    We've eaten here often over the years, bringing family members and friends who visit from abroad, mostly for the special atmosphere of the place, the food has been mediocre. Last week we went for dinner; there was a limited menu and although early they were out of the dish I would have liked to order so we ordered the Makluba, a rice and meat dish, chicken for myself, lamb for my husband. The waitress, not the one who took our order, came over with the dishes stating that they were out of the lamb so we assumed both dishes were chicken. I noticed that my dish was 80% rice and the little meat that was there was mostly fat, I could barely eat it. We called a waiter over and when we explained the situation he indicated that my dish hadn't been chicken, something I hadn't been told, and he explained that it was supposed to be fatty. There was no apology for the fact that I'd been given the wrong dish and had found it for the most part inedible. Although there appeared to be enough staff there we had to flag someone down each time we needed them... Given the poor quality of the dish I was served and the equally poor service it will be a long time until we return, we're making sure to inform family members and friends that we've taken there over the years as to the current situation.

We had to sit in the entrance as the place was mostly reserved and that is understandable but they kept opening the...

    Food tasted good , but extremely overpriced. 65schekl for a small soup and 49 for a tiny salad. Additionally, they charge service which no other restaurant on Israel where we ate did. We had to sit in the entrance as the place was mostly reserved and that is understandable but they kept opening the door to go out and smoke and talk to each other so it was freezing cold as well.

    Good food, limited selection
    TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on January 1, 2020

    Charming old world location. Atmosphere takes you to another era. You need reservations almost all the time. Be prepared to choose from a limited selection. Many items on the menu were not available.
