Fodor's Expert Review Logos Hotel Restaurant

$$$$ Latrun European

This restaurant—part of a moshav, a kind of cooperative farm, built by Finnish Christians—was originally called Yad Hashmona, or "memorial to the eight," to atone for the Finnish government's turning over of eight Jewish countrymen to the Nazis. Call ahead to reserve a spot at the famously generous Friday brunch of salads, cheeses, quiche, and fish (NIS 110 per person) that's served in a dining room featuring wood imported from Scandinavia. From Jerusalem, take Route 1 toward Tel Aviv, exit at Neve Ilan, and follow signs to Yad Hashmona.
