We had a wonderful weekend in Jerusalem in a hotel next to the old city. We wanted to enjoy a romantic dinner and Lavan absolutely gave us what we were looking for. The food was great and the location is wonderful. They even gave us personal attention by spoiling us with free dessert after we made the reservation to celebrate... More

Lavan Cinematheque is a hidden gem in Jerusalem - one of my lunch favorites. Excellent food and relaxing laid back atmosphere in a city filled with chaos. I had the Papparadelle Short Ribs - excellent dish. Great view of Jerusalem and a nice break from the outside environment!

The Lavan restaurant at the Cinemateque is a wonderful restaurant with a beautiful view of the Old City walls. It has a broad range of food and an excellent wine selection. It is also open on Saturday and attracts primarily a native Israeli crowd.

Two visits here reinforced that the quality was good, the location (overlooking the Begin Heritage Center) at the Cinematheque is a definite go-to place, especially on Saturday where choices in Jerusalem are somehwat limited. Sit at a window (or on the balcony) and enjoy the views along with the food. English menus available and the staff are very helpful and... More
