There was eight of us who went here for dinner from our Gate 1 Tour group at Lavan. The service and view were excellent. We ordered a bottle of Chardonnay from the Golan Heights. We had a delicious bread starter with shallots, dates and cheese for our table. I ordered the black pasta with seafood. It was served with mussels,... More

Came with a group, so the menu was fixed. Hummus was excellent as were the salads. Meats were a bit overcooked and dry. The main entrees may have been off since they were serving 30+ individuals. I'd try this restaurant again.

We went to lavan during our tour in Jerusalem, as group. the first time we were in, we got a fixed menu which was delicious, but the second time - 4 of us went back there to enjoy the view and the lovely staff, and we could'nt stop smiling about the food. try the beet and rikotta ravioli, it's excellent!!...

We came with 2 toddlers and one vegetarian and everyone had something to eat. The dishes are big and the prices accordingly. You can ask a special meal for the kids like pasta with cream sauce.

We we're a party of 8 friends. Service and attention was excellent. Items that we ordered we're tasty and well plated. Excellent atmosphere and music, most important could have a conversation since music was not dominant. Recommended

Very good and nice service. They accommodated our needs in many ways. Food is very good with nice variety. And the setting is nice especially if you get to seat on the balcony with view of the old city. Try to combine the meal there with a movie in the Cinematheque before or after and it will be a winner!... More

We were party of 3, the pizza was very good, the hamburger was also good, the best dish was the special of the day, it was kebabs with tahina. They have an excellent wine list. they had my favorite Israeli wine. Try Gamla Chardonnay, they have it in the menu.

After a nice evening walk in old city of Jerusalem we have chosen Lavan restaurant for a dinner. The location is very good with fine view of old Jerusalem and the Moon shining above the city. My starter - Salmon tartare with turmeric aioli was an symphony for the palate, followed be a great "fish of the day". We were... More
