We had dinner there on a Friday night when many other restaurants are closed or booked in advance. It was a wonderful experience. Sitting outside was perfect. Our waitress was exceptional. The food was good.

Visiting this YMCA was very nice, not only because of the great cause and services it offers to travelers and the community in general, but also because of its beauty and that it has a nice coffee shop overlooking the marvelous gardens!

YMCA is really Jerusalem's best kept secret. Such a great place to see and visit! Good for a day pass for swimmers, for lunch or photo opportunity from the top of its famous tower. Remarkable historical building.

The rental car person suggested the Y for lunch where we had a very good sandwich and salad. Good choice. They also have a tower where you can pay to take the elevator up and get a view of the city form all 4 directions.
