Ascending the dirty cable cars to the top of the hill it started to rain, upon exiting we saw 50 or so kids all queued up waiting to return. Knowing it would be 30+ mins before we could go back down the hill we decided to duck into the restaurant. Big Mistake. We needed a minute to get our bearings... More

Colleagues recommended Kalamaris to us and said it was not to be missed during a visit to Haifa! The view from the restaurant over the Bay of Haifa was indeed amazing, and our waiter was more or less attentive (he seemed to spend more time at tables with local, regular customers). However, we found the food to be mediocre at... More

I come here with my family once in a while, and they never miss. The view is always spectacular, the service pleasant and efficient, and the food is excellent. The fish can be ordered in grilled or fried, take what the waiter recommends. The steaks are generally very good, although not fantastic and served in the old fashion way they... More

Although we made a reservation and came a few minutes early, it took them about half an hour to sit us down. At the same other people who seemed to know the staff were seated long before us. It also took them a very long time to take our order, and our food was brought out over quite a bit... More

I have been here many times. Good service and plenty of options to choose from. You can select from the menu or pick from the carousel. The rice was perfect and the fish were fresh. Overall, it's simple and fantastic sushi.

Today, once more, Kalamaris proved to be the perfect place to take your guests. Excellent service, abundance, main courses quality and an astounding view of the Mediterranean Sea. Highly recommend. I shall return.
