This is a great place to escape the noise and congestion of the old city. Food was very good and prices reasonable. Service was attentive but not rushed. We suggest the lamb or chicken skewers which came with tasty french fries and a nice salad. The patio is cool quiet and comfortable. Restrooms were clean as well which is not a given. We will return when we are here again!

“Atmosphere - what atmosphere?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

We went to this restaurant because it was rated number 2 out of 434 restaurants in Jerusalem on Trip Advisor. It was a Wednesday evening in mid March. We booked for 7:30. When we arrived this quite large restaurant had just two tables occupied. One couple left and another arrived just as we were leaving at about 8:30. On our way out we found another couple having a drink at the bar.
Perhaps this restaurant has a better atmosphere on nice summer evenings when you can eat at the outside tables next to the city wall.
The food was well prepared and in good quantities but the menu seemed a little uninspiring.
