When we arrived what we saw was a restaurant packed with tour groups all eating the same average things, none of which looked very appetizing. We tried the mezzo platter and it was simply average. We also ordered the Musakhan which is Palestinian... More

I had lunch in Rossini's after a morning full of meetings. We ordered the mixed appetizer dish to start with. It was very small, and one of the items on the dish was frozen!

We made a booking and when we arrived the starter was already served. Took a while til the dinner was served after we had finished our meal but it was affordable and speaking for the cost. Deserves a visit.

Our tour guide knew we would enjoy a change of pace so he took us to Rossini's in the Old City. It was lovely! Excellent Israeli wines, chicken, lamb, etc. Great service. A very pretty place!

I had the chance to have dinner there twice this time--both times good food. It was also a pleasant place to eat with a friend over there.
