In short: we could forgive the lack of quantity if we had quality. It's a pity to serve middle eastern food that is so tasteless. Very bad value for price experience.

Our small group were delighted with the huge selection of salad and vegetable plates plus pita bread, felafel, humus, tahini and nameless other dishes with stuff to be scooped up with bread! It's a cellar and has decent toilets!

I visited this restaurant twice, the first time for lunch with a group I was travelling with, the second as I was wandering the streets alone a week later. Both experiences were good. The food was good, plenty of it and very good service. A week later I just needed a place to relax for a minute and have a... More

I would not normally write a review of a place where all we had was coffee, but this one stands out. It has a cave-like interior that is completely in keeping with the old city. One could feel confident that this this structure has been there for a long time. It was a cool respite on a very hot day.... More

We had a basic lunch of falafel (15 NIS) and tabbouleh (8 NIS) and some hummus (8 NIS). Plus a drink, lunch for 2 was about 45$. Bathrooms were nice... More

This is a great little restaurant in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem. Its decor and building work is fabulous and evidently has historical value. The food here is pretty good and the staff are friendly and helpful. The staff were particularly attentive to our young child and gave him some finger food to nibble on before our... More

I ordered lamb kabots and the smell and taste were so strong I couldn't eat it. prices are... More

Only stopped in for a short coffee break. Disappointed that they only serve one type of coffee. Clean, quick, friendly, good prices. Did not try the food.
