Everything was great. They accommodated 11 of us at the last minute and the food, service and location were beyond awesome. I have eaten here twice before and haven’t been disappointed.

Setting: nice large rooms with high vaulted ceilings.

Service: friendly and efficient.

Cuisine: as the place was getting ready to close I did not go overboard and limited myself to hummus (which was delicious), and mulukhiyah, which was wonderful. To drink I had a very nice home-made lemonade, and a glass of wine of the house which was not stunning but fine.

BOTTOM-LINE: highly recommended, at least for the Middle-Eastern / Mediterranean food. They also have an Italian side to the menu but did not have a chance to sample it.

For a nice sit-down meal with attentive service in a charming environment, please visit Amigo Emil. I foolishly didn't have enough cash to tip them, so they asked me to leave a review when I got home, and (belatedly) I'm happy to do so.

I was drawn to this place because of the atmosphere (it feels like a cellar in the middle of the Old City), but was most pleased with how friendly the family is that owns it. Costandi is a stand-up gentleman who is very personable. Don’t miss this one if you’re over by the Jaffa Gate, the New Gate, or the Damascus Gate (close to Church of the Holy Sepulchre).

I went here for dinner and it was fabulous. I’ve had a lot of hummus before but the hummus here was so smooth it was something else entirely. The rest of the dinner was very good and the people here were very friendly. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone in Jerusalem.
