Reviewed January 13, 2014

My husband and I visited this restaurant across from our hotel. After a days sightseeing we were hungry and ready for something to eat. The owner beckoned us upstairs to enjoy the rooftop terrace , that is very nice and the view in incredible...
But in hindsight this is only to take your attention away from menus, which were never produced and prices that you don't see. We ordered 2 kebabs... No drinks as we had our water. He tried to charge us 160 shekels ... Which is robbery . He argued with us.. Etc when we complained about the price. My husband eventually gave him 110.... Which is still too much for what we got... A plate full of sauces and vegetables, very little meat. Take my advice... If you are staying across the road in the mount of olives hotel...EAT THERE :)

We arrived in Jerusalem today and went to the cafe opposite the hotel we are staying in. We were hungry and thirsty and the owner charmingly offered us a reasonable meal. Although we asked for a menu and price list this was never produced. The view is good, the meal average but when you come to leave the staff will try to charge you 3 times the price. They argue and yell at you and complain that things in Jersulam are harder and more expensive than where you come from. Eventually we paid the lowest price they said so we could leave. On checking prices at other caves we saw how much they tried to rip us off. Our advice to travellers is don not go there!
