stop on the Sandeman tour - pricey lunch

We stopped here for lunch as part of the Sandeman tour. I didn't take up the lunch "offer" of ILS50 for a selection of mezze, hummus, and bread. It was a good thing, as others in the group complained that it was a steep price for what they got! However, this place is meant to be famous for its hummus, and a good stop to rest your feet during your tour of the old city. So I recommend maybe coming here for a cold drink, and order a small bowl of hummus and some bread to nibble on.

We had lunch here two days in a row. The food was very tasty. We had falafel, hummus, fuul with tahini on top, spicy Turkish puree, chopped Arabic salad, and pita bread. All of it was delicious. No complaints here. But there were definitely a few things we didn’t like so much. First, our servers the first day (an older man and a young man) were not very friendly. In fact, they were a bit grumpy as if we were a bother. We were the first diners there around 11:30am. We asked for a menu but were told there was none. We understood that all they served is hummus, falafel, and tomatoes + pickles. So that is what we had. On our second visit, we discovered after ordering that there is a laminated menu that even includes English. We held it in our hands. Why were we told there is no menu the first day? After looking at what another table was eating, the second day we ordered fuul (fava beans), spicy Turkish puree as well as hummus and an Arabic salad (different than the first day). Being told that there is no menu means you don’t know what is available and, more importantly, what the prices are. The laminated menu includes lots of dishes but no prices. Both days we felt we were overcharged, especially the second day. Neither day did we get a proper bill. A server (and there are several of them) asks what you had and he tells you what to pay. You really have no idea if you are getting a “local’s price” or a “tourist price”. We definitely felt we got stuck with the “tourist price”. Both days, we only saw tourists eating here. In fact, a large tourist group (at least 25 people) came in after we were finished the second day. Again, the food was delicious but on the expensive side based on what you got. We can't understand why customers are treated this way. But if you don’t mind service without a smile and jacked up “tourist prices”, then we can recommend eating here because the food was delicious (and the atmosphere is not bad either but the men’s toilet was a big mess).
