We went here on a Tuesday night at 6:30 and the place was still rocking. The atmosphere was electric. It's an open kitchen and they play upbeat music which the chefs dance to, it's a unique experience. The loudness of the restaurant is acceptable because it plays into the overall atmosphere. The food is even better than the atmosphere: the oxtail stew is godly. Easily the best restaurant in Jerusalem: a must go if your in the area.
