This is a truly unique experience and not to be missed. Hila is one-of-a-kind, and every aspect of being at Spoons is infused with her enthusiasm and warmth. The setting is breathtaking, the food delicious, and the overall atmosphere just enchanting. A great way to treat yourself!

“Best food ever!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

One of the best meals we have ever had. And it's Kosher! Hila, chef & owner, sets the stage for a convivial atmosphere that ensures a dining experience like no other. This is not just a restaurant, it is also her home, making for a truly unique and intimate setting. Hila caters to groups of 6 up to about groups of 30. I don't believe there is a website but for more information or to reserve (in advance) contact Hila at spoons@netvision.net.il

“Fabulous food, spectacular setting”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

This was the best meal we had in Israel. The setting is a beautiful community of restored ancient homes of Jerusalem stone. We had delicious hors d'oeuvres on the terrace while gazing at the illuminated walls of the Old City. The inside was beautifully furnished; we were having dinner in an elegant private home, with a warm & most gracious hostess: Hila Solomon. The food was absolutely delicious; everything fresh from the market. It was continental cuisine with the subtle flavors of the Middle East; a true gourmet experience. The carefully chosen Israeli wine was excellent. The fragrance of jasmin from the back garden contributed to the sensual pleasures of the evening.
All in all, it was an extraordinary experience.

“The Best Kept Secret in Israel”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

This private restaurant is the best restaurant I have ever had the pleasure of eating in. Kosher or not. I had the pleasure of hosting a business dinner at Spoons. The atmosphere, the food, the staff were impeccable. Hila Solomon the hostess and chef provides an atmosphere which is welcoming, relaxing and memorable.
