Fodor's Review

Chef Rama Ben Zvi combines local cheeses and vegetables with wild herbs gathered from as far away as the Dead Sea for a meal that could easily last hours amid the gorgeous Judean Hills. The menu changes at this spot open only a couple of days a week, but the beet hummus is outstanding, and grilled lamb ribs served on bulgur wheat with tomato chutney are delightful. Desserts like pistachio ice cream are beautifully executed. Prices are upscale, but the handmade wooden furniture and gravel floor mean you don't have to dress to impress. Drinks include a spicy coriander cocktail, and the wine list includes many Israeli bottles.
