Outstanding restaurant in the middle of the Old Town. We went twice, the owner is friendly and helpful, the food plentiful and freshly prepared. The grilled meat dishes are excellent. A good choice for lunch or supper.

We had an early dinner after a day of sightseeing in Jerusalem. Delicious food and friendly relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely recommend. Dinner for family of 4 about 65 pounds or 274 shekels including a drink each.

No reservation required for us, but we went in three people at about 9 pm. If you're in many people, it's better to make a reservation
