“Great breakfasts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Ate here twice during a recent visit. The first time with old friends from New York who now live in Israel, the second time with my wife and daughter. The food is excellent, and well prepared. Pretty fast service and we were never rushed, despite a long 2 hour breakfast on our first visit. Prices are very reasonable but not cheap, a good value for sure. As with many places in Israel, the staff are very child (and pet) friendly.

“WHAT A GREAT BARTENDER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

Seldom do you encounter a bartender that is as professional as Saar. He not only knows how to make a great cocktail but is well equipped to partake in the usual bar conversations. 5 Stars

“Fabulous Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

This is the very best restaurant in Jerusalem. The food is above excellent. The service is extraordinary. The waitresses and the lady in charge spoke English. They were very helpful in my selecting dessert. All the magnificent pastries displayed in their refrigerated showcase was explained to me in detail. All three of us agreed as to what a wonderful experience this was.
I hope this review is shown to the management of the restaurant.

“Nice place with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

You can have your dinner outside, which is not that common in Jerusalem. Menu is not very big, but everything we've had tasted very fresh and good. They have lots of sweet deserts. The house wine, a cabernet, is very good too. Overall a positive experience. We've been there several times over the last couple of years and don't recognize the complaints about the service: they have a young and friendly staff.

“Decent food, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Got a sandwich named something along the lines of the Green Cutlet, which was delicious. Ordered an alcoholic apple cider which was very delicious: whiskey with cider topped with real slices of apple and a cinnamon stick. Our bartender, Saod (? I think that was his name?), mixed us a few more drinks as well, was generally fantastic, and also really, really good looking.
