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.

A great place in the lovely Ein Karem. Food is great, inexpensive , and massive portions. We ordered two starters, and two mains, and for the first time in my life the waiter goes "...that's too much food". !!! Not a fancy place. Would recommend to others. If you're visiting Jerusalem, I definitely recommend coming to Ein Karem and waking... More

Ordered the warm chicken breast salad, chicken lever pate and fungi spaghetti. Our preference was in that order. Service was a bit slow.

I celebrated my birthday in this restaurant. This is not my first visit and certainly not the last one! The waiters are fast and very friendly and helpful, the menu is offered in a few languages. The food is varied and tasty. They boast their goulash which is not worse than the actual one you can get in Hungary. The... More
