This is a small place with good service, tasty food and helpful staff. They also have free wi-fi. Falafel and hummus were a little dry, but chili salsa added a flavor.

I've been to this restaurant a couple of times and the experience has always been great. Please try "Costillar de Cordero" (Rack of Lamb) on Sundays!

The lovely picture which I have attached is what enticed us into this restaurant. The meal we were served did not resemble the photo! I love Israeli food and food from the region but this was not it. There was hummus but it was the worst hummus I have ever tasted. There was no tabbouleh, there were no pickled eggplants... More

I was enticed by the sign out front noting vegetarian options and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. The baklava is a MUST and the vegetarian platter with juice and soup was great value at 9,000 peso. Be sure to ask for some chilli salsa to add flavour.

We randomly stumbled across this empty restaurant, what a treat! Tasty food and lovely service! (even if you can't speak Spanish) For two drinks, 1 starter and 2 mains the bill came to 35,000 pesos (£8). Bargin

The food was bland and didn't resemble anything I've eaten in Israel, or in Arab restaurants in the USA. I couldn't even find felafel with hummus on the menu. Prices were fair and portions were large. Service was so-so, considering that I was the only customer.

Went there before October 2011 in my first trips to Bogota. Pricy Middle Eastern "like" food. Very plane taste. Not worth it. Never went back.

Good food. Run by Israeli twins who have moved Bogotá. I always get a good meal here, but it can be a little busy at lunch time.
