I've been to Haifa several times, but this is my first time here. The restaurant is across from Stella Maris, and has a spectacular view of Haifa Bay out panoramic windows. Because it's on the side of Mount Carmel, the view spans the entire bay - we could see all of Haifa around to Akko. The food was outstanding as... More

We had one of our best meals in Israel here....don't miss the great salads and grilled Calamari and Israeli fish. The restaurant is located right across from the Stella Maris Church (tell taxi driver to take you to the church location) right at the top of the cable car station so the view of Haifa harbor is spectacular. Be sure... More

This place has a beautiful view of Haifa Bay. The food is excellent typical Israeli midlle eastern cuisine with a fast service. There are lot of salad starters, hummus, etc and then wide selection of entrees. It is the favorite place of my American guests.

This place has a beautiful view of Haifa Bay. The food is rather basic but excellent, so is the service. It's my favorite place in Haifa. WARNING: don't stumble into the CORAL restaurant that is also in Stella Marris in Haifa, just above KALAMARIS. The Coral is not nearly as good. From street level you have to walk down about... More

If you go to Kalamaris, you will feel welcomed and at home. The staff give you their undivided attention and are very friendly even when the place is full. The food is really good and the salads yummy. However, they are too generous with mayonnaise on salads so beware if you are not a great fan. The view is spectacular.... More

we went as a group of 4, sharing entrees and mains. Service was great, waiters were helpful finding our way around the menu. Lovely seafood and Mediteranean accompaniments. Finished with coffees and complimentary ice creams. Very enjoyable evening. I will be taking others back there.

Undoubtedly the restaurant has the most beautiful view in Haifa. The whole Haifa bay is in front of your eyes. The atmosphere is very pleasant and unlike many restaurants in Israel, the acoustics pleasant. The food is great no comments. Service nice and not pushy. We spent a nice and tasty evening.
