Terrible experience Terrible experience. Do not go there. Bad service, no respect to customers, sitting arrangement was outside under the sun with no shade, food arrived late, cold, not coordinated with the other partner, the side dish arrived after one has already eaten the main...coarse. The food does not pay tribute to the famous chef. Restaurant management sucks. It looks like it is all only public relations.More

Amazing restaurant! We ordered several dishes and everything was cooked perfectly, truly delicious! Definitely the best food I’ve had in Haifa. Excellent service. Highly recommended.

Previously, four of us went to eat here and everything was totally perfect, so I booked this for our wedding anniversary on Friday. First of all, before anything, I must say that the restaurant crew are totally delightful, friendly and warm. However, we were squashed...into the corner, next to a party of 9 really loud people, the restaurant was way over-crowded for the amount of staff to handle, IMHO. Our first courses of shrimps (frozen) and scallops were delicious. However, my steak came out COLD and way before my husband's meat stew (which I really don't understand at all), no apology offered and it was brought back (again before my husband's dinner), slightly warmer, with the sauce missing and a rather peculiar texture. I found this to be extremely unprofessional - I came out to eat with my husband, not watch him. What I really found mystifying is why they couldn't time my steak to be ready and HOT when all they had to do was serve out a portion of the stew. The crack pie was good, not as good as in other places in Tel Aviv. Won't be returning, there are far too many new restaurants in Haifa to try out these days.More

We arrived 2 pairs of friends on the night of the holiday of Sukkot. The restaurant was packed with diners. Upon arrival we received menus on A4 paper printed that day ... The waitress arrived a number of times and ended up helping us with...the choice of dishes even though her explanations were not really focused. We ordered a carpaccio, a shrimp pan and two servings of Armenian treats. For dessert we ordered Cheesecake, Crack-Pie and a Kremshnit cake. The food was really excellent, each dish included excellent flavors and sauces and for us the dish of the shrimp won ... In terms of the latest dishes, the Crack-Pie is simply amazing ... One thing needs improvement for my taste. The dishes arrived in a short time, but likely. Later (when we realized that the quantity was not large) we asked for the house focaccia, for the focaccia took a long time to arrive. Plus, when they brought us a pitcher of cold water they forgot to bring glasses until we mentioned at least twice ... Too badMore

Dedicated to Danny the owner and the staff: you guys nailed it! Perfect location excellence in kindness and services, well adapted menu and specials. Good blend of spanish Italian and middle east touches with a respected free touch . Matching wine selections and a casual...atmosphere. Not overpri ed. I would only suggest a more professional barman and less delay netween the order and first starters. Nevertheless we strongly recommend for any weekday and weekend evening. We had the Octopus and the special surprising raviollis. Well done and see you soon again. MAURICIOMore

We booked the table as a last minute decision on Friday night and luckily they had a table for us on the outside area. They were in full capacity when we arrived and yet, all the stuff were very nice, calm and welcoming. Bottom line...- the food is very good, the place is very nice and has a great vibe. The prices are very reasonable.More
