My first visit to Israel and Middle East food was here -- and if you love grilled lamb and chicken, there are few better. And, the falafels and hummus are a close second. The Caravan is well known, and for good reason. Do not forget the coffee!

We came a group of 12 with dogs, they opened a special room for us. They brought all the food there and were very efficient. The food was OK, large quantities at OK quality. Some of the salads were better and some less. The main courses were OK as well.

The Caravan is a very popular restaurant in the Arab village of Abu Ghosh, not far from Jerusalem. Street parking is limited and it's very busy on Saturdays, so you are advised to get there early. The food is very good and the view of the Judean hills is stunningly beautiful. The restrooms are up some stairs through green plants.... More

The Caravan is the father or even one might say the grandfather of all the restaurants and Hummus joints in the Arab Israeli village of Abu Gosh. The Hummus is excellent and the location and view are perfect for a nice relaxing arab style lunch with all the mezze dishes Hummus and meats grilled on the stick. They even have... More

Tje best restaurant in the area. Great food. The staff is super. Very nice people. The prices are very comfort. There are many dishes for vegan. The best dish to to my opinion is the pumpkin tahini salad.. Don't misd the falafel balls, and the dessert coffee and baqulawa. Mostly recommended!!!

We went a group of friends. Was very busy, but we got a sit very quickly. Not the first visit. Food is average. Service good. Cleanliness poor.

Salads varied from bad (canned tomatoes) to OK (humus, tehini). The meat was nice (as my friends taisted it). The service was horrendous, forgetting our main course. Visit a different if you can.

It is one of the we'll know restaurants for middle eastern cuisine. However, in recent years the quality and portions of the food have been decreased. However, they still have very good humus and Tabula and filled vegetables with rice. I encourage the owners, the Ibrahim's family, to return back to the golden days.

I am not sure what I loved more, the over the top service, the food or both. They brought out some kind of sampler thing with egg plant, hummus and all kinds of small plates and the fresh made bread, then had lamb and rice, it was all just absolutely wonderful. The service was very attentive. I would go back... More
