Incredibly fresh vegetarian food. Fun and creative takes on vegetarian food, using the freshest local vegetables. Gorgeous, airy location with a view of the Old City.

We wanted an intimate place to celebrate a family brunch/luncheon (for about 25 people)....Te'Enim could not have been more perfect! The food, the staff and the setting with views of Jerusalem was wonderful. I am not a vegetarian, but the food was so good and presentation so nice that I never knew what I was missing. I highly recommend this... More

Last night we were at Te'enim with friends, one of them a vegan. We all ordered different dishes, some vegetarian and some vegan: polenta dish, grilled tofu, tofu on rice, tomato soup, the special of the day-portobello mushrooms. ALL of them were excellent. Our waiter was a pleasant and helpful young man. Our vegan in the group loved her tofu... More

The food was superb . We had an organic Greek salad and spanakopita , more delicious than in a Greek restaurant . The tahini was absolutely the best... More

I admit I forgot about Te'enim. It's not the kind of place that you walk past every day - but this made it all the nicer to rediscover yesterday. Beautiful, calm location with Old City view. Great menu fusing European and Middle Eastern tastes (think, labaneh served with za'atar and black bread), some really original options, and a fantastic selection... More

Te'enim Restaurant is housed in a beautiful old building with charm and character. The view towards the Old City is spectacular. Unfortunately, the level of the food did not in any way match the surroundings- except for the desserts.I was there for brunch and we were told as we entered that at such an early time of day there were...

We have visited three times in the last few months, and each time the wait staff, food, view and ambiance have been amazing! We LOVE how the menu has great variety, a daily special is offered, and the vegan food choices are plentiful and so flavorful!

For a satisfying meal in a serene setting with a ravishing view, reserve a table at Te'enim! All dishes are flavored with fresh herbs and are both tasteful and healthy and always freshly prepared. The staff is only too happy to accommodate special orders.

I came here with my parents and the food was incredible. Full of flavor and truly unique dishes. You can tell everything is made with love and care. There are plenty of quality and fresh ingredients used to create these fantastic and unique dishes. For dessert we got their homemade lavender and honey ice cream with a wonderful homemade cake....

we had lunch with friends at Te'enim. A change for me, as this is a vegetarian restaurant. However, lunch was great and the restaurant is across the valley from the old city of Jerusalem, so if you get a window table, the view is great. The food was great as well.
