A fancy restaurant in the rich outskirts of town

The restaurant is pleasantly designed to give its guest the feeling of a countryside place, although it is located in an urban area in the outskirts of the town. It would not be convenient to get there without a car,but the place is not intended for the less affluent people anyway. It has a... read more

Used to be good, but now is disappointing and over-priced. Schnitzel that kids received seemed store-bought. Carpaccio was chewy and tasted like liver. Arugula leaves were sad and wilted. Portions were stingy. Seems like the place needs a good kick in the pants from Gordon Ramsay.

I have tried to book the place for about 50 people and the price was double than a similar location in the area. They didn't have any flexibility on some services that they offer, you must take it... Eventually we didn't use this restaurant.

I enjoyed the time in the restaurant and will be going again! My experience was positive and I shall be going again when I have guests come and stay with me. Much easier than spending hours in the kitchen cooking and adorning my dishes!

Being to this venue quite a few times, both for family affairs and as a couple. Excellent atmosphere and good food. This time we went with discount coupons and nevertheless the food was fine- they even gave my wife an upgrade dish when she complained that her original order was cold and tough! That is my only complaint- sometimes the... More

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.
