“An Israeli gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

This is a unique cultural center with a restaurant. The building is a unique example of architecture that houses a gallery, a stage, a movie theater and a restaurant at the southern end of Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee.) The restaurant has interesting atmosphere with a view of the lake. The food was good and plentiful.

“The Crown Jewel of the Sea of Galilee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This magnificent building serves as the culture center for the Jordan Valley with an art gallery, two 3-D movie theaters and a lovely restaurant overlooking the southern side of the Sea of Galilee. The architecture is gorgeous and provides a perfect framework for the natural beauty of the lake.

“A great location - disappointing food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The review is about the restaurant, not the cultural centre where it is located.
We were at the restaurant on a busy day and the service was not brilliant.
We asked for something specific, but our request was ignored.
The food was nothing to be excited about.
There is a nice terrace with a wonderful view, but it was full of smokers, without a place for non-smokers, so we were forced to sit inside. This is a violation of the Israeli law, but we came to eat not to organise the restaurant.
The menu was quite limited and most meals are based on fish, which makes sense being located on the shore of the Lake of Tiberias.
The prices were higher than one would expect from a similar restaurant.
In the area are much better restaurants, even in the shopping centre across the road are some.
For us it is going to be a one time event.

“What a beautiful view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Beit Gavriel is located at the southern tip of the sea of Galilee.
It includes an art gallery, a nice café and one of the best views of the sea of Galilee in the area.
There's a nice little promenade along the coast of the lake with a lovely garden to match.
During the evenings, the local cinema features recent blockbusters for a discounted price.
