“Excellent in every aspect! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

We stopped here for lunch and were really surprised how excellent the food, atmosphere and service was. It's a beautiful space with tables spread far enough apart to enjoy table conversation. I took photos of the excellent appetizers, and main dish.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Two originally from TLV, we were interested to try the foods made by chef Hamudi Okala from Migdal (2 hours drive with HW 6), after seeing him on a TV show. After arriving we asked to talk with the chef, who recommended us we try several homemade style starters that followed with one main dish to share. All portions were authentic to the Arab local cuisine, served in big (may be too big) proportion, appetizing, decorative and tastefully . We were proud to know the chef by person as he is a very communicative person. Service was quite and excellent, things I know from Europe. Be aware, prices as high as in Tel Aviv

“Refined version of local cousine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

There are not so many restaurants in Israel where you can try a typical Levantine dishes, may be just a few in Haifa or Acre, and few more in small druze and arab villages in the Galilee. Magdalena provides this opportunity - with a touch of finesse, showing the essence of the local kitchen, sparing its excesses. Add to this a nice ambiance, a view to the Sea of Galilee - and professionally trained waiters, something which is quite rare for the Israeli restaurants.

If you decided to give it a try - leave a place for a dessert, the local sweets are the most intriguing part of the dining culture.
