  • We made a reservation before starting the trip, very recommended restaurant and exceeded expectations. We prefer to sit on the second floor because of the loud sound but very excited where even the chef or sous chef enters the party. The waiters and waitresses are very friendly and cheerful, the decor has a lot of bossa and delicious food. We asked some entries for all to experience and then a main dish, a delicious fish and finishing with desserts. The Valley visista and will return on our next trip

  • You can learn a lot about people and specially about Jerusalem's residents by going to this market. You will find all kind of people, shops, tastes and smells. Some of the great restaurants, humus and more. At night it is even more special and interesting, many of the doors are painted by the artist called Solomon.
  • Amazingly colorful market that changes into a very cool young scene in the later hours ! A must visit if you hadn't yet. Friday is by far the most crowded day to go. Fresh fruit and vegetables meet and fish dried fruits and candy, great place to grab a bite of some sort, many restaurants and cafes. Enjoy this great cultural experience!
  • Greta experience. It's a combination of a traditional Israeli market (much cleaner) and cool bars and micro restaurants that are scattered all over the place. As opposed to other markets this place gets lively at night, as it is during the day.
  • a slice of Jerusalem. great for fresh foods of all kinds. a feast for the eyes. best place for seasonal produce, as well as baked goods, meat, fish, cheese, deli. YUM! and there is a great variety of places to sit down for a snack or a meal.
  • Love this market. The freshest, cheapest, best tasting vegetables in town. Exciting and colorful. The spice shops are marvelous and add to the fragrances from the many restaurants. Lately it has become the place to be for young people who take over the shops and cafes each evening. If you can't find something in this market you obviously don't need it.
