“great food and a relaxing setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We stopped here for a lunch break. The one down side was they forgot about us after we ordered, the upside was they gave us several complimentary dishes that we did not ask for as an apology. The Israeli salad was very tasty and yhe bread was mana from heaven. It is a little pricey, but food in Jerusalem can be expensive.

The two of us had lunch here and it was a delightful experience. Not only was the salad fresh owned tasty but the waitress (Noah) was so helpful and pleasant. We will return next time we are in Jerusalem.

“Stunning view and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Just went for the first time and loved it. The rooftop view overlooking the old city is not to be believed. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet but at the same time energetic. Rob and yaguv provided wonderful service and the drinks were delicious. I cant speak for the food, but it did look delicious. All in all, definitely worth a visit next time you're in the area.

“So good we came back 3 years later”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

We love the setting of this rooftop cafe, overlooking the boulevard below. We had a delicious risotto, fresh and interesting goats cheese salad and refreshing cocktails. Great service (which we haven't experienced too many times this trip) and an altogether lovely meal. Highly recommended for a meal on the way to or from the old city.
