The Eucalyptus has a great chef and a great location and atmosphere, and is somewhere that feels special. It's one of the places I take visiting business partners to in order to make a good impression. The food is "Middle Eastern", but it's original, so...it's not somewhere to "get to know the Middle East", but rather to have a fancy chef meal.More

We had been looking forward to trying this restaurant having heard so many amazing things about it and we weren’t disappointed! We decided to try the tasters menu and each and every dish was incredible. Delicious and so beautifully presented that it was (almost !)...a shame to eat it. The service was excellent and the charming owner / chef Moshe Basson even came out a couple of times to chat and make sure that we were enjoying our meal. we sat outside on a table under a honeysuckle bush that provided a fragrant accompaniment to our outstanding meal .More

We had a wonderful evening at Eucalyptus. The setting is delightful, a picturesque terrace in the heart of Jerusalem. The meal was splendid, so many fine choices and you can't go wrong,whatever you pick. Everything is fresh and a bit surprising, so that even a...familiar dish like a grilled chicken breast becomes out of the ordinary. The staff provide patient,friendly,meticulous service. Our server Tal explained all of the options and showed obvious pride in his work. Gluten-free options were plentiful. Probably the best restaurant meal I have every had.More

Beautifully located near the old walls of Jerusalem, this restaurant is a great experience. The great food with many vegan options and a great service where all the time they bring free dishes in the most generous way one can imagine. This by far the...best restaurant I had in Jerusalem in a long time. Thank you Chef Moshe Basson for caring and coming to our table to have a short personal conversation. It gives the extra spice for a great place.More

Myself and my partner had an incredible time at the eucalyptus last night. The food, goes without saying, was incredible as well as the service. The restaurant has a really unique ambiance partly due to its location as well as the character of the food....The meal on the one hand felt very genuine and Israeli but at the same time very modern and exciting We are looking forward to our next visitMore
