Focaccia is a restaurant we have visited many times in Jerusalem. It's location in a beautiful, old building and fond memories of the Wiener schnitzel attracted us back. We walked into to a half empty restaurant that was unkempt. Used BABY WIPES were left near the entrance and rubbish left on the tables behind us. We asked the manager (sat on his laptop) to wipe the sticky table we had been given to which he replied that it wasn't sticky at all. Another waiter came then to take our order. Wiener Schnitzel was the clear choice, which we requested without parmesan and egg on top. On the side I requested a half portion of spaghetti pomodoro (standard in most italian restaurants) instead of fries on the side, to which the waiter replied 'no we don't do that'. Five minutes after ordering the drinks were slammed on our table by a rather miserable/charmless waitress who didn't even look at us (and by the looks of it treated others much the same). The food came and was okay, the potatoes on the side were cold and the salad that the waiter proudly announced he'd give us 'on the house' was soggy and old (probably sat in the fridge for a good few days). After receiving our food it appeared as if the waiter was purposely avoiding us. For 230 shekels (£53) for mains and two drinks, it was quite expensive too. Never again. Avoid at all costs.

This is an old classic building in downtown Jerusalem that has housed many restaurants in the past. I was there with my wife and 4 girls late Saturday afternoon. I ordered the Spicy red tuna tartar, which was excellent. My wife and one of the girls both had Aglio-e-olio spaghetti which was excellent as well (the pasta was made to tee). Two of the girls had the ravioli which in my opinion had room for improvement. Our 12-year old ordered the beef tenderloin which was very good. Interestingly the Foccacia was just so-so. Service was very polite and good although the place was very busy.

What can I say? The food was extremely tasty and enjoyable. The staff were friendly, polite, helpful and generous! Great atmosphere. Music from our era (tells you our age). Would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone visiting Jerusalem.
