Went to a restaurant in Jlm last night called Vaquerio. It's located on Haneviim. The review here is outdated, but that's pretty much the only one that I saw. Here's the menu. We went there bec I got a coupon on groupon. Our 1st course consisted of a salad platter (blah) and the turkey breast salad (delish!). Then we got the steaks - very plain - with some very good roasted potatoes. The ambiance was pretty nice (make sure you get a reservation for the inner room, unless you don't mind a chilly meal). They have 2 all you can eat specials: a (late) lunch (they open at 3pm) all you can eat with 6 types of meat for ₪95; dinner with 10-12 different meats for ₪159. I was wondering if anybody ever did the all you can eat here, and if yes, how was?

it was 90, i also remember this. Then it was really worth it. Now with papagaio serving much better meat and the price being the same, not worth the shlep... But we did have good meals in Yeshiva, traveling with a sherut, 10 guys. good fun

'excellent' might be pushing it, decent is probably more accurate (imho, sorry for being so cynical)
