Our tour group wound up our trip to Israel with dinner here. The food was delicious, from the salads to the desert. Service was excellent!

Excellent restaurant, but full dinner is pricey. As with most placed, food quantity is plentiful and delicious. Had the chicken livers, soup and salad. Ate the leftover half of livers today.

The atmosphere is average but the food is sensational. Share the salads - huge and delicious. Excellent fish and veggy dishes. Had the best chicken shnitzel ever (not dried out like it usually comes).

This restaurant is located in a neighborhood restaurant row close to a few hotels. It has a nice patio and a pleasant dinning room. We dined with a large group of friends. The food was average. We had some starters and salads. The main course was meat and fish family style and pasta and roasted potatoes. Meat was - barbecued... More

My wife and I had fish entrees and both were excellent. The service was very good and the atmosphere was pleasant. The customers were a mix of locals and tourists.

Delicious meal served by hospitable and attentive staff. The kebabs were my absolute favorite meal while in Israel. I even asked the staff to give my compliments to the chef. I definitely recommend you make it a point to enjoy a meal here.

Nice place for seafood. Very close to many hotels and doing a brisk business roughly 50-50 split between tourists and Israelis. Service a bit spotty (it was a full house) but far from awful. The food was really quite good in all respects, prices not at all out of line.

The food was outstanding. We were a party of 7 adults & 5 children and the service was decent. They cooperated by splitting our bill. I ordered a salad that came with the meal instead of before like the soup did. Did I mention that the food was delicious!! Short walk from Inbal Jerusalem Hotel.

I found this place while waiting for friends. I had a very nice lunch of tilapia, salad and bread with dipping "sauces". It was so good, I brought 4 other people with me for dinner that night. I am not much of a fish eater, but the tilapia was so good I had it again, only over linguine or some... More
