Almost all tour groups will spend several days in Jerusalem. If you wish to get away for a private/intimate dinner alone, or with friends from Jerusalem, you may want to consider a late afternoon meal at the relatively new “Wine and Cheese Restaurant” on the rooftop of Notre Dame (just north of the New Gate). The view to the east from there is spectacular: Dome of the Rock, Domes of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Bell Tower of the Redeemer Church, a full view of the Mount of Olives, and even the Hills of Moab in Transjordan!
I suggest arriving in the late afternoon/early evening to enjoy the soft light of the setting sun.
After dinner, check out the “antiquities” on display at the Notre Dame.
Prices (summer of 2012) $17.00 for a steak, $6.00 glass of Merlot, $4.00 for dessert. On Saturday nights, be sure to call ahead for reservations (actually, you may want to avoid the crowd on Saturday night!).
