We arrived at the restaurant in the evening, the restaurant is located in the heart of the village lanes and offers a place to sit on the porch or inside. Arab-Palestinian food, very fresh and very high quality. We were alone in the restaurant and enjoyed every minute.

Poor cooking, slow service, no airconditioning in hot weather- not worth the trouble of getting there

We had a highly enjoyable dinner at Majda's. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back. We loved the orchard in which the tables are located, the simple and authentic furniture but especially loved the food. They offer an original twist of known dishes, with a great use of seasonal ingredients. Practically everything we ordered ranged from very good, to amazing.... More

In ein rafa you are in the Jerusalem hills, sitting under a tree and having your repass biblical style. We were there in the relatively early morning (9 am) just about when this restaurant opens. Great pleasure! NB: thos place only open on Fridays and Saturdays

Majda is definitely a special restaurant. This was our second time here and we came back to this charming place full of atmosphere. The menu is limited, but the variety is reasonable and the dishes that we chose were very tasty. Only this time, we were overwhelmed by the prices. I am not sure whether I felt Majda was so... More

LOVED our dinner at this lovely restaurant. Food was absolutely delicious and the experience was awesome. We were a large family group and the service was great. Met the owner who was very friendly. Not the easiest reservation to get as they are only open a few days a week, but it was definitely worth it. One of the best... More

It is located in a village on the hills aside from the main road from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem, but there isn't anything like this place that you can find in these two big cities. I could associate this place with places on the hills of Greece or Provance or maybe Tuscany, Actually, it is a fusion of all of them... More

The restaurant situated in a surrealistic place, on a hill where the car parking is almost a stunt with its small area. Even after getting close the restaurant you cannot even consider what will wait you. After going in you feel something. Something else that you expected. You feel the Europe atmosphere with olive trees and some other kind of... More

We went for dinner to this lovely restaurant owned by a Arabic-Jewish couple in the hills above Jerusalem in Ein Rata. I wish that the owners had been there the night we were there as I have heard from friends how warm and welcoming they are. We loved the appetizers, entrees, and desserts and ordered many small plates. Although we... More
