This charming restaurant is sexy in the hills close to the town of Carmiel in the North of Israel. It is on kibbutz Lotem. The restaurant is quite unique in ambience. In the winter it is cozy to sit around the fire. There are original knock knacks all around. There is outdoor dining with wonderful views in all directions even... More

I have been to the restaurant about eight times over the years and it's always been a favorite. (See my review from a year ago). However, my visit this month was so frustrating I've decided to take it off my list. Service was abysmal: Our bottle of red wine was hot and our wine glass had a lipstick stain. We... More

If you're traveling up North and are looking for a quirky cafe with a great view as far as the Kinneret, schedule this place in. It is a shabby chic hideaway that offers good coffee and great cheesecake- we didn't eat anything else as it was just a coffee stop for us. Worth a visit for the view alone! www.rotman.org.il

We heard a lot about this restaurant, but it did not stand to the standard we expected. The place is in a rustic environment with beautiful scenery however, but the place looks like a junkyard. The service and the food didn't match it. The service was very slow, we waited for more than half an hour to place our order.... More

We used to visit this place a few times a year and even had family parties there but no more! You can't beet the view and the ambience but food and service were deteriorating with each visit and the prices were going up. One can find better in this area

I have eaten here several times and always enjoyed it. The view is wonderful and I love the decor with all sorts of cute knick knacks. The menu is big and varied. I usually end up eating one of the chicken dishes, which I always enjoy, but I've taken meat lovers and vegetarians here who were quite happy. Breakfast is... More

Rotman was one of my favorite restaurants . . . until tonight. My husband took me there to celebrate my birthday. Four years ago we had even had a wedding reception there. . .but tonight the service was poor (the wine arrived 10 minutes after the starter course), the food mediocre, the water glass dirty, the wine glass spotted and...

Location - a reason to visit Good food - yearning to have more Atmosphere to let enjoy the above reasons - Rothman's got them all stable for a very long time. The owner was running for many years a Friday morning radio show and was attracting us by his rich culture knowledge and sensitivity. So the rumor (many years back)... More

It is nothing like anywhere else. a place put together with much love and attention for details. the view is overwhelming, its big enough but feels very intimate and cozy. a wild collection of ornaments and antiques collected by Maya, the owner, adds a personal, fun touch. service was excellent - attentive, polite and helpful. And the food - oh... More
