My spouse and I visited Magdalena during our trip to Tiberias on Saturday. The restaurant is located in a gas station complex, but once you enter the restaurant, you forget about the location right away. The service was superb, the waiters were professional. The food...More

The venue looks unpromising from street-side but the chefs and waiters totally deliver the goods. Great and knowledgeable service, pleasing decor and some memorable dishes. The cauliflower starter is one we won’t forget! Such clever and subtle flavour hints with a wonderful mango and mild...More

Treated ourselves to this Arab restaurant while on vacation in Israel. Delicious vegetarian fare. Fries cauliflower isn’t so much fried as it is sautéed; and it was divine. Wine list is heavily Israeli and Delicious. Excellent service (rare in Israel). Would return.

The food was imaginative but indifferent in flavour. The service was good. The atmosphere was pleasant. The prices charged were ridiculously high for the quality of food offered. Value of money? Very poor!

We had a group dinner here.Food was good but not to my taste. The staff worked hard to serve us efficiently and courteously. It is known to be the best restaurant in the Tiberius region.

We dined on a selection of starters (6 in all), none of which were overtly gluten containing even if some were accompanied by bread. Main course dishes were fish or meat and if they had gluten containing side dishes, don't... More
