We were a party of six, including two little children. Our reservation was at an early hour and the place was quite empty, which made me think we will get great personal service and that the food will be prepared without pressure and with lots of attention to details. For the girls we ordered the children's meal: chicken breast and... More

Barbarossa is in a great location across from the Dan Panorama on Yefe Nof. The views are nice, but the upstairs room we were in was large enough that the back of the room didn't have much of a view. This isn't a huge deal, but I expected more from a restaurant overlooking Haifa and the bay. The food was... More

I've eaten here quite a few times over the last years, always on business. The location is very good because it's within a short walking distance from a few hotels and the view of Haifa bay and north of Israel is very nice. So if you have guests to entertain, it's a good choice. The food and service are OK.

Located one block from Carmel Center, the restaurant faces the harbor and the sea with sparkling lights below along the coast after dark. Like most places in the city, locals arrive to eat after 9 p.m. so the room can feel very empty to anyone accustomed to an earlier hour. Service is good, the menu similar to that in most... More

The menu is a bit limited, but the food was very good. There is a large selection of beer and wine. Nearly every seat inside has a view out of the huge windows, adding to the ambience. This is a lovely restaurant for a meal, or for just stopping in for a relaxing drink. I highly recommend stopping here.

Location if the restaurant is fantastic. Overviewing all Haifa pirt and Bahaic gardens. On a clear day you can see all the coast line.

Great view of Haifa from this up-scale but casual restaurant. They have nice choices, including a great-looking steak and a super burger. In addition, we tried the pan-seared fish, chicken livers with mashed sweet potatoes, fried calamari, and the tenderloin medallions. Like most places outside of the US, they have major problems with cocktails, but no surprise. For expensive Israel,... More

Definitely try to get a seat by the window. The view is fantastic overlooking Haifa and the bay. I was there with a large group (two tables of 10) and the service was terrific. We started out with family style salads and appetizers. From the simple salad to the chicken pate, everything was delicious. My main was salmon with mashed... More
