My wife and I thought this place was great. We had prompt service and the food was really good. I would suggest that you have your hotel make a reservation just in case they are packed ( not necessary though). I had a steak sandwich and my wife had some ravioli and both were great. The desserts are tasty. It's a good place to just relax and unwind from touring the city. The environment is casual like most places in Jerusalem so just go there as you are. I hope this helps.

This restaurant was recommended by our Hotel's concierge. Out of our 7 nights lodging, we ate hear 4 nights. The food selection was varied, was very good and quite reasonably priced. The only negative is that the main level seating is cramped.

Whenever we come to Jerusalem, we have to make time to come to this restaurant. Hot chicken and avacado salad amazing. Plus their pizza breads are unique. I love this place.

It was really a great place, one of the best i've ever found. Food is tasty - we tried about ten dishes during our stay in Jerusalem, everyone was great. Music is nice, and together with voices of happily chatting and laughing people creates festival atmospere.
There were always lots of people inside, and we got like one of two or three free tables left.
It works on shabbat.
They say on foursquare that service is horribly slow, but it was ok for us.
Meals are very filling, so twice I ordered more than could eat, and leftovers were a good breakfast the day after.
I found Weihenstephan beer here, and now it's my favorite beer.
Also it's quite cheap place for Jerusalem. We tried some doleful chinese restraunt, and it happened to be more expensive.

Great ambience, good food, good service. Our children loved the pizza and we returned on two occasions. It was during Passover, so we did not have that many choices. The salads were very fresh. Worth a try.
