This place was great. Their manager Barack Ben Hacoon was great to us. We enjoyed their food and even went back twice in our stay. If you plan to sit, relax and eat you should go there and try the Denisse fish. I enclose some pics

We came upon this outdoor cafe wandering in the way to Yoel Solomon st, around corner from Zion museum. The food was quite delicious and plentiful. I had the lamb kebabs seasoned just right and very juicy. The soups are varied and some with meat dumplings , try the beet kube which was flavorful reminded me of my grandmothers soup.... More

Tried to rip us off by charging twice for our food. And did rip us off by charging more for the 'special' than the same dish was on the menu. Jeez, leaves such a bad-taste and all for an extra few Shekels (and then no tip). What's the point?! It ain't smart; it's just nasty. Please don't bother and just... More

Make your choice simple and Israeli and you will enjoy the food, the atmosphere, and the friendly service. Moroccan fish was cooked just fine, rice too, the fries didnt quite fit in this restauranty style. Israeli boutique wine was a good addition to the repertoire. Recommended but without Micheline-like expectations.
