We walked into this wonderful restaurant by accident, not knowing what a great treat was in store for us. We were in a hurry and had only 30 minutes to spare before attending a show at the Tower of David nearby. Our waiter, Fajah, went...above and beyond to help us choose the best dishes for this limited time span and expedited our order. I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of the food, service, ambience. It is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to and I love Middle Eastern food so I have tried many!More

My wife and I were visiting tourists in Jerusalem from the United States. We were staying at the nearby Gloria Hotel. Roots was recommended to us by a friend. After a morning of sightseeing, we visited Roots for lunch. We shared a meat lover focaccia....The meats were ham, bacon, salami, and sujok. The crust was amazing. We think it was one of the best crusts we have ever eaten. The combination of meats was very flavorful. We also shared kubeh in yogurt sauce. It was a unique combination of meat flavors and the yogurt sauce was the perfect complement. The outdoor dining space is a great setting to enjoy a delicious meal. Amir, the owner, is a and hospitable host . The next time we are in Jerusalem, we will definitely visit Roots for another meal.More

If you want an upscale dining experience in the Old City with superlative local food, Roots is probably your best choice. Beautiful surroundings evoke the history of the Old City, while you enjoy a creative but authentic take on Jerusalem's cuisine. Don't miss the labne...with makdous appetizer.More

Rooths is just next to the Jaffa gate in the old Jerusalem. A very beautiful and cosy spot. The club sandwich was enormous and delicious. I regret I could not finish it. The service was excellent and friendly. Highly recommended.
