Reservations @ Berber & Q Grill House

As most of you know we have been taking reservations for large groups for some time. We have had numerous requests to extend this to smaller parties.

Sama’ DJ Set | Boiler Room Palestine

As you might know, we LOVE electronic music and we’re always in search of new tracks or mixes for the playlists of both Grill House & Shawarma Bar.

PITA MONTH 2019

DIRT. Wine list takeover

From our wine lists: ‘Let’s try a more imaginative way of picking the wine you’d like to drink with us. Instead of looking at its colour, look at its terroir. Would you like a wine from the mountains with a well balanced and refreshing acidity? Or maybe a bottle made from vines, deeply rooted in…
