Sweet outside patio. Had three meals here. Best was a mashed potatoe, mushroom & fried cheese. (Sorry can't remember the name). The little patio street side is lovely.

We wondered over to the German Colony for dinner and decided to try this restaurant. We had the absolute best salads ever. The green Sharshuka was excellent. The wait staff was excellent. It was a crowded evening during Pesach and everything was fantastic!

We had the mushroom oreganato salad. It was huge and very tasty. Great value for both the quality and the serving size! Lots of different unique flavor which didn't blend together. Could almost be enough for two people for dinner. We also had the mezzeh,...More

A very nice place in a lovely botanical garden of Jerusalem. The food is pretty good but the environment is lovely.
