Great location on a corner in the trendy German quarter, we recieved a warm welcome, we were a table of 15 walk-in and they were really busy so kudo's to management. This was followed by astonishingly good service and then really average to poor food. All round everyone commented on how poor the cooked meals were - salads were good though - I've seen it's a franchise so maybe the quality varies from store to store - simple, workable concept let down by a poor kitchen.

In this upscale neighborhood we expected to find upscale prices but that was not the case in this organic, dairy restaurant. My sister and I were greeted at the door by two charming waitresses. They were genuinely concerned if we were satisfied, and said they would tell the chef of our satisfaction. We noted that the table tops were immaculately clean, as was the entire establishment. We were handed a menu for the business lunches (39 shekels and up) and an a la carte menu. We chose the least expensive business lunch. It came with a choice of orange juice, grapefruit juice, special breads, etc. I ordered the orange juice, which tasted like fresh-squeezed oranges. Then came a choice of first courses. The sweet potato soup was far superior to my own, and I make a terrific sweet potatoe soup. The fresh dill gave it a perfect zing. The color was exactly the shade of sweet potatoe. For the main course I chose the fettichini. From the various sauces, I ordered pesto. The fettichini was cooked to perfection. The sauce was dotted with freshly ground garlic. Absolutely lip-smacking. The entire meal left us smiling and satisfied. Can't wait to return.
