I can't imagine how rude were the waiters, refused to let us inside the restaurant claiming that all tables were reserved! after trying to go there many times, i discovered that food was terrible, and service was very bad. I went there couple of years ago, it was amazing, but now, i don't recommend it. The only good thing about... More

The atmosphere... More

This is a great restaurant for lunch or dinner - a literally hidden gem! But certainly worth finding, and many a friendly local will point you in the direction for great ambience and very nice, reasonably priced food.

We were really disappointed with Bait Jabri. When ordering we asked how big the appetiser portions were and the waiter made a size with his hands that showed them to be very small. So we ordered quite a few and the waiter said if it was too many we could return them. When the food arrived, the portions were much... More
