“Nice casual restaurant...surprisingly in a museum.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This restaurant is actually in a museum...Ticho House. Do yourself a favor, and if you are coming by taxi, just ask for Ticho House...no one seems to have heard of "Little Jerusalem," but everyone knows Ticho House. To get there you go down an alley, make a few turns, et., but it is easy to find if you just follow the Ticho House sign at the begining. The setting is nice, the food is OK, and the service is very friendly and efficient, but you go there more for the experience than the atmosphere or the food. The restaurant attracts a very mixed crowd, and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves...young, old, orthodox, tourists, etc. When you order food, in the Israeli fashion it comes right away, and there is a lot of it. Two of us ordered the salad, hummus, etc. appetizer to share, and the waitress warned us that that might be enough for our whole meal. It almost was. There is live music on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings. The evening we were there, there was a jazz quartet. While I generally do not like music in restaurants, this was extremely pleasant and enjoyable. There is an outdoor section that looks nice, but it was too chilly when we were there to try it.

“Great Food Beautiful Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

A perfect place for a lunch or dinner. My wife and I went out with another couple. The service was excellent, the food delicious and plentiful. Because of construction we had to sit indoors but it too is lovely. The guard let us tour around the Ticho house museum which adds to the quality of the visit.

“A bit hard to find - but worth the search”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We walked right by Harav Kook St. when we were on the main drag ( Rechov Yaffo ) but once we found the connection ( it actually seems more like an alley ) it was a short walk up the hill and then a left turn into a true alley. Despite the confusion it was all clearly marked. Once you get there you are in another place and time. It was a cold winter night so there was no thought of eating outside in the inviting looking garden area, which was secluded despite being in the City center. This is a dairy restaurant with a nice selection of salads and while not he-man food was nicely prepared, tasty and filling enough but left enough room for some good deserts!

Great Dairy food. Great service. A wonderful escape from the bustle of the city. And great history to boot! Great location. All in all, a wonderful experience.
