“Very good restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very tasty food, but not only:
1) The atmosphere in the restaurant is great - although there are a lot of people, it is not too noisy.
2) Not waiting too long for the food.
3) A big variety.
4) Kosher food (not important to anyone, but for some people it is).
5) Very good food. Really good!

I definitely think that in Beer-Sheva, it is one of the bests, if not THE best.

We go there from time to time.

“"too"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

too expensive,too dark,too noisy,too strange of a location (hard to find parking). And-used to be better before it went kosher which was an odd decision seeing at is was always full on Friday nights-as there are few choices in Beersheva for a Friday night out. Sorry-guys-bad decision!

“Good mix of cuisines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I was surprised by the different cuisines on offer at Arabica - the name suggested to me traditionally Arabic food, but there appeared to be a good mix of Asian and Italian thrown into the mix. As a vegetarian in a kosher restaurant the choices are limited, but there was more than one veggie option, which is a novelty in many places in the world! The food is lovely and the portions are huge!
Arabica is designed and lit more like a bar than a restaurant and with the music playing too has a very modern sociable vibe. Would go back.

“Used to be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Arabica used to be a REALLY good restaurant until they turned KOSHER. now they only serve meat, the atmosphere deteriorated and is not as pleasant as it used to be (now it's much louder, big groups of people).

It's a nice place to go out to (looks classy) and expensive. but you don't really get your money's worth, imho.

“Nice place”

This is a good restaurant in the heart of Beer Sheva's old city. Good food, good service, nice atmosphere.
