The food here was good. What I liked most though was the views and the pleasant atmosphere. It wasn' too expensive. The waitress from California was quite nice also.

Wonderful location, catch a movie and a meal . Great service and ambience. One of Jerusalem's jems. A bit too pricy in my opinion.

Excellent, really excellent food. We were with a party of 6 and tried a lot of different dishes. All without exception were fantastic. We are very experienced restaurant lovers and not easily impressed but the quality and elaboration of these dishes was really perfect. Must go. Trust me.

We were with a Gate1 tour, and there were 18 of us, everyone enjoyed their meal. The restaurant is a short walk from the Mount Zion Hotel, take a right from front door. Hotel staff will gladly give directions. Service was super and food to match!
