Great pub, recommended the Sinta hamburger and steak. Little bit expensive, but worth it. On Tuesday nights sometimes there is live music (rock band).

A small place, no parking nearby. Mostly Romanian cuisine medium quality. The beer selection was inadequate in relation to the place name.

The atmosphere is original and the food is mainly Eastern European. The prices are reasonable and the service fast and friendly. On Friday afternoons they serve goulash but there is a waiting queue and you can have a beer while waiting to be seated. The soups are also quite filling.

From the outside, the building on Jaffa (Yaffo) Road looks downright ugly. Once you get in, the experience begins. First of all the restaurant is set up from a few small eating spaces. The decoration can be described as "eclectic" but in reality is a collection of various posters, signs, antiques and news paper articles. The food is just excellent.... More

On top of it: the pub/ restaurant is a "must visit" for every trip you make up to Haifa. Quick service, Fairley priced great atmosphere, cool place and fantastic design! The food and the beer were very tasty! Should... More
