Bayat Restaurant


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2019 Winner

Location and contact

Bayat is a great little restaurant, with some tasty dishes, a young, lively atmosphere and a big selection of alcohol (the place is owned by Christians, hence the free-flowing alcohol - including Taibe beer, the only real Palestinian beer). Choose to sit outside if it's not too hot (and join the smokers), or sit inside/at the bar. With friendly and tri-lingual staff (Arabic, English, Hebrew), this is an excellent place to take some respite from the tourist trail in Nazareth.

Freekeh Salad is incredible, the main dishes we tried were also really great but of you have to choose one thing i would go for the salad! Enough for one meal and delicious

A great restaurant with friendly staff located in the heart of Nazareth where old city starts. The food is very good and sitting outside near Mary's Well is just amazing.

Good location, friendly staff and large portions. Decent value for money- around £10 - £15 per head for a main plus drink. We used our Abraham Hostel voucher and got 10% off the bill

My husband and I went for lunch and were surprised with how big the portion sizes were. The salad I got was amazing! Intense flavors that blended perfectly. You will not be disappointed with a visit here.

Nice terrace, good service. I had a local dish with tomatoes, eggplant, onions and chick peas, very good. They also have pizzas with a heavy dough. We were sitting outside but the bar inside looked pretty nice.
