Was open on Shabbat. Nice interior of restaurant, restrooms were unclean, dark (literally no lights) and felt unsafe. This is a bar trying to be a restaurant. Our group all voted against returning except one. There were 9 voters.

This was a real disappointment - poor service, tasteless food, high price. "Once in a lifetime experience" - because we will never come back.

We had a very good meal here on a Friday evening, when many restaurants in Jerusalem are closed. Service was very nice, fast and helpful, and we enjoyed our meals very much. Prices are very good, and especially the wine is cheap for Israel. Most...More
