“Overpriced horrid food”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Like most things in Israel, the food has an abundance of salt in it. But wow does this place lay it on thick. I ordered a mushroom pizza and it was mushroom and mushroom sauce slathered on a focaccia bread with a mountain of salt. You have to be drunk to eat here. Deserts are good and the sandiwches are ok.

“Food was ok, waffles are great, but terrible service!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

While the salads may be tempting for those of us on a diet, I can only recommend the waffles at Waffle Bar. The rest of the food is ok but pretty simple, overpriced, and can be made at home.
The last time i went there, earlier this week, the service at the Beit Lechem branch was terrible! The restaurant is in serious need of some repair since the wallpaper is peeling and lighting is uncomfortable. Despite our reservation for 7 we were given the worst table possible and were screamed at when we tried to think of alternatives. I had to set our table myself and bring water since the waitress didn't do so even 20 minutes after we ordered. With so many options in Jerusalem, go elsewhere unless you are absolutely craving a good waffle.

Reviewed July 26, 2012

Had a wonderful sandwich with a very fresh salad, like most place sin Israel, but this was in a commercial area with few restaurants- nice location for those who didn't bring their own- looked like wonderful drinks too-

Reviewed July 26, 2012

We were with a large party and the restaurant was busy but it sounds like it usually is. 3 meals got forgotten altogether
