This is no mistake - an excellent restaurant. Everything was great, every dish that we ordered was a nice surprise. Expensive but worth the price.

Attractive, interesting setting in historic building. Contemporary menu grounded in local ingredients and regional dishes. Bread and spreads notably excellent. Energetic and helpful staff. One of our favorites among a sampling of Israel's top rated restaurants.

This place serves nice food, particularly desserts, but be prepared it is fine dining and carries corresponding prices. The menu is tailored towards modern more adventurous eating (sweetbreads, liver, etc.) but there are still lovely dishes for the more conservative pallet. The buttered chicken was...More
