Every so often on our two week trip to Israel we needed a break from (delicious) Middle Eastern food, and this place fit the bill. We sat in the lovely open air courtyard and had some nice pastas and what they call "focaccia" - really more like pizza. The place was almost entirely filled with locals and the service was... More

We were 8 people, but had made a reservation, so we had a table in the rear of the restaurant. It took awhile for the server to take our orders, but then the food cam out very fast. Most of our group had salads or pastas. I had the fried calamari appetizer and it was enough for dinner. It was... More

The service is somewhat sluggish but overall the food was fresh and the prices are convenient. A nice place to be in.

We walked around the area of Jaffa Road, Ben Yehuda Street and Hillel St. looking for a restaurant when we stumbled across a very packed Foccacia Bar. Great atmosphere, quite a varied menu, lots of great salads, and more than ample portions on our plates; on each of our four visits we struggled to clear our plates. I think the... More

The service was not the best and it was quite expensive. But the food was amazingly good! The Seafood Pasta and the Calamari were excellent and the Focaccia bread was amazing. I would recommend to anyone to eat there. It was well worth the time and the atmosphere was great. They could lower the prices a little to help accommodate... More

We ate here last summer and had such a great experience that we wanted to eat here again. However, this time the service was not so nice. Our waitress kept us waiting for a really long time as she was busy talking to her colleague and when she showed us to our table she did so in a vary “couldn’t... More

This is my very favorite restaurant in Jerusalem. I have never been disappointed with anything I have ordered. I love all the focaccias. The servings are huge, so be prepared to share with another or takeaway to enjoy later. My favorite dish is the Avocado Salad with chicken. I also like the stir-fry vegetables with chicken.

We went here on our first night in Jerusalem on the eve of Shavuot, so there was not a huge number of places open and a lot of people were eating here. It was a little hard getting service, but once we ordered, food came quickly and it was very good. We ordered one focaccia with roasted eggplant, and it... More

A really fun place. We were a group of six that went out for after Shabbat dinner. It's a non Kosher restaurant and the menu variety is very nice. The calamari was outstanding as was the seafood pasta dish. Real Dairy Desserts !! Yum Yum
