The area could use a make over but this restaurant provided excellent service and good food. Location is perfect for outdoor dining.

Well cooked St Peter's fish with all the trimmings. Reasonable value. Loved the fact that the restaurant is built around the trees that have obviously been there a lot longer than the building.

Having lunch on the terrasse at the Galei Gil, looking out over the Sea of Galilee has to be one best things to do in Israel. The service is warm and friendly, the menu extensive and the quality excellent. Not to be missed.

We were in Tiberias for a week and sat on the waterfront at this restaurant 3 of the 7 nights trying different dishes. All excellent (have the fish fillets!) And always come with complimentary salads and bread. On a warm, balmy night, couldn't be better.

This is one of the nicest restaurants along the lakeside walkway, and therefore pretty popular. I'd suggest you book, to be on the safe side.
