Absolutely delicious moroccon food! We had pulled pork and it just melted in our mouths. :) staff was super friendly and helpful. Portions are very large, so we were easily able to share a Main course and dessert. (2 girls with Medium hunger)

We had dinner at HaMotzi at the suggestion of a friend. The service and food was wonderful. Spicy meatballs with sauerkraut, fried cauliflower, and an eggplant dish. All wonderful. More food than we could eat.

We dined with freinds for lunch at HaMotzi. The lunch deal was fair and the food was tasty and fresh. The service was laconic and not helpful. We asked for gluten free bread and we got a short "no" reply same with our question about desert that GF wasn't availble, the service experience wasn't pleasant.

As usual the service was fast and food tasty. One comment I must make - the heating of the terrace is too much !!! I asked a few times to turn it off - I am still sweating !!! Pity , as it takes away some of the pleasure of eating there !

Good service and tasty food. Perfect after walking around the city in a cold day. Portions were large and ordering just main courses was enough. Dessert options were not that tempting.

We were a group of 12 having diner after a tour in Jerusalem. The starters were great - a huge variety of vegetarian, meat and fish plates. Main courses are fine. Don't skip the surprising deserts.

We had a very nice dinner at Hamotzi restaurant. We happened to pass by, not easy to find if you do not know where to go. Service was very nice, we got good information about the special dishes.

We returned to this restaurant for the fourth time. Other times it was excellent and special. This time was a disappointment: the specials were boring. The service was indifferent. Too bad.

Im a local and I went there for a business lunch. For 65₪ u can get a main, a glass of juice and a small desert. The food is tasty, but u have to love this type of food to fully enjoy. The same goes for sweets.

Thank aliasai
