This strictly kosher restaurant was recommended to me. If one did not get pointed in this direction you would never find it as it is well hidden away from the road. Bit in saying this, the restaurant was packed so obviously has a great reputation. Food was excellent, empty plates all round and portions were well sized. Service was impeccable... More

It was, unfortunately not more than O.K. Firstly we were served fresh breads and small side dishes. We had a polenta ( all right) fish balls ( bad) and ox tail which was too fat ( as far as I know a good chef has to remove parts of the fat) . The services was good and we were given... More

First I must mention it is very difficult to find so you are expecting an amazing meal because if you are trekking and using google maps and still getting lost it must be a really amazing place. The meal started out with the air conditioning dripping on our heads. When we complained all they said was that they knew. With... More

I ordered the veal assado cooked in an orange/ginger BBQ sauce. The side I chose was the green beans. The veal was moist and flavorful. A nice portion was served. The bread was fresh, hot and delicious! The bread was accompanied by two small salads and two dips. The green beans were old and inedible. The silverware was not changed... More

Elegant, yet informal. Haute Cuisine for the masses. Always consistent and yet surprising. This is the place you take the the people you really care about. Perfect for special occasions, business and general entertaining

One would expect to have a big choice of kosher options in Jerusalem. This is definitely one of the best. Great variety of first courses . Especially the eggplant cream. Everybody enjoyed the main courses includjng or fish or meat.

This restaurant provides quality food in friendly surroundings. Cuts of kosher meats, unobtainable in the U.K. are cooked to perfection (although rare is very rare!) and served with a choice of quality and varietal Israeli wines. A very popular restaurant together with its cousin "Medita" - very close by- so must book!
