We attended a function with a large group at Mona. The food was absolutely fantastic! Each plate was exceptional. My favourite dish is the polenta. The staff is really attentive and was very capable of accommodating special dietary requirements. Thanks for an unforgettable night in Jerusalem.

Took a group of twenty people to Mona tonight for a birthday celebration dinner. It just keeps getting better. Roy who managed the kitchen tonight has an unbelievable sense of taste and presentation. Truly an outstanding meal.

Nice atmosphere, good quality of food and good service. I went there around 7pm and the tables were empty but by 7:30pm, all the tables were occupied. Price is high but I think it's worth it.

I regularly go to this restaurant, which I consider one of the finest in town. However last night our dishes were were just too salty, which ruined the fine taste of the quality ingredients. The cooks seemed to have been excessively keen on sprinkling everything with rock salt - which I normally love, but this was really over the top.... More

We almost missed the building but the restaurant is in a courtyard which is stunning. The food is terrific. The lamb ragout was the best. The sea bass special terrific. The cardamom ice cream some of the best I have had

Friends and concierges recommended Mona. Totally underwhelmed. Outside garden is pretty. Menu was boring and similar to every other restaurant. We got asada balls new on the menu. Unremarkable.
