This historic place is located near the entrance of Jerusalem, a bit hidden - and that's good. We arrived and the place was empty, took a table in the beautiful, historical alley. You may chose from typical and western dishes, as you prefer. But just don't miss the fantastic pomegranate- juice!

Decent sit-down food, close to Jaffa Gate. Friendly staff. Good mixed grill and kebobs. Avoid "American" and "Italian" foods on the menu; they are not what you expect.

Literally up an alley, hidden from most tourists. Well decorated and comfortable. Friendly staff, small outdoor area, decent Israeli wine. Worth the visit

A group of us went for a lunch. We wandered down the street and were amazed by what we found. Very comfortable outside seating and friendly efficient service. The owner was very helpful and service was quick. Good value and good range of quality food. Great place to escape after the busy market streets!

Really bad atmosphere and rude waiter. Got Mad at us for not understanding the menu. He said why don't you read the menu? When we wanted to go away he started yelling at us.
