A comfortable place with delicious food. We ordered two entrees to share, a salad which was huge, as well as eggplant focaccia which was also enormous. It was hard for the 2 of us to finish them both. Very reasonably priced and lovely atmosphere.

Ample portions, tasty meals-we had breakfast and 2 dinners. Salad portions were huge, with tasty dressings. Don't be fooled by their name- they have so much more in addition to focaccia. Their selections of meat were excellent, although there was too much of it for me-maybe 1/2 the amount would work.

Yeah sure the Focaccias were good...that is even the place name but quite honestly I was not really impressed by the food. In the winter it is nice and cozy but summer time too many bees and flies. If you are not on a kosher, this is a very good place as few places in Jerusalem are not kosher.

We had great difficulty in finding this place and it was only just around the corner from our hotel which was the reason we choose it! So we were a bit late arriving but no worries we were escorted through a very full restaurant and givena table near the pizza oven. Waitresses were very attentive and we quickly got a... More

About a month ago my wife and I joined 2 other couples at the Focaccia Bar for dinner. We found the whole experience both delicious and affordable ( 6 people having more than enough to eat for 420 shekels). The waiters were solicitous and helpful in their menu suggestions, abd the food arrived in a timely fashion. The ambiance was... More

We ate here for an early dinner. We sat in the open courtyard and had some wine and the focaccia bread appetizer before dinner. Although service was slow, the ambience was nice with great music. They accommodated my picky son with some plain pasta with chicken, and our pizza (with pork on top!) was delicious. Although there were kids there,... More
