First visit here. Beautiful view. Every plate from the salad to the slow cooked lamb to the marzipan desert was cooked with love and served with style. You almost feel like you're in someone's home for lunch. A super charming experience.

I was very disappointed. We payed a lot of money for blend food, the children meal was tiny, like all other dishes. I hate cheap places, and this is one of the cheapest.

This is the place to visit in the judean mountains for arab food with a twist. You will not find hummus and skewers but various cooked or stuffed meat and fish dishes. And their cnaffeh is superb. Service is sometimes problematic in the sense that it is packed on weekends and waiters run around trying to catch up with orders... More

Although I went there with a group of friends, I think it’d be a good place to go with your couple in a warm summer day and enjoy a splendid lunch or dinner in their terrace. A very nice place, good ambient and delicious food for a reasonable price. The Shishbarack was a little short for a main course, but... More

We ordered a bean soup, stuffed cabbage and herb tea. The beans were ok, but there was no soup, just boiled beans. The cabbage rolls were bland and floated in oil. The herb tea was tasteless. Disappointing.

This is a wonderful restaurant with limited days open. Make sure you have an appointment before you drive there. It is definitely worth the effort. A delightful couple who love what they do and it shows in their cooking.I had a wonderful salad with endive and arugula with a honey and lemon sauce. Then I had a whole fish with... More

Despite its bucolic location and warm, eclectic design, Majda offers a surprisingly refined version for the Arab cuisine. In the plate you can find flavors from Italy, the Maghreb, Jerusalem and even Tel Aviv. All combined into harmonious and satisfying dishes We lunched with a relatively large group and couldn't find a dish which we didn't love. Note that dishes... More
