There are two brothers that own the two Jerusalem Cafes in the 'Couve. The other is the better of the two in terms of food quality...but, take that comment with a pinch of salt. Neither brother will honor the others coupons, advertisements or agreements and seem to play customers off between the two restaurants. More hassle than I want to... More

Great food! Wonderful service. Appetizers, entree and the desert were all delicious! Worth a stop anytime in Vancouver.

The food was good, and the service was good (we were the only ones in the restaurant), but the restaurant needs a good cleaning. The carpet under some of the tables was disgusting, and the walls need to be cleaned in some areas too.

Got the chicken and lamb dish. The favor was outstanding. It was very much like being back in Israel. The appetizers were also really good.

We stopped here on the way to the Portland Airport for lunch and it was great! We had lamb kabobs, salad and rice and hummus and pita bread. Great value and when we are back in Vancouver, will will definitely stop again!

I ate here once last year and the food was decent so I brought my mom yesterday so she could try it. The waitress gave us lunch menus but before she got the chance to take our order, the cook came to our table. 1st thing he did was grab my mom's cheek because she was smiling and told her... More

Was looking for something else when I saw it was Mediterranean it sounded good. The lentil soup had good flavor. I ordered the chicken on humus and would order again. The staff is friendly. Over all good meal.
