Barood is located in a nineteenth century house in central Jerusalem. Finding it requires some skill, but it's worth it. The interior consists of all kinds of antiques and memorabilia. The food includes standard dishes like steaks, shrimps, fish etc. As well as traditional Jerusalem-Sepharadi dishes. The food is good, "comforting" and rather-reasonably priced. The variety of alcohol and the... More

Tried this restaurant (following reviews by TripAdvisor) last week. Excellent experience, well recommended. A small but very cosy warm restaurant. Personnel and owner are very friendly. Server guided us with our choice which was excellent - portions were good, and the food tasty. We enjoyed the evening there. At the end of evening, we met the owner Daniela, who also... More

Good atmosphere in a very nice place in downtown Jerusalem. Personnel is very friendlly but do not expect the traditional middle east food. Recipes are taken from other traditional cuisines, so you can even have "stufado" beef and cheesecakes. Beers are very good (local beers) and they also serve wines. Not bad but a bit too expensive.

One must know of the place and exactly where it is - if one ever wants to get there. Barood, in the very heart of Jerusalem - 31 Jaffa Street, Feingold Court -is a warm, homey, absolutely different Bar and Restaurant. It offers special home made dishes in a fantastic hidden spot in the busiest part of the city. It... More

This is a small place, in general you will find place for 1 or 2 persons but, if you intend to arrive with a group, you would need to reserve the places beforehand. Once there, it is such a good experience! The place is decorated in a very warm, nostalgic place, you suddenly may remember all the collections that you... More

We had a wonderful late lunch at Barood Restaurant near the Russian Compound during Shabbot. The food was very good , the beer cold and very good service. If you are visiting and are looking for a fun , quiet outdoor restaurant, this is your place....

We found the place just walking up this one alley, passing Mantra. It seemed nice, cozy, out of the way. It was! But, i have to say that the food was only ok (2 portions falafel-each had 4 balls; 1 arab salad, 1 main dish; 1 eggplant with yogurt. it came with a basket of bread; 2 tiny desserts). They... More

Great atmosphere, location, and food. We stopped in after a long day exploring old city. Loved the decor, our server was informative and helped guide our choices. My husband said the spareribs he ordered were excellent. Both eggplant and fried cauliflower we ordered as starters were also delicious . Great experience overall....
