This place has an incredible view of the Mount of Olives and you can also see the Dome of the Rock, plus spy on the ever-changing crowd in the square below. You can sit outside or inside which is nice when it's sunny. The fixed-price meal is a bit pricey but worth it, well seasoned salmon, lovely side salads and... More

The restaurant was a bit crowded (not surprising, considering it was around Christmas), but the food was good, the service was speedy, and it had a nice view of the rest of the Old City.

Our only meal in Jerusalem, our tour guide insisted we come here and later admitted it was a bad choice when she learned how much we spent. It is generic cafeteria food, and while it is filling and nothing is bad, nothing is especially good or flavorful either. The main issue we had is that while the food is presented... More

Despite the number of customers and limited space, the staff remained super friendly to us at all times. The food itself was simple and good. Would go back.

The food is fresh and good! The service is great and I would recommend. It is close to the western wall in the old city.

I'm shocked at all the wonderful reviews. Even another person in a Facebook group recommended this place & my experience wasn't even close to being 5 stars. First off there's lots of stairs so if you can't climb, beware. Second, the staff was nice. Third, the food was mediocre. Even my son who isn't as picky as I am about... More

We were visiting this portion of Jerusalem and it was time for lunch. We climbed the stairs and found this excellent restaurant at the top. The salmon was superb. Great view and pleasant service.
