Came without a reservation, okay my fault. We waited for about 20 minutes for a table to be ready. Menus brought after 10 minutes, but order taken in a timely manner. After ordering an item 3 times, after one waiter after another said they didn't have, they did have, they didn't have, the item was brought. One party member asked to have a dish without a certain food item, but it was put on the plate in any case. The food is okay. It is convenient in the Israel Museum, but not worth a special trip.

We went to the museum on a rainy day in Jerusalem. After several fabulous hours within the complex, we found ourselves very hungry indeed! We returned to the main entrance and had a choice between the cafe next to the Modern, or the the Modern itself. After looking at the menu and the kindness of the hostess, we chose to eat at Modern. We were seated promptly at a table for two and ordered a large beer and a white wine. The prices are average for Jerusalem and the drinks were very good. I asked about having the Mezza but for one and the waiter indicated that it would be a large amount of food-I am glad that I listened and ordered three a la carte starters. The portion sizes were very generous. I had the falafel, humus and Israeli salad. My goodness they were delicious, especially the salad-a perfect mix of lemon and olive oil. My husband had the chicken schnitzel-also, very good with a light batter and not at all oily. My father and mother in law joined us in the restaurant and the staff were very accommodating as we moved to a larger table. We all ate from my plates, again as the sizes made it more than enough to share. Also, my husbands main meal came with another Israeli salad. We enjoyed several hours of great food and drinks in an inviting and relaxing atmosphere. It was especially a nice place to talk about all of the wonderful exhibits and experiences we had while in the museum. Really a lovely end to our museum visit and one that we would all highly recommend. If we lived in Jerusalem there is no doubt that we would be frequent diners and do highly recommend a meal here, especially at the end of your visit to the museum itself.

We went to celebrate our anniversary at Modern after a few friends of us recommended the place. The atmosphere is cozy, and the service start immediately with a small glass of soup, which was delicious. We decided to take the lunch menu with a small amount can be upgraded and ordered a fish carpaccio and fresh salmon with beet cubes as starters. Both of them were delicious. For the main dishes, we ordered a sofrito which was simply excellent and the asado which was tasty and not fat. We completed with one of their delicious dessert. The service was excellent too. It's one of the good restaurant in town, I definitely recommend.

Restaurant for the museum
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on December 20, 2017

The restaurant is in the israel museum. It's a chill and relax place. The tapas platter is a great introduction to Israel food. Love the falafel. Lots of tourists here but the service is still good and staff are really nice and friendly.
