“Ok Restaurant. Nothing else”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2014

Average restaurant. The burger that I ordered was a bit overcooked and my friend beef was OK, nothing to call home and talk about it. It's a clean place across the Sea of Galilee. It was OK for a meal for the night.

“Friendly Staff, Good food, and the salad....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

If you want a nice place to eat, reasonably priced, excellent service, good food, and salad that keeps coming about 8-10 different kinds, then El Rancho in Tiberius is the place. First visit that won't be our last. If you are a little tighter budget - you can order 1-2 appetizers, and share a meal, with the salads and bread you won't go away hungry.

“Much better than expected - make sure you’re hungry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

When we were looking for somewhere to eat in Tiberias, we had walked past El Rancho, dismissing it as a steak house. However, we returned when a local shop keeper recommended we give it a try. It turned out that his recommendation was a very good one.
Our waiter spoke excellent English, having apparently been born in Leeds (moved to Israel when he was young) and was extremely helpful, friendly and efficient.
We have never seen so much food!!! The main course included a huge mezze and being on the Sea of Galilee, we each ate a grilled St Peter’s Fish, which was wonderful (and huge).
Overall, a most enjoyable evening.

Great food. We had beef steak and chicken dishes. They were both very good. The staff is very friendly and very personable. Very reasonably priced. I highly recommend it!

“Great food and knowlegable host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

We have loved the fantastic salads and meat dishes served and the gracious service. We were also impressed by the selection of wines and the general atmosphere in the place. Our host Shy Baker helped guide us in our selections into a true culinary experience.
