Lots of vegan options

Many “veg-friendly” restaurants simply offer some variant of cooked vegetables, pasta, rice, or potatoes and call them “vegan options”; not the case at “The Eucalyptus” who makes bonafide vegan versions of their most popular starters and mains. This is in addition to the “already vegan” items on the menu.

And lest you think such veganization will be an after thought of quality and prep, I’m happy to report that both elements are well-tended to; the food quality, prep, presentation, and taste are truly excellent.

The space is equally nice, located in the huggably-quaint “artists colony” outside of the old city walls. And service was exemplary; friendly and helpful staff and no side-eye glances asking about vegan options or issues.

If you are vegan, you will be quite satisfied going to “The Euc”…

Pros: Quality & prep, Atmosphere , Service

Cons: Weak veg desert options, Rotating menu means website menu quickly outdated

Wow. Must go to and must do the tasting menu!

They cater every meal to every type of food preference the food was amazing the service was amazing. The only problem is that it is expensive. But we’ll worth the price. I would in fact go again just to do all the tastings again.

Great for vegans and non-vegans together

Although not a vegetarian restaurant, the chef provides excellent meat alternatives which are vegan. The restaurant doesn’t contain any dairy. My wife (non-vegetarian) and I tried the taster menu which can be adapted to vegan without fuss. The head chef came over to us and asked us about the meal, he really prides in providing vegan meals that are just as delicious if not more than the meat equivalents. Excellent meal, inventive dishes. Expensive but worth every penny. By far the best restaurant in Jerusalem. Thanks.

Pros: Caters for vegans and vegetarians , Amazing meals, Friendly staff and head chef

Fancy and expensive.

Most of menu can be turned vegan. And it seems to be traditional cuisine from the area. It's definitely an upmarket restaurant. Small portions, fancy, and the price comes with it. It was tasty! And there were many vegan options.

Pros: Most of the menu could be turned vegan, Nice atmosphere , Tasty

Cons: Expensive , Small portions

Pricey but worth it

Hands down the best meal we had in Jerusalem. Quite a few vegan options and everything is clearly labeled. Yes, it is expensive, but I felt the food we had was all pretty high quality and was worth the price tags.

Pros: excellent food

Cons: expensive

Excellent food, but not sure if the very high prices for the menus are justified. It's really loud.

very accommodating

Though this restaurant is not totally vegan/vegetarian the effort in which the chef goes to is impeccable. Not only am I celiac I am also vegan. It's hard and I often am made to feel like I am being a pain to the server or chef. Eucalyptus was so enjoyable. They brought out gluten free bread and could do any of the meat dishes vegan. The chef even came over to make sure we were enjoying our dishes and time. Also note the it is in the most beautiful Artists district. A must go when in Jerusalem.

One of the nicer places...

Despite serving animal products - although no dairy - I visited Eucalyptus because of it's high rating in TripAdvisor (It was not yet listed in Happy Cow). Most of the menu is vegetarian and they happily accommodate vegans. This is a kosher restaurant so you don't need to be concerned about dairy. Lots of fresh and local ingredients. Creative menu. Reservations are recommended. Closed Fridays. Saturdays are open for dinner only after 7pm.

Consider that most veg/vegan restaurants in Israel are kosher and therefore closed on Fridays and Saturdays (some serve later dinner). Eucalyptus is open both Fri and Sat.

Pros: Delicious and creative dishes, Good service, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Serves meat
