Came for lunch seven people the place is nice the food is ok not more not less the biggest problem is the service ! Very low graded service. Pizza came cold and we sent it to warm it up. I'm sure that you can find better places Not cheap approx 30$ per person no wine. No Deserts ....

For 50 years I have often been to this restaurant and never received such treatment before. We were told that our reservation was from 6.30 to 8.30. The service was slow. At 8.15 after we had been trying to engage the attention of at least one of the waiters the woman in charge told us that we had to leave... More

This place goes for rustic European-style cuisine - and they are good at it. They could have probably caramelized onions for the onion soup more, and stuffed mushroom lost some of their shine with batter but the steak was perfect! Cream sauce was excellent - with a nice pepper bite. One thing - they did not have to rush dishes... More

Off the main drag in Ein Karem there's a very pretty restaurant that doesn't specialize in Humus and salads. Weird, right? This is a place where adults can meet and have a great meal (I had the St. Peter's fish that was outstanding...and have the mashed potatoes). We went early so the parking was no problem.

We got there on a cold Shabbat, sat outside, ordered hot beef stew, homemade bread, focaccia, and all was very very good. Great scenery, nice calm atmosphere. Recommended.

Came alone to read a book and have some supper. The restaurant was about 1/3 full. It's very spacious, clean and pleasantly designed, the staff were just friendly enough, bolognese and side salad arrived very promptly and were very tasty. Prices are reasonable, atmosphere very indifferent. The only thing was, after I'd asked for the bill the waiter suddenly came... More

We came here for dinner. The service is really below par, we ordered 2 main dishes, one came 15 minutes before the other. The wine was spoiled, we got a different glass. They gave us a check without even asking for it (and without having being offered dessert). Will not come again.

Our group of about 50 (!!) had a party here. It was dinner time. We were given a pre-planned menu and everything was delicious. We had a flat pizza type bread baked in their brick oven, drizzled with olive oil and Israeli spices (za'atar, to be precise). We were given two delicious green salads for each table, one a typical... More

We sat for breakfast, ordered a salad and coffee and asked for cold water. Salad arrived, no water or coffee. We had to remind the waiter more than once to get our coffee. Never got the homemade bread that was supposed to be part of the salad.
