Great combination of traditional North African food with the fine tuning touch of a Chef. The dishes are not huge as at many other Chef restaurants but relatively cheaper. The tastes are great , the location is great ,highly recommended.

They serve triditional North African family food. Avi Levi, Israel's Master Chef is the owner. Big dishes filled with good food. Don't expect modern or very exited dishes, but again, very well cooked home made style rich gamily food.

Hi, Wednesday the 18th of what? :-) Just call them, then call again later to confirm the reservation as they're a bit disorganised. Enjoy (even though I didn't particularly).
