Exciting venue with tasty food

Each time we go an additional pretty niche greets us in their garden. The food is of high standard. Our waitress could have been more attentive and polite.

We chose the place for team breakfast since it is close to work. The restaurant is hidden a well maintained garden which provides a relaxing atmosphere. I recommend the bar which includes many salads, selection of white cheese, herrings, butter and marmalade. In addition each of us ate an omelet and two soft/hot drinks. Enjoyed! I would recommend to make... More

The place is located at the southern end of Raanana, close to the fields. The feeling is of a place in nature and not in the city, located in a beautiful tree surrounded garden. Place is kids friendly and dogs too! both can roam around the garden and play freely which is great. Food was good too, prices are decent.... More

You think you are in a countryside home with a fire burning in the chimney and white and red tablecloth. Our friends were lucky with their food with good appetizers and good fish. My meat was destroyed. People are nice.

We were there twice recently, once for dinner and once for breakfast. The food ks good, a tad expensive but they orwtty much always have Groupons. Their breakfast is great during the weeek and very odd on the weekend - there are no eggs, and the meals offered are by no means child- friendly.

Seven of us went for a special birthday lunch on a rainy Friday. The place has a nice atmosphere but is extremely noisy. It took a very long time for our waiter to arrive and we needed to ask someone to find him. For starters we ordered goat cheese-stuffed mushrooms (not bad), eggplant (fine) and focaccia with meat (delicious) and... More

It's a nice place to dine "al fresco " although the lawn is synthetic and looks it ! The food is mediocre at the best and the fish and chips contain hardly any fish, soggy greasy chips to be followed by heartburn. The service pretty much matches the food.

The food is really good, having both vegetarian and meat/fish/chicken. The service is superb. The waiters are always attendant to customers. The place itself has is very nice, romantic and unique in decoration. By far the best atmosphere in the area.

Beautiful setting, the restaurant is very nice and classy, but the food is over-rated considering the price you pay.
