“Good Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

I liked the food at Mona, the atmosphere was really cool and the waitresses were cute. Everyone in the restaurant was happy and willing to help. They spoke good english and it was a good option for someone who does not eat kosher! I would particularly suggest a seafood dish.

“Worth experiencing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

The restaurant is located in the design college which gives a special vibe. They have a good wine selection, the entrees were very good especially the Polenta which was the best out of all of the dishes that we ate, the others were tasty and lived up to our expectations.

“Excellent service,very good wine but the food was ok not excellent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

This is an expensive restaurant and it shows with the staff,atmosphere and wines. The food however was not outstanding. The tuna tartare was too acidic, and too salty, the asparagus also lacked balance in the sauce. The hamburger was a bit dry and served on a flat dish so it was impossible to eat tidily. The food was not bad just needed some fine tuning. The dessert however was delicious and looked lovely
We had a nice evening but at this price level you expect better
The service however was faultless

“good but expensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

mid summer in Jerusalem and good reason made us to make a reservation at this restaurant. I knew that is related with another one very well and very good vallued spot called mahneyehuda so that was the reason to go there. reservation is a must as is quite crowdy. we have decided for starter a goose tartar for 2. was good.
then my wife have had a bar/sea bass with vegetables and a v. very good smashed potatoes. I decided for a special antricote steak, well done- I like it in this way- it comes with the best frittes I have had lately! what great and a huge portion of steak! you can have also sea food but this I decided to let it for another time
bottom line: very interesting mediteranian- french cuisine adapted to the local conditions=no sea close and so on!
the wine was good but expensive, a french 1/3 botlle 130 Shekes! ohoho! why?
ask Yayr lapid!
but for a good time is WORTH the money , the time and what comes with it!
special remarks for the service, even was full of people, was attentive good
great job

“One of the best restaurant in Israel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

We were there for my son's birthday 7 people a month ago. The service was very professional -which is not obvious in Israel-and friendly. The atmosphere is very 'Jerusalem style', in the positive sense. It is central, actually in the old Betzalel building of architechture and next to it.

Non kosher food of course on a Saturday...The tartare was perfect, the fois gras incredible and everything was special, delicate and just perfect.

Not cheap, I admit... we paid 1400 shekels for 7 people, incl. 2 bottles of wine. But it is worth every shekel.
