We visited Lavan Restaurant following T.A recommendations and were very disappointed. The food was not tasty, and we had to leave part of it uneaten. The service was unprofessional, sloppy, and indifferent. The prices are expensive. Bottom line: A great disappointment. Bad value for money.More

Hi Oren, Is this restaurant walking distance from the Kotel or is it too far? I'm going to be there with my family in September and would like a place to go for lunch afterwards. This restaurant came highly recommended. Thanks, Tammy
