“A welcome break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Randomly selected this restaurant and found it a pleasant surprise. Food was quite good and service was not rushed.

Appetizers just about constituted a meal by themselves.

Bill for three of us was 200 NIS, which made this a moderately and reasonably priced restaurant.

Portions were enormous. In our case, lunch was between 2:30 and 4:30PM and none of us found any reason for dinner.

Service was friendly and efficient. The staff doesn't rush you, so if you are in a hurry or want to pick up the pace, you'll need to let them know.

Would I eat there again? Yes.

“אכלתי ביום שישי בערב והשרות מאד חובבני .איטי,אם אתה לא מעשן נרגילה אתה לא קיים.האוכל יקר ומוגש בחובבנות ללא הסברים.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

I had dinner with 2 additional people .We wanted to celebrate the New year with a nice dinner.The place for non smoker was inside as all the other areas where designated for Nargila smokers..the service was poor.The prices too high for the value.and no explanations regarding any of the foods ordered was provided by the waiter.It seemed as we were not of any interest to the stuff.Some of the food was served after long nugging .The mesh potato was made from a ready made dry staff
I recommend that one should avoid the place unless he is interested in Nargila smoking on a Friday evening and bad service

“Turist Trap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Ive read the reviews here and either they are from the owners himself or they are talking about a different place.

The food is expensive and without justification - it's ok. No more. No less. 4 euros for an arab coffee which you will get "on the house" in any other restaurant is outrages.

Staff isnt great. Had to remind them about bringing plates. Clean glasses.

We saw a couple that was so unsatisfied with the food that they just left everything on the table. Payed and left. I could understand why.

“Great Restaurant - Excellent and Professional !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

I know almost all the resturants in Haifa. I think this restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Haifa for years.
Good prices and modest. in addition its location is perfect and is in the top of the German Colony (near the Bahai Gardens), good service and the atmosphere was there like in heaven with classical music.
I realized they opened a tabun kitchen and cook Middle Eastern food (especially Arab), there are also where children's games so it won't be boring for kids, I recommend to families and couples on this restaurant.

I recommend everyone who visit haifa to visit and enjoy this restaurant.

Excellent Food and Service, it's not normal Place.. it’s the Warm place for families couples and Business meeting . you will find anything you want for a lunch drink also children play-place.

Warm Atmosphare day & night.... also I like the Free Wii-Fii
