The area around the Machane Yehuda market has a number of hip and trendy dining opportunities. We landed at Yudale, pleasantly visible from the streetside bar. The dining guests are grouped in a bar around the cooking station where a young tall female cook is doing wonders. Several diners shared a humongous steak, but we opted for the more economic...

Came here for my boyfriend's birthday a little weary that the service would be condescending or unapproachable but I was proven wrong. The service was truly great, the chef gave us a free shot and wished my boyfriend a happy birthday, they put sparklers on our dessert and overall made us feel special and cared for. The food was divine,... More

At last! A buzzing bar with really good food, (often) great music and a great atmosphere... in Jerusalem! I can't recommend Yudale highly enough - it's great fun and expertly run. Apart from the expert bartender, the food (entertainment provided) is terrific. In fact, having been many times to the owners' other restaurants in Jerusalem and London, Yudale is now... More

Came here without a reservation. I was a party of one and they managed to have space for me..... after some thoughts as to which seat I could have. Wanted to have a drink or two before my meal and felt rushed to order food. When my food arrived it was the wrong order, which is fine, things happen. What... More

On the advice of our tour guide we visited Yudale for a true taste of expertise. Both the food and experience was magical. An amazing spot to spend a last night in Jerusalem. 😊...

Restaurant / bar, sitting at the bar in front of the cooks. Electrifying atmosphere and interesting. The dishes are made in front of you at the kitchen, the most delicious dishes. Recommend polenta. A bit expensive .

Really great cooking and a pleasure to be able to watch the small team creating your dinner. You queue up to get a seat around the kitchen or at the open entrance. Loads of people popping in and out and chatting out the front. Great energy

Went here with a friend during a conference. Without a reservation they still found us a place at the bar. Staff was really super friendly and clearly enthusiastic about their food. And the food really is amazing, having not been in Israel for that long we could recognize these as traditional dishes with surprising twists. The wine was great too.... More
