“A terrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Kimel in Tel Aviv is an excellent restaurant.
Kimel in the Gilboa shares most the menu, but is run so badly that the overall experience is terrible.
The service is way below standard (dirty dishes, and more incidents); the food is either pre-heat or made but an inexperienced staff. The prices are similar to Tel Aviv.

“Never disappointing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We have eaten there at least 5 times during the last year and never were disappointed by the excellent food quality. The 99 NIS business lunch is a very good deal!
