We had dinner here with our (vegan) daughter on a Friday evening. The restaurant was still half-full when we arrived at 7, but was packed by the time we finished, so definitely make reservations. This place has a great atmosphere, set in a typical Jerusalem courtyard and with Bohemian decor. The menu is good, prices are fair, and everything we... More

Having been trailing through the streets of Jerusalem on a Friday night in full expectation that we weren't going to find a place to eat dinner and then coming across Barood probably helps contribute to how much we enjoyed this cosy little restaurant but honestly, regardless of that, it's just a delightfully atmospheric place for a meal. Everything, from the... More

As the streets started to empty on Friday afternoon it was a great treat to stumble upon Barood. Very nice atmosphere, friendly service. We loved the herring appetizer so much that we ordered two. Great wine

We were a couple with our son and his wife for dinner. It is worth looking for this place hidden in a typical Jerusalem alley. The atmosphere in Barood only exists in Jerusalem. Our daughter-in-law is a vegetarian and we are beefeaters. Everyone found something to his liking. We enjoyed it all, including the music. We will recommend the place... More

Balkan style restaurant. Interesting dishes originating from the Balkans, so if you are into it, you will enjoy various forms of eggplants, leek, moussaka, etc. The décor is nice but the place is a bit tiny. Still, it is worth the visit.

We just had a drink at the bar - good variety of beer and wine (and spirits), very friendly, nice music, cosy and buzzy - a lovely place to hang out. The food looked hearty and interesting too...

Daniela is the best host you can imagine. The food is great. Reccomended to travellers who want to discover some Gerusalem athmosphere out of the schemes.
