Very limited menu with free-from-gluten items. Item recommended by the waiter the was “safe” (chicken fillet in vegetable sauce) was very salty and covered in a tomato sauce, that was not to my liking. Disappointing. The wine from the Golan Heights was good though!

Food was not bad. Service too slow. Wanted to get up and leave. Smoking at next table in our face. Large bees hovering over our table. Never again.

The restaurant serves traditional Jewish dishes. Very reasonably priced and a great atmosphere with music around you in the evening. I ordered the soup and pierogi which are both delightful.
