Well, my mother, who recently made aliyah from London said well we cant go to the Ritz for Tea so lets go to the Waldorf Astoria, the brand new hotel in Jerusalem! We did just that! It was my 26th wedding anniversary and we decided, as we were going away just the two of us for the weekend we would go out with my mum and sister for tea. We do most things together so why not this and actually it was my mums idea. Well, as it turned out all our children suddenly joined us, all coming in from different directions and. ended up being 9 people at the table in the smartest hotel in Jerusalem. The doorman reminded as of the Ritz in London, the elegant foyer, reception room was so impressive, beautiful flower arrangements everywhere and , most important a wonderfully attentive waiter named Teva, just out of the army .
We were very impressed with everything bar one salad. The food was tasty, the presentation was superb and nothing was too much trouble for them. I think the best choice was the Smoked Salmon club sandwich, our kids loved their pasta and the ambience was fabulous. My mother really enjoyed it and cant wait to get back there. It was a really afternoon of relaxation, nothing too much for anyone, and the kids could even chill out on the sofas on the side which was fun for them. Although it seems posh it wasn't too posh, will go again and by the way the prices were absolutely fine, no more that most good milk restaurants in town. highly recommended
