After reading the majority of excellent reviews for this restaurant our level of excitement and anticipation for a culinary experience was extremely high. Sadly this didn't materialize. Despite the attentive and caring service and position facing the old city walls of Jerusalem, the 3 course meal was at times; uneatable ( the endive salad due to the dressing's high sugar content ), bland ( porcini soup) and despite precise requested cooked steaks ( medium and rare) the meat was too stringy having to cut chunks of fat away from the steak. For a Chef cooking level, more imagination needs to be given than serving the steak with 2 fried tomatoes , two Broccoli stalks, chimichuri sauce and French fries that looked and tasted like burnt thin potatoes chips. The dessert was an over chewy chunk of chocolate cake with a ball of fruit ice-cream decorated with crushed biscuits. Restaurant reputations cannot rely solely on service, ambiance and position. The food needs to be tasty,innovative and an element of "unusual" otherwise there is absolutely no justification to pay such high prices for a mediocre meal that can be replicated in a non star/ non chef eatery for a third of what we paid. I'm more than aware that for restaurants, these past 20 pandemic months have been a challenge. Nevertheless, the aim of my review is NOT to put people off eating there but for the restaurant owners " to up their game and standards " so that one can come away thinking that was an amazing meal and justifies the high prices.

Our 5th time there. Was excellent every time. The only thing I would change is the music. Chill music i can hear in every place around the world. Put some local or classical music.

PICTURE PERFECT
