The food was OK, but not more than that. The Service was VERY slow and not so friendly. The prices in the place are very expensive for איק salads and standard main dishes. You expect for the best quality or for a good portion for...More

Free salads if you order a main dish. Salads are good, main dishes are good too. Tarea is not very safe now. If you are staying aroun, go there, if not, don't. :)

We had lunch at the restaurant en route. The place is large, in an impressive stone building. The service was quick. The food was mediocre, nothing special. The lemonade was far too sweet ..

We had a set meal as part of a tour group. Fresh lemonade, bread hot from the oven, salads, barbecued chicken beasts, roast lamb, beef kebab, stuffed chicken roll and dessert. We are too much.

Palestinian Arab food is having a wonderful modern revival. El Babor is still far back in this trend. Good salads but nothing with wow factors. The main course of slow cooked lamb filled with rice - dry, tasteless and expensive.

Group of over 20 from all over. Fresh and tasty salads, good lamb dishes and excellent stuffed lamb. Very efficient service. Recommended for big groups.

Off of a group of 14, 9 hated the food. The bill we got resembled a bill from pricy fancy chef cuisine. Not a simple Mideastern place. 3 hours later - kids have tummy ache along with diarrhea. Really, stay away from this place.
