You would go on a date to Massov? Or for that matter, anywhere in the Tachana HaMerkazit? Massov is generally overrun by immature shana alef boys, and the Tachana is so incredibly public that you're bound to run into at least ten people you know. But hey, if those things don't bother you....

Personally, I'd recommend Rosemary/רוזמרין which is a very nice restaurant but more out of the way. It's on Rechov Shlomtzion HaMalka (I think, it's either that or Rechov David HaMelech) about a block or two up from the King Solomon. Gan HaPaamon is only a couple blocks away, too, so you could go walking after dinner. :)

I loved it in sem. I know it is not good for a first date. Maybe when you know eachother. They make the best stuff.

Rosemary is a really good milchig restaurant. Its actually has the best and freshest fish in Yerushalyim( that Ive had so far) Its on Rehov Mapu, but like the other guy said up the block from the King Solomon and the King David.

• take the back alleys of the Old City. get to know the kids there. a breath of fresh air.

• Gardens near Knesset (huge public park with rolling hills and flowers/waterfall.) so peaceful there on shabbos

• Muskat (or Mooskat, as the Israeli's say it) on Kanfei Nesharim (near Har Nof) spacious (two levels?) italian food. their fettuccine rocks.

• Mama Mia (when it was around) was delightful. right off king george, yet in it's own stone..courtyard of sorts with gardens..(they were filming a food show last time I went. was pretty cool)

• the Betzalel Art school has a gallery (free and normal stuff), plus it's enclosed in a meanderin s tone wall all around..cute and quiet places to sit

• saunter down through the back streets of Rechavia & Shaarei Chesed. Quaint houses, nice artisan touches, quiet streets, blooming trees and warm Israeli sun on your back..

• The OU Center (on Keren Hayesod/King G), lots to do. tiny cafe to eat in (basement). speeches. trips. activities.

Eluna is a site that lists and reviews kosher restaurants througout Israel. You may find someplace there that is what you are looking for, read the reviews to see what fits the atmosphere that you would like (and the price range you're interested in).

Do not use the discount coupons from the site on a date.
I am DEMANDING that the Rabbonim start screaming about this.

Our house is in Shaarei Chessed. Also there is Medrash Shmuel Yeshiva so beware of bumping into a familiar bochur or two, including my son :) You are welcome to enjoy our lemon tree though; this year we picked over 200 lemons and distributed them around Shaarei Chessed (after maysering them).

Also the bathroom is filthy. Something a girl wouldn't appreciate.

I second Muscat.

The tayelet w/picnic lunch. Once a guy took me to the kotel to daven, we walked the tayelet, sat at a picnic table and made the lunch I prepared. This was not a 1st or 2nd date.

Gan Sakker... ;)

And if you're looking for an all night place, cafe rimon.

Also, Atara restaurant on yafo is nice.


Or even just going to the old city and sitting and chatting...

Holyland cafe at the bottom of bayit vegan is quite nice, but it's a bit out of the way.
