Located across the street from the King David Hotel inside a beautiful and historic building. The restaurant has an out door patio. The menu is diverse, with local choices like meat filled pita and houmus. There was also stuffed zuchinni and roasted eggplant with tahina. Everthing was delicious and the prices are moderate.

We were skeptical about dining here however it was Shabbat and we had very few choices. I noticed most of the bad reviews were from 2015 and hoped they had a new management. We were incredibly surprised! Other than the criticism of it being A little above normal pricing but well within the $$$-$$$$, We feel the previous negative reviews... More

YMCA restaurant is a nice place to seat at, having unique atmosphere by the building and the architecture. The dishes were good, large and tasty. service was bit slowly since it was a very busy evening (before a concert in YMCA hall) but fine after all. Suits for kids and families since it's wide enough. We had a good time... More

I spent an afternoon here, catching up on work (free WiFi - great!) The food menu was very tempting - I could easily have ordered everything on it - the food ranged from simple, hearty dishes, to more gourmet. I really would recommend it here, the staff were pleasant and attentive, and I felt very relaxed here, even though I... More

We stayed in the hotel and had lunch once in the Archibald. Medium food, less than reasonable service. Prices are not cheap. The best thing is the space and the arches.

We arrived late in the evening and were able to get in just before the doors closed at 2200. We were only interested in some tea and snacks. The tea was delicious and the baklava was very sweet and tasty. When we went for breakfast, we were astounded by the selection of cold and hot items. While we were eating... More

Having eaten at the YMCA restaurant many times in the past and having good memories of a restaurant with atmosphere and good food, we decided to eat there again. What a disappointment. The restaurant is under new management. The staff although friendly were very unattentive and any request was repeated several times. The food was below average. It will take... More

Set at the YMCA in Jerusalem, this restaurant is worth a visit. It is a bit on the pricy side and the service is reasonable. Tip: catch the elevator to the top of the YMCA tower after your meal... The views are amazing

Seventh trip back to Jerusalem and second staying at three arches which is in a great location just across from the king david at a fraction of the cost. Rooms are basic but clean. Breakfast is nice and you can sit in the beautiful courtyard to eat. Elevator is tiny so we mostly used the stairs. Would stay here again.

We arrived here after being tipped off by a good review in 'Lonely Planet', the problem was the restaurant was probably on 'another planet' It's location was downtown Jerusalem opposite the swanky King Davids Hotel, but sadly the comparisons ended there. According to the restaurant website, food was served up til 1030pm, so we arrived at 920pm only to be... More
