We were a group of four and the quality of the food was inconsistent. Some dishes were good and some not so: the lamb dish was mostly fat and Shikshukit had a bitter taste. Service was very polite and friendly. Bottom line: doesn't justify the cost and reputation

It was great fun. Our tour company held a scavenger hunt to encourage the use of our Hebrew and get the kids talking to folks in the market. I now have a too great appreciation of coffee halvah!

Love this place! One of the best restaurants in Israel! During lunch they even have 10% off definitely a bit pricy but worth it. The food is delicious and fresh. Try the polenta you won't be disappointed! The fish tartar and octopus also amazing. They had a special lychee cocktail which was absolutely perfect not too sweet and perfect flavor... More

One trip will not be enough to Machane Yehuda! The merchants all beg you to taste their wares. From dried fruit to an amazing cheese selection to mixed spices for rice to tea mixes. And of course the bread, baked goods and candy!! Bring your camera.

You have to book in advance as the restaurant is in high demand. I did the booking through Facebook as through their website didn't work for me. I did the tasting menu and sit at the bar near to the kitchen: best spot :) Good stuff, great food and deserts, shots of Arak kept coming and the Chef and personal... More
