My favorite restaurant in Haifa does it again

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... read 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.

Kalamaris is the restaurant that my family and I enjoy visiting again and again. Although it is located in a very touristic spot, it is NOT a tourist trap. Far from it. This is a family owned and operated restaurant, the staff is friendly and professional. It is an excellent seafood restaurant but not just. If you are not into... More

Great view. Great food. Great atmosphere. Amazing Staff. A mix of cultures and flavors. You must insist on sitting by the window. A complementary dessert just makes it Perfect. A must when visiting Haifa.

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
