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

This restaurant offers a sort of countryside-nature-"good old Israel" style, meaning a geart atmosphere both for families and couples. the food is very good: I had breakfast and a vegeterian dish. service is probably the weak spot, but it is not too bad and it did not stop me from coming again with freinds and family.

Lunch with friends on a perfect 20 degree C spring day. Garden setting was perfect. For appetizers, chicken liver pate, grilled eggplant - both top-notch. Main courses salmon - tasty, beef medallions - good cut of meat, cooked perfectly but the sauce could have been better, mashed potatoes very good. House wine and coffee quite good. Service fine. Atmosphere well... More
