This should be one of the premier restaurants in Jerusalem and has been in the past. There is a lovely and elegant atmosphere with very good service, but the quality of the food and its preparation was not up to its usual standard. I was disappointed.

Ate here one night on the recommendation of the concierge at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel and I was not disappointed. The chef is magnificent and his offerings a culinary delight. The wait staff was superb and I highly recommend this restaurant to any visitor to Jerusalem.

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend. For a kosher restaurant, the food was excellent particularly the Tex Mex Ribs & the Fillet Mignon to share. The ribs were tender and the fat melted in your mouth, the sauce was delicious. The fillet, was cooked to perfection and the two sauces complemented the steak perfectly. Overall a very good... More

Went with my wife. Got recommend again from a friend and it was totally great. I eat in many places around the world and this is actually a Michelin grade. The ceaser salats was unique and great the mushroom with drunk pears great and the shateaux briaende (for 2) is perfect. Expensive but with every shekel! GO.

Gabriel was amazing!! We went to celebrate with the family (there were 7 of us) and it was one of the best meals we had the entire time we were in Israel. The service was wonderful and the two waiters who took care of us were superb! One of our waiter's parents were from South Africa and we had a... More

Wonderful ambiance at this fantastic meat restaurant. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. Meal was incredible. The presentation was as beautifully artistic as any fine restaurant around the world. The flavors on the dishes were outstanding. Portion size was quite generous. Two of us shared the chateaubriand and could not finish it. Luckily another of our group was able to assist... More

We were walking in the area heading to a different restaurant and decided to eat here instead as we had heard good things about it. We were not disappointed: We ordered the Plata Rio which is a combination dish for two - includes entrecote steak, filet mignon, chorizo sausage, chicken, and sweetbreads. They were out of the latter and substituted... More
