The restaurant is located on King David Street, across from the famous internation King David Hotel, Alrov Mamila Boulevard, and Jerusalem's downtown area.
Chef Jacob (Yankale) Turgeman spent a lot of time working his way up in London and Israeli restaurants. He believes in the winning combination of salt, olive oil and lemon. Among the restaurants fine dishes we recommend the outstanding Norwegian Atlantic Salmon served with lemon caramel; the avocado cream and snow peas, also called Chinese peas, usually eaten with its pods.
The delicious appetizers are only the beginning, the main dish will make your mouth water over a 28 days old entrecote stake served with side vegetables, or over the tongue confit and veal cheek dish.
