Good choices of restaurants for all budgets. Had pizza one night and Mexican food another night. Nice break from Pita and Hummus which we also came to like.

Great street to walk and shop. Wonderful places to eat or just sit down and have a coffee. This place is very lively especially at night. Definitely don’t miss this street while on your vacation.

This pedestrian street is always bustling, always fun. I love the grand piano where anyone can entertain the crowd, and the I 💌Jerusalem sign.

Ben Yehuda is full of shops to buy tacky souvenirs, to judaica, to delicious food. It’s best to go on Saturday nights after the Sabbath when shops are open late, and the street becomes a hub for a release of post-Shabbat energy.

WIth art installments, music and street entertainment, shops and food of all types - all with only pedestrian traffic (generally) and with an ambience of its own. We take that route whenever possible.

yes it is pricey and a tourist spot, but great for food, people watching and running into people you might know!

Although many of the shops are closed during the Sabbath, the Street itself remains open to walk through. The Sabbath finishing time is usually notified in the press and locally - shops begin to open some time later.
