We were a group celebrating a birthday on a winter night. When booking we asked to sit down inside, because the group included young children. On arrival they sat us outside, probably due to the fact that the internal space is perceived by a Bar Mitzvah event. Did not help any pleas and petitions to find us a place inside.... More

Very nice place and pleasant atmosphere. We sat near a door that leads outside to the bar and it was frezing every time a waiter opened the door. The prices are very high if you are a family with kids.

Gorgeous surroundings inside and outside and the food looks great on the menu. Unfortunately, when you get what you ordered you are in for a big disappointment. The food lacked flavour and imagination and was overcooked. The wine was more like vinegar than chardonnay and the prices were through the roof! NIS58 for a kids meal?!?! Apart from that the...

Worst restaurant ever... The food is fine , nothing special. The service is bad and the owner is an ugly person.

Delicious fresh food. Not kosher but highly recommended never the less. I felt totally relaxed in the environment and my husband and... More

I went there with a friend a few times. The atmosphere is unique at the Lovely garden. The prices are very high with no reason at all.

My daughter who lives in Ra'anana, got us a Groupon for dinner at this outdoor/indoor garden restaurant. The setting is certainly unusual with a grape arbor and indoor space with funky decor. It was a little hard to find as it is off the road with a dirt parting lot on a residential street, but worth finding. this is a... More

This huge restaurant used to be an agricultural nursery. It is now a restaurant with many rooms to choose from, for eating with groups or large parties. We lucked out to arrive on an evening where they had a special Greek menu and music. We were a group of eight and everyone enjoyed what they had. The setting is lovely... More
