“Charm & Authenticity!”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

We had lunch in this small cafe off a storybook Jerusalem alley and felt like hip locals. Wonderful dishes based on family recipes and regional ingredients is a must for foodies looking for the real deal in Jerusalem. Be on the lookout for chefs from near and far who've discovered this very special spot.

“Great Food, Great Atmosphere but a Bit Expensive”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Barood, tooked away in a little alley just off Yafo street is full of character, excellent service, and hearty meals like Pork Osso Bucco, Stewed Beef with Chickpeas, and Fish Meatballs, just to name a few. When I had the Stewed Beef, it literally melted in your mouth (highly recommended). Plus it's open on Fridays! The only downside: it's a bit expensive for what it is. Be prepared to pay over 80 sheckels for a dish (~USD$20). Definitely worth going to, though!

“Excellent meal on a Friday night”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We didn't know where to go on a Friday night and searched Trip Advisor and a local guide book. Called for a reservation and was nicely accommodated. Had a terrific meal of osso buco and a delicious Israeli white wine. Finished with a warm semolina coconut cake with honey. The food was authentic, excellent for a very moderate price. Atmosphere is clubby and old bistro, but hip. Check out all the vintage Guiness posters and the stickers and WC plates in the bathroom. A hoot! The restaurant is located in a quiet passageway...a little hard to find, but worth the cab ride to get there.

“Outstanding Service, Delicious Food, Great Hospitality”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Barood is a really fun restaurant in a great area of Jerusalem. Daniella was a gracious hostess and our waitress was incredibly sweet and helpful. After one of the best meals in the city (I had the traditional rice with chicken dish....yummm), we were treated to a spectacular dessert of rice pudding that was out of this world. Delicious! They called a cab for us and made sure we were going in the right direction and walked us to the taxi stand. What a great evening and a perfect ending to a great day in Jerusalem.

“Intimacy and Quality at Barood”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

A really good meal served elegantly at Barood. A crowded room but yet a feeling of intimacy as if we were sitting in a goodl restaurant in one of the capitals of Europe. The quality of the food is impressive and also original dishes. The desserts are made on the premises. Really recommend a visit - you won't be disappointed.
