We went out for our birthday meal. Food was excellent. Very tasty and appealing. Once they took our order service was good. But... The room itself is unattractive. Very noisy because of the people talking and music. The other but is expensive. Tel Aviv prices in the north, in a poorly decorated room.

The waitress was able to answer on all of our menu related questions. She was super professional and very kind. The restaurant has a great atmosphere to it and a simple... More

Every dish was spectacular, the potato, calamari and the pitta with the fish on top absolutely delicious. Great service and we would defiantly come back.

This is absolutely one of the leading restaurants in Israel. Excellent tastes, precision and service. Amazingly it can all be found in a small place at the north of Israel. Highly recommended!!

To start with, the food is indeed special and very tasty. The only problem is the combination of very expensive dishes and very small portions. I'm willing to pay more for good food, but please don't expect me to stay both hungry and pleased after the visit...

Excellent food, service and atmosphere, We ate light appetizers: beet root with greens and cauliflower tabule, Both were light, fresh and excellent. Main courses were Beef Filet with potato cake and gnocchi with butchers meat and mashrooms. First time and for sure will come again.

This is the second time we visit the restaurant. The first time was this summer and we had the opportunity to go there for a second time in December 2016. For a Danish couple the restaurant in a old staple with fire in the fireplace is a bit like coming home - when the weather in Israel in December is... More

Very good food, super expensive though. service was very poor although the crew was making effort to be good. it's the little details that make a difference. we were recommended by the waiter to get the special lamb spare ribs ($70), she said it is enough for at least two people. the dish came in and it was unbelievably small...

We for dinner following the recommendation of the owner of a hotel in the same village. The place is small and intimate. It is located in the backyard of one of the village houses. Actually it looks like a renovated old chicken coop. No doubt, it supplies its customers with a supreme culinary pleasure whether it's pasta, seafood or meat.... More
