What dishes would you recommend?
I can tell you what I liked but I think the menu changed at least twice since I was there. Seems to change often.

I was a fan of everything but particularly the Pappardelle and i believe the spare ribs. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the Lamb shank. It wasn't bad but was a unique flavor that wasn't my favorite.

Just to update.

Food was sensational! Never tasted such delicious meat restaurant in Israel

Order to grilled liver for appetizer,  entrecôte steak 350gr

Tasted just like an American upscale restaurant.
