Tried three times at last got a small seat at the bar. The lovely girls at the bar serve slices of bread in a paper bag with a small bowl of the best tehini I have ever eaten in a restaurant. I chose a Seabass plate which came with vegetables cooked just right. In Jerusalem Mint Tea comes with real mint leaves. For desert Basboussa with Halva ice cream, whipped cream and fruit - real indulgence. Definitely a must when in Jerusalem. Bravo chef Ezra!.

11 is were fortunate to dine at Machneyuda to celebrate my birthday in December 2016 but only after our hotel concierge was able to book a reservation for us, several weeks In advance. The restaurant definitely has a very fun atmosphere and the food was over the top, even better than the reviews! We loved the delicious appetizers, salads, main courses, (a fave for me was the unique chicken liver dish) and we love love loved all of the desserts. The desserts were presented on a very long board down the center of the table. At the end of the meal we were compped with shots of liqueurs...a very nice touch indeed. It is easy to see why Machneyuda is ranked among the top restaurants in all of Israel.

One trip will not be enough to Machane Yehuda! The merchants all beg you to taste their wares. From dried fruit to an amazing cheese selection to mixed spices for rice to tea mixes. And of course the bread, baked goods and candy!! Bring your camera.

You have to book in advance as the restaurant is in high demand. I did the booking through Facebook as through their website didn't work for me. I did the tasting menu and sit at the bar near to the kitchen: best spot :) Good stuff, great food and deserts, shots of Arak kept coming and the Chef and personal cheer and drink with us. Highly recommended! Enjoy and L'chaim!
