Came here for dinner. Dinner was tasty and fresh. Had a salad and ceviche and was not disappointed. Live music is a plus and the decor is super cute.

We enjoyed Barood almost as much for the festive atmosphere and fun clientele as we did for the good food and drink. The service was excellent as well...you can't help but be entertained by a meal here.

Great place with very good service. We only had a fantastic local beer and dessert and they were excellent. It does not come really cheap, but overall everything was great.

A very cozy place in a patio off Jaffa street. Delicious plates e.g. shepherd's pie, fried aubergines or the sepharadite speciality Pastelikos. Good local or imported wines. Divine sweets, e.g. halva parfait or chocolate cake with ice-cream and reasonable prices. Don't miss this place!!!

I never leave Jerusalem without having a dinner at the Barood! The food is tasty, inspiringly well spiced,a place where you constantly taste a fresh and reinvented menu! But I can always count on the nicely prepared seviche!
