For heaven´s sake it is Israel. Good food is sort of a given. Big Ben is not directly on the coastline so one would expect super cool service. But no! Impatient taking of our order. Then we had to wait 5 minutes for the waiter...More

Excellent food. Before the meal they brought out salads and pita complementary. I ordered the fish and chips, my husband had the pasta Neapolitan and the kids had schnitzel with fries. All meals were fresh and prepared well.
