“Best resturant we have ever been in israel. Period.”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

This place has the most amazing view of the walls of jerusalem. We came to celebrate my gfriend 25th bday and they gave us the best table with the best view. Our waiter was amazing, so kind and full of knowledge about the menu. We were amazed by the level of high quality the food was. Every bite was like heaven. The waiter made us feel like we are his best ever costumers. When we wanted to thank the manager and praise the waiter the manager was so kind he asked what is our occasion. We told him it was a bday and he gave us an amazing cake from the menu for free after the waiter gave us 2 appatisers free of charge. The reaturant is kosher and the food was delicous. 100%. It was the BEST! You will not regret. It was perfect.

“Wonderful food and great view!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Service was fantastic! Very friendly and helpful...as well as knowledgeable! The ambiance is lovely, the panorama is superb...beautiful view of the Old city walls.
I recommend trying their fish dishes as well as their Fondant au chocolat which is out of this world.
You can also go to enjoy the view over a nice drink.
A nice touch in a fantastic 5* hotel.

“Amazing view!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We only sat on the bar for drinks so I can't say anything about the food.
The drinks were good and not very expensive. Food menu seemed a little expensive but not as bad as I expected.
THE VIEW!!! I was born in the old city and lived in Jerusalem my whole life and I was still amazed. What a great panoramic picture on the old city wall!

“This is the Ultimate Rooftop Restaurant: view, food,ambience & service”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

The restaurant is on the roof of the Mamilla Hotel. There is a 180 degree panorama of the walls, towers, churches, mosques and minarets, hotels and office buildings of Jerusalem. All floodlit, with
flags flying. Service is prompt and to the point. Patient waiters explain the fare and each dish offered.
First courses include Meditterranean veggies,some with meat,fish, foie gras. Next, oven baked meats & veggies, some exotic pasta dishes. Meat courses include beef, chicken and lamb dishes,several
superb fish, and the very special Mamilla Hamburger. Drinks: 7 brands of beer, dozens of brands of the stronger stuff. Desserts: Dreamy chocolate with various additions, Baklava (local sweetcakes),&
almond and sorbet creations...A marvellous dining treat. As good on our second visit as on the first.
This is not an inexpensive dinner, but is one that dwells long in one`s happiest travel recollections.
