Excellent service with great food and atmosphere. We tried from ceviche and carpaccio for appetizers to great steaks, mussels and gnocchi. Highly recommended.

Great dining experience at this small bohemian-feel restaurant tucked on a side street in Jerusalem (Ma'alot Nakhalat Shiv'a St 4, Jerusalem, Israel). Great attentive service, good fresh fare - seafood, fish, vegetarian, desserts. And very creative delightful Coctails to add to the experience.
