Now hard to find among the apartment highrises, the Ticho House is a part of Old Jerusalem. Others can better describe house, the art, and the story behind it, but suffice it to say, this is how the upper class lived in the nineteenth century.

We went for a weekday lunch, when the restaurant was pretty empty. We had a salad and a sandwich. The salad was delicious, with a very creative and filling array of sliced, diced, and shredded fresh vegetables. Tomato, cucumber, beet root, feta cheese, black olives, yum, yum, yum. The portion was so large, that some was saved for another day. The sandwich was also creative and tasty, with eggplant, mozzarella, tomatoes, and more, pressed and grilled. With a lunch like that, who has room for dessert?

Overall, one of our favorites in Jerusalem.

We tried this restaurant on a Tuesday night because we had read there would be jazz music along with a wine and cheese buffet. It was, indeed, all true. The place is really nice and peculiar, with a kind of artistic "aura". The regular menu does not include many dishes, but they are all quite peculiar and good, the buffet was great with a lot of different and very good types of cheese, at least two hot main dishes (pasta and ravioli), different salads, bread and wine. Whoever chooses the buffet can help him/herself more than once, but they don't allow to share food with other people in the same table (which is correct). The night we were there there were many small groups of Jewish people from abroad (USA, Russia) which underlined the authenticity of the place. Recommended.

An atmosphere condusive to relaxation and very good food. Outside is extremely well kept and inviting and pleasant. The food was above average with agreat variety of dairy dishes to choose from and the service excellent. The small museum is very interesting and the gift shop has many items that are unique to the Ticho House. A pleasant place to have lunch with friends.

A family favorite! They offer a varied dairy menu and will happily adjust dishes according to personal requirements or whims. House in a boutique museum featuring the watercolors of Anna Ticho, it's a beautiful environment and in good weather sitting in the garden is even nicer.
Onion soup in a loaf of bread is a must.

I was there for a birthday party with friends and had a nice evening in a very nice place with really great athmosphere. We had a chocolate cake that was quite good (or even better... :D)
