last saturday ,me and my wife looked for something different than the usual restaurants in Abu-Gosh. Those serve good arab food ,but do not offer anything special. We decided to try the different food served at Majda and we were not disappointed. The dishes are very unusual ,the mix of flavours are very tasty and the restaurant is located at a very beautifull arab village. I do recommend for those looking for something different!!
