This place is fantastic. You'll need a reservation on Fridays and Saturdays. This is a non-Kosher paradise of meat and cheese. While many restaurants are limited to nasty potato bread during the Passover... no worries people! Focaccia is still a yeast-bread lover's Shangri-La!

Split the Focaccia bread with sundried tomatoes and goat cheese and get a fantastic steak sandwich!

Nice place, good prices, meals are huge (too much, but that's fine), food is OK, lacks a bit an atmosphere and more delicate meals, but overall a good place to stop and refill the batteries.

Our group of eight arrived on a Thursday night about 6:00 PM without reservations and we were promptly seated with no fuss. However, by 8:00 PM the place was packed, so reservations later in the evening would probably be a good idea. The menu selections are quite diverse (from soups, sandwiches, focaccia, to burgers and much much more) and they have a very nice wine selection as well. The portions are huge. One focaccia was more than my wife and I could eat! We ordered the potato, pesto, and cheese focaccia and it was absolutely delicious. We're definitely going back...and soon!

On our first night in Jerusalem, we dined at this bistro type restaurant. on the recommendation of our guide. We were not disappointed. We had reservations which were promptly honoured. The table we were seated at was not to our liking, so we opted to sit at the bar. Good decision. The bar staff treated us handsomely, and even provided us with comped after dinner drinks.
Salads were excellent. My main course was not excellent, but very good.. Most of the patrons were Israeli, and the place was packed. So, it was quite noisy, but with a good buzz.

I'm pretty much a regular customer of this pace for several reasons. First, the food is pretty good and the dishes are really big. Second, the prices are quite cheap and compared to the size of the dishes- they're REALLY cheaper. Third, the atmosphere and service are excellent and make you feel like you don't wanna go. In a city like Jerusalem, where one doesn't have many options when it comes to restaurants (especially on Saturday), this place is a blessing.
