The Ramat Rachel serves the most delicious hummus I’ve ever tasted, accompanied by freshly baked bread and very agreeable white wine. My wife and I enjoyed a buffet lunch in their 900 seat Banquet Hall, and were thoroughly spoilt by the wide choice of freshly-prepared cold salad starters. These were so tasty that I didn’t need a main course, saving space instead for the mouth-watering array of flans and honey-soaked cakes from the dessert table. Yummy yum! The young waiters spoke excellent English, were genuinely friendly and more than happy to replenish our empty wine bottle. This must be a great venue for celebrating a wedding or bar mitzvah!
The Ramat Rachel is a kibbutz of almost 400 people founded back in 1926. It is situated on the outskirts of Jerusalem, near to the border with the West Bank/Bethlehem. They produce their own olives, cherries and other fruits.
