An Intriguing Culinary Experience The menu is a vibrant fusion of Mediterranean cuisine and Asian flavors, featuring meat, vegetarian and vegan dishes made using chef Benny Ashkenazi's unique culinary techniques and only the freshest ingredients. 

Touro is a kosher chef restaurant in Jerusalem's historical Mishkenot Shaananim neighborhood boasting a beautiful view of the Tower of David and the Old City walls.  Housed in a unique, historical building that was once home to another famous Jerusalem restaurant, Touro's equally stunning indoor and outdoor dining spaces make it one of the most romantic restaurants in the city.  On the terrace, you can take in one of the best views in town, and the indoor dining space is warm and inviting while reflecting the ancient, yet modern character of Jerusalem.

The restaurant is named after Yehuda Touro (1775-1854), an American Jewish philanthropist who helped fund the establishment of the Mishkenot Shaananim neighborhood.

 

Private Events

Touro Restaurant is a great option for events – they cater for up to 120 guests on the balcony or for 20 guests in a private room. It is a favorite among Jerusalem's best event planners for bar/bat mitzvahs and other small-to-mid-sized events.
