The unique restaurant of Yad Hashmona is constructed of specially imported pine from Finland, to preserve the Scandinavian atmosphere of the place. This unique dining hall, together with a glassed-in restaurant terrace facing the green Judean Mountains, promise our guests a special treat.

Our famous Friday Brunches include a wide selection of cheeses, pies & quiches, salads, homemade country breads, fucachia from the taboun, rich deserts buffet, freshly squeezed juices, coffee, herbal teas and more… all in a pleasant atmosphere.

The Restaurant also offers a unique Jesus Passover Experience- the Biblical Meal. The Biblical Meal is an exciting culinary trip to the past. With an authentic and delicious meal accompanied by a running commentary by an experienced guide, groups will enjoy an extraordinary lunch or dinner. This is truly something not to be missed while spending time in the Holy Land. Bookings must be made in advance to ensure availability.

Our restaurant provides both meat and dairy menus for all occasions: Bar/Bat Mitzvah, birthdays, Brit (circumcisions), social gatherings, seminars etc., whether it is an intimate event or a crowd of up to 250 participants. Our creative professionals will work to make your event one of a kind!
