Reviewed 10 March 2022

we like this restaurant very much - it has been one of our regulars but the menu has changed recently and today the lunchtime food on offer was very limited and disappointing. For the main course not much on offer other than hamburgers or schnitzel...- not what I go to a restaurant for. I ended up by having just an appetizer which was tasty and large enough for me as a main course - okay but not nearly as good as the previous options. The service is amazingly good and a pleasant ambiance but not enough choice for sure. The Tuesday evening menu has also changed to a strangely working tasting menu which one can choose a few items of at a high price for a small portion or the whole tasting menu which must be taken by all the diners at the table. NOT USER FRIENDLY . This is all a pity because the changes have put us off frequenting what was a very good place to eatMore

We checked the business lunch menu website the morning of our reservation day and we were happy with our choices for lunch. SURPRISE!! They had a different menu with nothing we liked. There were four of us. As it turns out the appetizers were good....We had Sashimi salad, beet salad and grilled veges. The main dishes were not good. I had fish kebab, one had schnitzel, one had papardelle and my wife had the filet beef. the filet beef was awful and was sent back. The fish kebab was tasteless. Then we had a so called chocolate souffle for dessert which was also not so good. the service was slow considering the fact that there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. The atmosphere was nice and there was no loud music to keep us from our conversation. They took the beef off the bill and offered free coffee to make up for the bad dish. We will not return again.More

Wonderful food! Loved it and only a few minutes walk from the Israel Museum makes for a perfect day. The place was clean, the service was quick and friendly and the prices moderate.
