We've been to this place for 4 nights already and everything we tried is good, but we especially like the hot mushroom salad, chicken fillet and the burger!! Definitely try the hot mushroom salad, it's fantastic!! The atmosphere here is relaxing, and we love their music. The service is definitely one of the best in Jerusalem, Orli (the waitress here)...

Loved this place, it was great evening in Zabu Bar, food was simple and delicious - I ordered Rib eye steak it was jus well made. My husband ordered the fish and chips and it was fresh and tasty as well. It seems like the place is more like a bar because when we left around 10pm it started to... More

This place was recommended to me. Great selection of music. Great selection of drinks! Will try the food next time. On a Friday night, people start trickling in around 9:30 pm. The service made me feel at home. Would def come back and recommend this place to anyone!

I could eat here every night when I'm in Jerusalem. (Actually, the restaurant's name is spelled Zabotinski on the building.) You have three dining options: sidewalk café style al fresco ; outside the main building in an area enclosed with plastic to allow an outdoor feeling in cold weather; and inside. Inside is the bar that features draft beer and... More

Great bar. We came in and immediately felt at home. They even serve cheeseburgers (not easy to find in Jerusalem). Bartender was friendly, the beer was cold and the food was good. Can't ask for much more. Definitely recommend.

We were very satisfied both with the drinks (ask for the local beer) and food (starter, chicken steak with salade and kebab). However, the exceptional part was the cosy music and service of Orli Karta - caring n always ready to help n giving tips about the menu..Come n see!

Thank Johana B
