with red heifer i havent eaten there in almost 2 years. rimon meat has good food and price but the ambiance is lacking. youre best bet is across the street from the plaza on ramban. its called keyara. it has good food and nice ambiance. it's probably what youre looking for as its the closest youll get to an american style restaurant, and location wise its great. theres also a 10% off coupon there.  beware of falling into the plazas trap and eating in primavera.

Keyara seems lovely... you're right about the setting, looks really good.

I'm just a little concerned with portion size.... I know it's not cheap (seems like dinner will run 200-250 a head) but if it's mediocre portions, that might not do...

Have you tried? Ideally we would want to order general serving plates, so we can just sit and enjoy... (not each one for themselves..) 

I'll try calling them tomorrow

Keyara is really good and nice another place with a nice sized party room and cheaper with great food as well would be RYU on emek! A great nice relaxed ambiance dairy place I would say is bait ticho it's really good and don't think many people know about it so it's usually quiet and motsai shabbat they have live music nothin crazy just a keyboard and sax! Very relaxing and nice outdoor garden patio

You advised me against it, so I stopped.
However -correct me if I'm wrong- one of the taanis against it, was that so many places were suddenly given a hechsher, which is a valid point.
I must say that I noticed in tachana hamerkazit in yeru, quit a lot of posters promoting rabanut mehadrin restaurants, but when I got there, the mehadrin part wasn't there. Upon me asking them, they said that it was recently removed. And that at some 3 places, in a small area...
Not proving anything, just saying.

Rabbanut mehadrin has its ups and downs and its very hard to know when and what and where you can rely on it.

Rimon meat makes the best steak sandwich on earth with their Philly Steak Sandwich, but it was closed for renovations when I was just there.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

anybody in kashrus in israel will explain to you that it has nothing to do with politics, rather a new person took over and instituted many kulos which most people do not agree with. unfortunately you were misinformed
heres the problem, how can you have an opinion on something without knowing the facts?
