Try Middle east food in the menu, it's very good! I had been there for 3 times when I was staying in Jerusalem.

We had the shrimp with lemon and garlic and rice. And the stuffed chicken breast. Waiter was polite and attentive. We were met at the door with their homemade hummus and pita bread. I'd go there again.

Service and food was great. My girlfriend was vegan, and the place was accommodating with a few options. Loved the rice and all the fun salads and dips. Recommend to do the plate that has all the appetizzers.

This is the place to come if you've spent a day walking around the old city. I had a wonderful Mezzah and combination of grilled meats that were well marinated and made to perfection. Comfortable seating, friendly service - what else to wish for?

It's a very lovely restaurant on a very crowded street. The food is great. The prices are moderate. For one starter, three main courses, two glass of wine and water, we payed aroun $80.

Amigo Emil is a good place to eat when visiting the old city. Good ambience, clean, friendly people. Good vegetarian options on the menu for people like me. Not very expensive. Cream of mushroom soup and Jerusalem mezzah recommended.
