Great location, ugly food and very bad service. The food is a very low Arabic food. small plates and the Hummus seem like that came from a canned Hummus. and amazingly expensive, The amazing location will bring them many more poor tourists who don't check reviews before entering the tourist trap called Andalus Restaurant.

Among others "typical" Jerusalem Jewish-musulman mix food, the aubergine purée here is amazing. Perfect place for a quick snack with a cold beer and fir a rest I the middle of an intensive day at Jerusalem old city . A little bit expensive ... as others in the area.

We picked this place at random because we needed to sit down and eat. The food was not bad, for a kind-of-greasy-spoon- quick-lunchtime meal. The bathrooms were not clean and there wasn't always toilet paper ( tip: take napkins from the table). The prices were high, more than what we expected. One member of our party complained about the price... More

Horrible. No words for the tasteless food and horrible attention. I have to tell I had a horrible experience once and therefore will do my best to avoid others feel that way. Meals are absolutely overpriced, and prices are supposed to be randomly set by the waiter (and owner?). This is a turist´s trap. They do not take absolutely care... More

Today was our first ever day in Jerusalem and most of it was spent in the Old City. I checked a number of restaurants but none of the menus listed prices, except for Andalus. Our waiter greeted us as soon as we sat down and was very friendly. An eggplant appetizer, 2 chicken shawarmas and soft drinks came to 84... More

We ate at this restaurant because it's very well located, and close to some of the sights in Jerusalem. However, the food was absolutely miserable. I ordered the vegetable soup, which was strictly hot water with vegetable bouillon and some chopped frozen vegetables. The french fries which came with my husband's meal were soggy and damp. This is a place... More

The restaurant is nicely situated in an Old Jerusalem plaza very close to the church of the Holy Sepulchre. We did not suspect anything when the waiter waived at us to have lunch in his restaurant; after all merchants are trying to attract clients in the narrow winding cobbled streets of Old Jerusalem. The food wasn’t flavourful and very little... More
