The Mount of Temptation Restaurant
The Mount of Temptation Restaurant first opened its doors in 1973 as a small café capable of serving 50 patrons. Today, the restaurant can accommodate 1,500 guests and boasts the largest international food buffet in the Holy Land. The buffet features more than 30 items that include salads, meats, fruits and sweets. Fruits, vegetables and meats are purchased in the morning from local farmers and shop keepers. Specialties of the house are lamb chops, Kenaffe (an Arabian sweet) and freshly squeezed orange juice and lemonade. The restaurant’s quality food is homemade daily with fresh ingredients. Guests are encouraged to take advantage of the lunch specials.
