Great service, great food, beautiful scenery over Jerusalem. The restaurant is found on the top floor of Legacy hotel in Jerusalem. Definitely a fancy restaurant, quiet and clean. Food was fantastic, salad, main course and dessert. Highly recommend.

This restaurant located in the Legacy Hotel, is an example of how an expert Chef can make anything possible. The Chef, Johnny Goric, masters the dishes, all come out like pictures, wonderful presentation, interesting fusion touch and an excellent taste. The service was very good, as well as the landscape panorama from the balcony - a great experience.

We enjoyed a few different appetizers, mains and desserts. The appetizers were very good. The mains were excellent. The desserts were not their strong point. Prices are fair for the quality and quantity served. Service was excellent!

Great food, generous portions and close to our hotel. We ate there twice and we also tried the downstaires bar-restaurant, but ordered to go since it is also a smoking bar (water pipes).

We came to this restaurant located in the Legacy hotel not expecting much, having found a dearth of places open in this East Jerusalem location late on a Friday night. In fact even though we were not even staying at the Legacy we returned the following night as the food was so good. There is clearly a talented chef here... More

We dined at this excellent restaurant located on top of the Legacy Hotel. The selection is mostly Palestinian and Middle Eastern. The kitchen is open and you can see the head chef is attentive to all the dishes. The staff was courteous and helpful in our menu selection (assorted appetizers, lamb kufte, and a baked cheese dessert). The area in... More

The food is generally good with a pleasant but low-lit environment. Nice balcony view of Jerusalem. The menu is fairly limited though, but a good combination of seafood, internationalised-Mediterranean dishes. Not cheap.

The Cardo is on the top floor of the Legacy Hotel so you get a good view of Jerusalem looking in the direction of the Mount of Olives. We enjoyed sitting outside under cover -- except when the person next to us smoked and the smoke blew our way. Food is good -- Italian and Lebanese specialties. The restaurant is... More
