“Very special place”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We celebrated my birthday there yesterday, party of five Israelis. We got a table with a perfect view of the old city. The dishes were great without exception .The Acorn squash was particularly interesting. The service was also excellent.
Prices are intermediate.

“Very nice vegetarian restaurant”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

This restaurant is overlooks the Old City and is right near the King David and other hotels in the area. I enjoyed a great dinner with a beautiful salad and some fresh vegetable juice. The waitress was pleasant and the view was very good.

It's in a community center building. I wouldn't say it's inexpensive, but it's a very good place for a relatively high end vegetarian meal.

I would definitely return

“Good chocolate and carrot cake”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

We went for a large group lunch.

The food we got was a platter of several different dishes, don't remember exactly what they were.
The pasta (NIS 50 around) was mediocre. The baba-ganoush, smoked eggplant dish was excellent, as was the mixed salad, although that is difficult to mess up.

The highlight was the rich and unique chocolate cake which possessed flavors I have not encountered in cake before. Exotic, undecipherable stuff. The carrot cake was good but still lost out by a slim margin.

Avoid the strawberry cake, according to others.

Nice view, nice neighbourhood.

“Awful, verging on disgusting”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

Really disappointing. We read rave reviews about the veg cooking here - it was dismal, tasteless and bad value. There was one waitress and lunch took ages. We saw pictures of a 'terrace' that wasn't there and it's in a soulless cultural arts centre. Miss!

“Great Vegetarian Food and Great View of Old City”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Te'enim is located just opposite the City of David and is a charming venue with character. The food was fresh and quite tasty. Not for carnivores!
