I tried to get a reservation at this restaurant a few days ago, but it was completely booked up. To my surprise, our gate one tour had an optional dinner and light show. The dinner was upstairs at the eucalyptus. I describe dinner as a tasting dinner that offered anti-pastas, fresh bread, a ground meat and vegetable dish, and a... More

My wife and I visited the Eucalyptus during Passover week. We are Christian, and had a few bad experiences around town with finding food that suited our tastes as many restaurants had very limited menus due to dietary restrictions associated with Passover. The Eucalyptus provided us +/- 15 course tasting menu that was Fantastic. Honestly, having this as one of... More

This is the second time the family ate there. All agree it was the best in Israel each time. We chose the 15 item tasting menu. Every single item was terrific. Lamb, chicken, beef, figs stuffed with chicken. You can also choose single items.

Chef Moshe Basson's adherence to the slow food movement and use of fresh local ingredients created one of the five very best dining experiences we have ever had--and that includes at least three Michelin-starred establishments. All this in a charming old stone building in Jerusalem's Artist Colony (Hutzot HaYotzer) very near the Old City's Jaffa Gate. We chose the smallest... More

Our second year visiting this outstanding restaurant and we were not disappointed. Excellent and informative service; wonderful Israeli boutique wines, and outstanding cuisine, both the tasting menu and the individual dishes in every course if chosen separately. The chef comes round and talks about his work and his ingredients.

We had some really great food while in Israel, but I must say The Eucalyptus was at the top. I'm not a bread eater, but I couldn't stop once I tasted theirs. I wish they would put out a cookbook, I would buy a copy for all my friends. Fantastic food. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. An all around winner.
