“wonderful lamb chops”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

I had dinner and lunch there with my family. The outdoor setting is wonderful! I loved the lamb chops: best I had in my week long trip to Israel . The service was very slow at dinner, better at lunch. I raccomand it if you want to have very tasty lamb in a fantastic outdoor setting.

“Not as expected”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

We went there because of the good reviews in Tripadvisor. I completely disagree with them. The food was just acceptable, less tasty and less reach for variety and amount with respect to other places where I have eaten these days in Jerusalem, moreover being overpriced with respect to them. Also the presentation was quite modest.
