Talbiye

A sophisticated retreat in the upscale neighbourhood of Talbiya, home to the President’s house and a short walk to the Prime Minister’s residence.

The intimate and nostalgic European interiors and atmosphere are the perfect host for a top-notch meal and a cocktail at any time of day.

Adom’s refined menu features in-house aged meats, seafood, fish, gnocchi, fresh pasta and risotto along with daily seasonal specials crafted by chefs Moti Davis and Elran Buzaglo.

Mona Restaurant

Located inside the upscale Jerusalem Artists’ House, this intimate and rustic garden bistro run by chef-owners Moshe Gamlieli and Itamar Navon serves a modern Israeli cuisine. Start with dishes such as red-tuna sashimi, mushroom polenta or tartare de boeuf, following by a hanger steak or lamb ragout pappardelle. Wash down with something punchy off the carefully curated wine list.

Café de Paris

Situated in the heart of the Rehavia neighbourhood and nearby “Paris Square”, this European-style café serves dairy-focused kosher cuisine by Chef Marcus Gershkovich. Enjoy classic Israeli breakfasts, French brioche, eggs benedict, hearty salads, seafood and vegan breakfasts.
