Good food. Rude staff
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on November 11, 2021

Food was wonderful, however, the staff were terrible, including the manager, who was obnoxious.. I will not return because of that. Tip: Do not arrive between 7.30 -8.30 pm the staff are overwhelmed. Starters arrive with main courses and it's impossible to get service. Waited 40 minutes for the bill. Eventually had to threaten...

Food was wonderful, however, the staff were terrible, including the manager, who was obnoxious.. I will not return because of that. Tip: Do not arrive between 7.30 -8.30 pm the staff are overwhelmed. Starters arrive with main courses and it's impossible to get service. Waited 40 minutes for the bill. Eventually had to threaten to leave without paying. 30 seconds later got the bill. Disappointing and stressful.. Bad attitudes ruined the night.

Good dairy option
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on September 12, 2021

We elected to have a light late afternoon meal, thus we looked for a dairy option. We had very nice toast with several cheese, vegetables and sauce, that came along with French fries. We also had a large salad with black gram, egg and cheese. Both dishes were fresh and tasty.

It is still our go-to place after visiting the Western Wall

As many times in previous years, and as documented in numerous previous reviews, we come here after annual prayer ritual ceremonies at the Western Wall. This most recent latest visit came at the conclusion of the annual 25 hour fast of food and drink that commemorates the destruction of the Holy Jewish Temple 1951 years ago- that day is known as Tisha Bob. The fast ended with the appearance of the renewed three stars at 2012h and at that moment, we were already climbing the steep paths back to the city from the holy edifice. It is worth noting that earlier, on our way to the prayer encounter, we stopped at Cafe Rimon at ke 1800h to confirm that they would be open at 2000h. The cleaning crew worker adamantly said only after 2100h, and he was clearly of the minority there, because it was open and busy when we arrived. We were seated quickly and appropriately by a smiling solicitous friendly and absolutely stunning hostess- she found us a place that was socially acceptable and distant enough from other diners, including the French speaking ones. As a matter of fact, social distancing was practiced in a strict manner in this restaurant. As is our tradition (and where is my review from last summer?), we sat at our restaurant table and surreptitiously snacked from our sandwich bags of Cheerios and corn flakes that we are always given by the fretting worrying mothers before we departed on our journey (after all, my two accompanying passengers are 13 and 11 year old boys who had also done the long trek under the scorching Middle Eastern sun while refraining from any food or water for 25 hours). The place was quite busy and therefore, the food was a bit slow in coming (see my photos of the stain marks on the table from the sauce of the eleven year old that I tried to imbibe with a fork). We certainly enjoyed one of those ice cream and whipped cream and heavenly moist gooey warmed chocolate cake things. Overall- good service, certainly OK food and a bit pricey but manageable for these special events. And of course the place is under elegant kosher supervision. … if Corona situation slows and permits gathering at the Western Wall plaza for the annual pre dawn Grand Hosssnah celebration, we will return here to eat in their temporary portable Tabernacle booth. What can be a better recommendation for a restaurant than a multiple repeat customer?
