    Found this place in passing. They take credit card so I ate here. Lovely interior and great menu with signature dishes. My server was really friendly and helpful. I ordered the signature fish dish and it was really good. Also had the mint iced tea which was great. I'm glad I didn't go to one of the more touristy places with mediocre looking food. Prices here are reasonable. Very happy that I ate here on my last day. The meal and experience was memorable.

    The service was great, good was really good. Even though it is in the heart of the old city it's very reasonable priced. Manager/owner came by and talked to us about the food. We got a dish that comes from Ethiopia. Not to mention they have hamburgers with yummy French fries. If you've been in the country too long and you need a break of Israeli food, they have it. They take credit cards which was good for us.

    We had found this restaurant on Google a few days before, but quickly dismissed it because it was out of our budget. However, a few days later we were starving in the old city and promised each other to stop and eat at the 1st restaurant we came across, whicg happened to be Amigo Emil. The stuffed chicken (chicken stuffed with cheese, served with mashed potatoes and veggies) was INCREDIBLE. It was 60 shekels (~$17), but I was so satisfied with my meal. Plus, it was nice and cool in the restaurant and there were outlets! Nice staff too.

    Wonderful food. We had dinner down in the lower level. Couches and stools with a Mediterranean flair. Would definitely bring friends and family.

    The restaurant is typical, you eat well. You can drink wine or beer, even non-alcoholic. Mixing our English and Italian, the owner told us the story of his family restaurant. Great.

    An amazing experience in the heart of Jerusalem. We ordered Hummus, Majudara and the Amigo Fish Fillet accompanied by Mint Tea. It was a feast with wonderful flavor and the service was very friendly.

    Decent dinner with local specific of foods. There is old Spanish music in the background and the food is matching the quality of the price. They add by default 10% discount on the final bill. The waiters speak English and the general atmosphere was nice. You can try both Israeli and Palestinian beers 😁

    Beautiful atmosphere in an historic stone building. Food was excellent. Prices were reasonable.

    We had walked a few times passed this restaurant and really liked the ambience. It's a very old building and the tables and walls are decorated with beautiful tiles. The food is cheap for Jerusalem standards, we had 2 main dishes and 2 appetizers with 2 glasses of wine for 170 shekels. The food is tasty but a bit simple, which is not a bad thing.

    Unfortunately, it seems as if Amigo Emil is out of business. Closed for weeks and no announcement on it´s doors. Corona-Victim, I suppose. Sad!

    Sorry to say but the place looks to be closed or out of business. Came today with a group of friends. There were locks on the doors. Although the google maps says it's open
