Cafe Jehoshua was right down the street from where we were staying, so the first time we stopped in was pretty much to test out the neighborhood. Our breakfasts were delicious - I had the vegan shakshuka and my daughter had the pancakes with fruit....Even though the place was packed, the staff found a table for us right away. A few days later, we decided to try dinner there and were not disappointed. Our waitperson was outstanding and the food was great. We ended up going there one more time for breakfast as they had the best lemonade with mint of any place we tried. Yes, Jerusalem is an expensive city, and this place is right in line with local prices. We did not expect cheap. But we kept coming back for the friendly service, neighborhood vibe, and good food.More

Small, but popular cafe in Rehavia neighborhood. The food was good and the service was efficient. The place is pretty expensive, so prepare your wallet.

It used to be a nice place once... I cant believe I gave a nice review to this place in a past. The dishes only look big for the first sight. The prices are too high for what you get. The food actually is pretty...simple, but the prices -like if it was a fine dining restaurant with Michelin star. Too crowded during the nights. But the worst thing about this place is the service! The personnel have zero patience and rude attitude towards the customers! Conclusion: NEVER AGAIN !More

Super good food the only place in Jerusalem that asked us for a green pass in the past 3 weeks of eating out twice a day, the schnitzel and mash was delightful, the tuna ceviche was grand, and so was the shrimp spaghetti and chicken...breast. Can’t wait to try more from the menu.More

Delicious food. Service good. A bit crowded as there are limited tables for 4+, but great if you're solo (at the bar) or two people.

My first Jerusalem restaurant since C19 erupted. Went for lunch with family members. I order the "lunch special" salmon with pasta as the main course. It was excellent - tasty, juicy and full of flavors. As part of the "business lunch" (addition 28 Shekels) I...ordered the roast beef Brochette - that was really outstanding, red wine - which was good (but served in rood temperature - so had to add an ice cube) and coffee which was very good. The service was excellent - and very attentive to C19: we dined outdoors and were provide a barcorde - so we looked at the menu on our phones and the waiters are all wearing masks. The service was both very efficient and very polite and attentive (e. g., they refilled the water bottle - without having to ask). It is a bit pricey (for Jerusalem) - but definitely worth it.More

Non-kosher restaurant, but not open on Shabbat. The food was good, more or less Italian cuisine. It is a small restaurant, and we were told on entering that we could not stay there beyond 2 hours. Service was reasonably quick.

We had dinner there twice during our five day stay in Jerusalem. Each night the food, wine and service were excellent. Although this is a distinctly Israeli restaurant we, as Americans, felt very comfortable and appreciated (not that we felt otherwise elsewhere). As such, it...had a touch of home mixed with great cuisine and atmosphere. Would definitely go there again.More

It was my first time here at this restaurant and I have to say the sausages I ordered were very ordinary, nothing too special. I didn’t get nearly enough sauerkraut which was disappointing and even though they said the ice cream was homemade it certainly...didn’t taste like that at all! It was very icy with no flavour whatsoever. I certainly won’t be back anytime soon.More

We had heard about this restaurant from people who had been there before and said it was good. Maybe they were having a bad night a few days ago. I'm not prone to criticize restaurants, I far prefer to praise them. That night, I ordered...the schnitzel crumbed with parmesan and it was literally inedible. Thick pieces of very tough meat. I hardly ate any, it was terrible. Very disappointing in a country where you can get a good schnitzel almost anywhere!More

A family of six searched for a fine restaurant near King George Street. Sometimes google shows us the way. In this case our eyes did the job. Well frequented, younger and older guests and a table for six adults offered by the friendly young ladies....The atmosphere very comfortable. For us hungry people the dishes were served just in time. Not too long waiting, not too quick on the table. Just perfect. We have chosen Allen‘s homemade sausages with mashed potatos, Yehoshua‘s Burger, rice and shrimps, cheddar rose gnocchi, tomate radiator vegetables and the chicken breast. All dishes very yummy. So all in all as many points as possible. And we would come again!More

One of the last standing non kosher restaurants left in the city, this gem is a dying breed and deserves much respect for its delicious food and IPA beer on tap. This is a perfect spot for dinner bar atmosphere and Jerusalem as I remember...it from the 90s cosy, friendly and filled with life and versatility.More

Just like the Upper West Side...pleasant, affordable, low stress, good familiar appetizers and plates, a basic assortment of wines, and good, friendly service. We were tired after a day of touring and found this place by searching on Google - it’s just a few minutes...walk from the big hotels on the top of the hill. Highly recommended for hanging out and talking - and the food is actually quite good.More
