Downstairs by the Wolfson buildings in Rechavia - on Diskin. There's a shopping center down there.

Just back from Israel. Just to confirm what others have said. Rimon, always dependable good. Not always great, but very good. We went to the one in Mamilla. Entrecote was very good. Papagaio was very good. Most ordered that Brazilian all you can eat, and they do keep coming. Greens bagels melt in your mouth. Belinda has good breakfast/lunch. Keyara also very good. Bring a bank roll with you!
which one would u say is better if you need to choose one Entrecote or Papagaio ?

Entrecote has better food than papagaio
But papagaio has better ambiance , as well as cool menu options
