We really liked this restaurant and would recommend highly. The service was very friendly and the restaurant has a low key, cool vibe that we enjoyed. The food was very good, one of our best meals in Jerusalem.

The food at Mona's is undoubtedly very good, but either we picked the wrong items from the menu or the food just isn't all that special. As a starter I had the calamari which were very good and actually the best item we had all evening. The salad my wife had was ok but nothing special. My main course was... More

Great hidden gem in Jerusalem. Amazing food and service. The started with bread and garlic is amazing. The staff is incredibly friendly and nice: they brought us wine while waiting for a table, a complimentary salad and a shot of Israeli liquor. Highly recommended!

Our family--2 kids under 11--had an absolutely delicious meal tonight at Mona. The cuisine is French and everything was prepared to perfection. Our waiter was simply wonderful--a former customer turned waiter since he loved the food and place so much! Lots of younger couples, older couples, friends and groups there tonight. Perfect for families! Highly recommend it.

Mona combines gracious hospitality with well executed food in a lovely setting. Cocktails, wines by the glass, meat and fish dishes and desserts were virtually flawless. The price is similar to what you would expect by North American standards - about US $80.00 for a 3 course meal with drinks and service charge. I highly recommend this fine dining establishment...

It is a good restaurant, among the best in Jerusalem. We had a dinner for 6 on a Friday afternoon so the place was not so crowded.3 of us were children. Starters where fine. We felt the restaurant was a bit stingy on the bread and garlic /olives free starters. They served only one plate a time, with 3 slices... More
