Nice place to spend a relaxing and good lunch or dinner. Some of the dishes we ordered were amazing,some other were average. Maybe avoid the pear and ice cream dessert that is not that amazing.

Cozy restaurant with delicious traditional Jewish dishes. Attentive staff. Playing a light Jewish swing. Humus with a warm pita is just a deity. Well, of course, the famous Gefilte Fish.

Great cozy spot is located nearby Lychakov Cemetery. They cook great hummus and falafel. Not that great as it is made in Odessa but still great.

We had a lunch here and were 100% satisfied. The restaurant is in the basement of an old house. It has an atmosphere, enhanced by old books, paintings, etc. We have ordered chicken soup, some Jewish specialities, backed salmon and lamb with egg plants. All...More
