Quite expensive, but really great food. Recommendations of personnel were very important. Craft local beer (tastes like IPA-light).

I use to visit frequently Jerusalem and love good restaurants. At Mona it was my first time. An old and nice building. The waiter service was excellent. Friendly and pleasant. First dish was very good. Wine even. I ordered glass and not bottle. Second was a Hanger Steak and I had an unpleasant surprise. The meat was full of gristle... More

A fine restaurant, with a young and vibrant crowd. Not too noisy. Superb polenta with mushrooms. All four of us enjoyed our meals. Overall, worth going to.

What an excellent meal! We had the six course tasting menu with dessert. All the dishes were well prepared and presented with a perfect balance of flavors including items such as tuna sashimi, mackerel and duck confit/duck ravioli. If you enjoy chocolate, the chocolate cremeux with coffee ice cream was to die for. Professional, friendly service in a chic yet... More

Very good food and atmosphere. The cooking is special and interesting, The portions could be a bit bigger and wine list should include more mid priced local brands...

Great restaurant, simply decorated but food is very good. We had the tasting menu, which included 6 courses and 2 deserts. It was both diverse and creative. Located about 20 min walk from the old city. Definitely among the best in the city.

Hands down one of the best dining experiences we've ever had. All of the food we tried was perfectly presented, with excellently balanced flavors and texture. I had the best, and most perfectly cooked, beef filets I've ever tried in Israel. The service was top-notch and the atmosphere is elegant but not pretentious. Expensive, but well worth it.
