About the Location

It all began with the eucalyptus tree that chef Moshe Basson planted as a child in his parent’s courtyard. Since then, Eucalyptus has moved several times, and also added to its reputation as a culinary institution of world renown that combines the traditions of biblical food with the Iraqi Jewish culinary heritage.

After opening the doors to the first Eucalyptus restaurant some 30 years ago, currently located on the seam between the Old City and bustling city center, chef Moshe Basson has now handed the reins to his son Ronny. Together they work to introduce modern elements to the known and much loved menu, based on local produce and herbs from the Judean Hills.
