Our group of 34 pilgrims stopped for lunch on our way to the Church of the Holy Selpulchre. Despite the size of our group, the food and service were fantastic. Loved the fresh lemonade and three kinds of skewers.

I had half a chicken & chips served at the table for 40 shekels. Additional were 2 x bread buns (flat round) and 4 salad extras. The meal was well prepared, the chicken well spiced and tender, the chips (fries) crispy and properly fried with hardly any oil. Needless to say - there was no way I could finish that... More

Good price, good food and good service! The waiters are very attentive and supportive and they are from the same family! Definitely it's for me the best restaurant in Old City!

Yeah, I would say the restaurant was quite good. Not that I would give the whole five stars, but not even close for one star either. However, I liked both the food and service.

You must stop here on any visit to Jerusalem! Been coming here once a year for about 8 years and it's always fantastic. Great food, simple atmosphere, revamped in the last year, great hospitality, a real treasure.
