Atmosphere, service and food are amazing. A must for Jerusalem travelers. Thursday's they have two percussionists playing that really rock the house. The whole restaurant is dancing.

Georgian Cuisine like You've Never Tasted Racha Restaurant is located at Hahavatzelet St. in the heart of Jerusalem, in a building dated from the time of the British mandate in Israel.The inspiration for the restaurant's name, Racha, comes from a breathtaking region in Georgia, where the restaurant owners were born.Racha is a Georgian restaurant, offering a unique culinary and ethnic experience, from the interior design to the hosts and chef who were born in Racha.An ancient legend tells, "When G-d divided the earth into the nations of the world, the Georgians were too busy eating and drinking, and arrived too late. They invited G-d to join them and so He gave them the land He had been saving for Himself".The restaurant proudly continues the Georgian tradition of plenty and infinite hospitality.On the premises are two luxurious bars, one for smoking, serving authentic Georgian tapas to satisfy every palate.We invite you to be part of this extraordinary experience combining fine food and sumptuous drink.The restaurant holds events with up to 100 guests.Owner name : Lily , Traditional Georgian Cuisine
