El Bistro left me wanting something else. The salad was extremely over dressed And pretty skimpy on the lettuce. Maybe it was the dressing but some of the veggies tasted as if they were from a can. The chicken on the salad was tasty but there wasn't much of it.
Service could definitely use a little work.

Good for lunch. Nothing spectacular, but nonetheless, good bistro food. Chalkboard menu which can be translated for you in English by the proprietor. Lots of locals come here as the prices offer good value.

Good and reasonable. We ate at this place a very good meal prepared by a German chef that mixes local food with German recipes. The menu is written in a blackboard with limited but excellent choices. It is a good value.

Went for lunch. The choices were listed on a blackboard and the owner was kind enough to help us with a translation/understanding of the menu. The food was fresh, hot, and very tasty and included soup,salad & main course. All the breads are to die for! Service very prompt and attentive. A delight to find this type of restaurant in the middle of the Old City - very good food at a very good price
