The Eucalyptus

The Eucalyptus

With a focus on cultural memory and local produce, this fine Kosher restaurant in the Artist Quarter won't be a cheap eat, but it will provide a memorable experience. All dishes are based on biblical scenes, and give a modern interpretation to meals mentioned in the sacred text. The chef uses spices and herbs that have been typical of the land for millennia. The location is also great: from their elegantly decorated balcony, you'll be able to admire the sun set over the Old City walls.

Azzahra

Azzahra

Try out authentic Palestinian cuisine at Azzahra, located in a beautiful mansion only a ten minute walk away from the Old City. If in doubt, choose their typical, well-reviewed makloubeh: its Arab name literally means "upside down", because this dish of lamb, rice and toasted almonds is served upside down after cooking. Their bakdoonsiyyeh, a parsley salad served with bread and tahini dip sauce, is also recommended. They also offer stone-baked pizzas, and their wine list is extensive.
