Tried to make reservation. The website doesn't say they are close or anything. The answering machine says "waiting time is 30 minutes". Unbelievable!!! But it does get worse!!! After 20 minutes of waiting... the machine says... "waiting time is 25 minutes"... unbelievable!!! Really unbelievable!!! How do they dare??

Located in a greenery house full with flowers and plants- perfect place to relax and have a good size breakfast. I had their frittata and it is excellent!!! Coffee was good as well. The place was packed; therefore, it is advisable to book in advance especially if you come in a larger group. Prices are not on the cheap side... More

If you are in the neighborhood can recommend for any meal any time of day for everyone. Met a friend for lunch and we enjoyed the food and the surroundings.

The surrounding is amazing: much green and flowers, wood, patios, a fountain... Very pastoral. You can buy flowers and even order organic fresh products. The dishes are very nice, and there's a "special of the day". Nice service, excellent wifi. Highly recommended for a pastoral meal, business, romantic or with friends.

Good for light branch or breakfast. The assortment is very poor. Service is good though. Don't come intentionally. Would recommend if it is on your way.

We had heard about this restaurant from a friend and are so glad we went! It was one of the best meals I had in Israel! The garden is beautiful (it was January and we walked around it, but ate inside) and the food is spectacular and a little unusual. Definitely recommend!

The dishes looked great and most of them really tasted as beautiful as they looked. All besides the fish that was a bit undercooked
