“I need some space please..., oh AC too please...., Toda!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

It's called: Golden City Panoramic Restaurant & Café Roof.

I seen it's said Don't Know, Jerusalem, Israel, while I took their business card when we eat in this place, it says:
Jerusalem-Old City-Christian Quarter-Dabagha-Aftemos Market No. 130

We half finish from our tour program and our tour guide brings us here to have lunch.
At first, we thought, oh boi, he is taking us to a small gyros place.
And he asks everyone to follow him to the 2nd floor when the restaurant is.

You have choices to have buffet at about NIS80 (1USD=NIS3.50) or you can have special food like Shwarma and drink for NIS45.
Honestly, it's not really great choices for the buffet, and the seating..., it's a problem there...it's a big problem, it's too close to each other and so narrow and you won't feel comfortable when eating. And NO AC..., so kind a hot!.
Service is poor actually, they are not attentive, yes, they accept major credit card.

In my understanding and observation, although there are couple restaurants around the area, and this one is considered safe and way much better place.

“Not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We were brought here for lunch during a guided tour of Jerusalem. The gentleman taking orders was extremely rude, unfriendly and unhelpful - he kept barking the options at us and when a question was asked regarding the food, he got annoyed. The falafel was ok and my husband's lamb shwarma was also decent. Overpriced and not worth it.

“Nice view, food less than average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Went here with a group when we were with a guided tour in old town Jerusalem. We didnt really had much to choose from with food. Dont know if the menu was limited, or that we just could choose between two things. Anyway, ordered a pita with chicken, it came out with lamb and chicken. Not to fan of lamb.

If you go there, make sure you ask for the roof top! The view is amazing :)

“Great view and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Go to panorama if you want an amazing view of the old city while you eat. Ask to sit on the terrace.

The food was great quality, fresh salads, hummus and pita bread. The meat was great too. The service was efficient and extremely polite. If you are near the Church of the Holy Sepulcher a at lunch or dinner time, this is theplace to eat.

“Amazing view on Jerusalem while drinking a lemonade.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

After visiting the Holy church we saw this roof top restaurant and enjoyed a soup and drink with view on the mosque and other churches and places in Jerusalem. We loved it so much we went back there twice. We only drank something so we dont know how the food is.

Go there!!
