Aux Trois Chacals information
Almost invisible from the main road that leads to the Colossi is this small French family-run restaurant serving home cooking in the garden or on the beautiful rooftop terrace. This is a cosy place to pass a few hours or to have lunch with sandwiches (E£16), salads (E£15) or a good grill, not to mention the tasty couscous. No alcohol but it’s probably the only place on the West Bank where you can get a Lavazza espresso. Dinner should be booked in advance.
