Simply great food without too much sophistication. Traditional and yet stimulating. Beautiful ancient ceiling. Surprisingly they kept forgetting serving the water we kept asking for on a very hot day. Very clean

The restaurant is located a little far away form the market area, 15 minuts walking, but you have to go there for dinner. We ate a fantastic marinated meat with vegetables and a very good chicken. Hummus also is really good. The restaurant is very...More

Homely atmosphere, tasty food. I took a 'Sour Kube soup' which I really liked. Also the meatballs were fine. The waitresses were really helpful. The price is high but not above the Israeli standard.
