The food is delicious and varied. The owners are wonderful. Service is outstanding and the atmosphere is lovely. Most of the food served is locally grown.

I visited here several times during my stay in Palestine. Great owners, staff, patio. It was always a great place to relax, grab a glass of wine and chill. Thank you! It was much needed!

Lovely cosy cafe & restaurant. The locally sourced food was really great and it had a lovely atmosphere. Has a mix of locals and foreigners, but with a great, relaxed vibe.

Great little oasis in Ramallah. Be sure to double check the prices however, I did get the "bait and switch". Ordered something on the menu and the bill came which had a price which differed from the menu.

A small oasis in a bustling city! Lovely shaded patio/courtyard. "Needing" a burger, I chowed down on their cheeseburger with fries; my son enjoyed his chicken fettuccine. This is an absolutely great place to sit and enjoy a coffee as well! Our taxi driver had to stop and ask directions...so glad we found our way there.Would definitely recommend and perhaps... More
