Just went for the first time and loved it. The rooftop view overlooking the old city is not to be believed. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet but at the same time energetic. Rob and yaguv provided wonderful service and the drinks were delicious. I cant speak for the food, but it did look delicious. All in all, definitely worth a visit next time you're in the area.

We love the setting of this rooftop cafe, overlooking the boulevard below. We had a delicious risotto, fresh and interesting goats cheese salad and refreshing cocktails. Great service (which we haven't experienced too many times this trip) and an altogether lovely meal. Highly recommended for a meal on the way to or from the old city.

Overlooking the beautiful mall, which has every designer store you can think of, we ate at the mall on the bridge. Prices are reasonable and tipping is pretty automatic as many waiters simply do not return with the change. That goes for a lot of places, not just where we ate.
There are several restaurants, kosher, that seat you with a view of the old city that is breathtaking. Well worth the trip. Aside from the splendor, you can literally walk through the gate into the old city. What an experience.

Bought my first pair of sandals in this lifetime. My feet are pretty cool now. I guess that makes me a semi Israeli. When it's brutally hot in NYC I think I will wear them. Don't look.

Sitting behind the Mamilla Hotel and above the Mamilla shopping mall and a block from the Jaffa Gate entrance to the Old City, this is a charming outdoor space with great fresh Israeli style food. The staff was efficient and friendly and very attentive to gluten free.
