It was the best dinner I had in Jerusalem. I really enjoyed the flavors. It was served family style so we tried a variety of dishes. The atmosphere was great. We overlook a big lawn with lots of activity and there was a great view....More

Turns out Lavan is closing it's doors and an Asian place will open instead. Too bad. Sat there twice last week and had a great meal. The staff is very friendly and the view is incomparable.

We were 4. The salads were fine. I ordered pasta with meet. The pasta was overcooked, the meet was tasteless. Prices are not cheap. Service was good. Bottom line, go to better restaurants in Jerusalem

Ate here with 9 of us and 3 kids. Food was wonderful. Would have preferred to sit outside, but excellent service and food. Fish and green curry were amazing and so flavorful. Portions were huge. Lovely restaurant

Our tour group took us here for the final evening of our tour. They saved the best to the last. First, we're treated with the view of the old city. Then, the meal kept coming with salad and roasted pepper, pasta, lamb meatball, and the...More

My wife and I just returned from dinner at the Lavan Restaurant. The food was unremarkable, except perhaps for the salmon ceviche which was quite good. What set this restaurant apart from every other restaurant we have sampled in our 2 weeks in Israel was...More

Our tour group went here for dinner one night, and we were delighted with the ambiance, the service, and especially the food! I'm not a big salad fan, but I loved the salad here. The mixed veggies were very good, and the gnocchi were OK....More
