“My new football home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Having returned to live in Israel in the north, was looking for a place to watch my beloved Arsenal on a regular basis.
Found the perfect venue.
Good beer, plenty of choice. Tasty food. Not expensive. Friendly welcome from barman, Niv.
Pleasant ambience.
Highly recommended

“A good pub in Carmel Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is a very popular place in Carmel Center, and during the weekends might be packed.
Not the cheapest of the pubs, but they well worth the money - in the terms of food quality and quantity, it's one of the better pubs in Haifa; the choice of drinks is not bad either. Plus, the atmosphere is very pleasant and the interior gets you into the right mood :)

“Get involved with the locals, and still feel at home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Very nice staff, good bartenders and real quality of pub's food. You can try some israeli beers and wines(of course, not only Israeli:-), and get a good mediterranean cuisine in a fair price.
A real gem in the middle of the Carmel center.

“Good place to hang out on a Friday night or any other night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

It was fun, food was good, drinks were good. So it is a good place if you are looking for just a comfortable hang around. I had a great time, but that was more due to my company and less to the place. The drinks were on the expensive side for my taste. And as far as cocktails go, I had some that were a lot better elsewhere on this planet. The food while simply in choice was surprisingly tasty. If you need parking, it is a problem, but if you don't, it is smack around the corner of a bus stop where you can get from and to almost any corner of the city.
