“Paradise in Jerusalem”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Walking through the gorgeous still new Mamilla mall in downtown Jerusalem, one hardly expects to find a restaurant by looking up where nothing can be seen walking along. An unassuming young man sits on a stool where a menu is posted. When one takes a flight of stairs up or the elevator across the way, one arrives in paradise. Beautiful foliage, perfect weather, stylish patio furniture, excellent French chef in the kitchen and lovely young ladies delivering dream service, (need to charge your phones? No problem! Want a little cookie with your macchiato? try 3 of these different kinds. Do you want to linger to enjoy the beauty, the perfection of it all? Stay as long as you like. ENJOY!

“Serenity and Good Food”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

It was the last day of our amazing trip to Israel and we had a bit of time to shop and have lunch. We ate at the Mamilla Cafe. It was quiet and beautiful with herb plants on each table in an artful arrangement. We had a lovely lunch served by a beautiful young woman. Bar Bonch. She was efficient and caring and we left feeling like we made a friend. Than you Bar!
