A unique place, built with love by the owner to create a very friendly atmosphere. Food is home made, reflects the various ingredients that exist in the Israeli cuisine. You may occasionally wait for your dish, but given the nice atmosphere it is fine. Free parking near the place

The place is beautiful, very romantic. Went there for my birthday dinner. Food was average, service the same, not too many smiles which is a shame considering the setting.

The food is delicious at Makom balev but it is the garden setting that makes it special. The garden has unique antique furniture and stoves, small waterfalls, palm trees and flowers.

It is located at the Southern edge of Ra'anana, at the end of a short unpaved road, in a wooded area. The place looks nice and spacious. We visited on a cloudy day, and decided to eat inside. The atmosphere was pleasant. The breakfast/brunch selections are quite good. After ordering the main dishes, we were directed to the reasonably-stocked buffet... More

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...
