“This is a hideaway place to go to”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

Enjoyed the place in spite of the fact that we are veggies, found what to eat.
One feels like he is in a nice park, / greenhouse( the place was a business of selling plants, trees etc. before...)

“Great atmosphere, very good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

This restaurant offers a sort of countryside-nature-"good old Israel" style, meaning a geart atmosphere both for families and couples. the food is very good: I had breakfast and a vegeterian dish.
service is probably the weak spot, but it is not too bad and it did not stop me from coming again with freinds and family.

“Very nice outdoor dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The place is very nice. It is in a garden with a peaceful pleasant atmosphere. Indoor sitting is also available (nicely decorated interior) however I always prefer.sitting outside on nice days. The breakfast buffet has a very large selection. There is also ample parking spce (which is a great plus in Raanana). The only problem is the price which I think is a bit high.

“Excellent Garden Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Lunch with friends on a perfect 20 degree C spring day. Garden setting was perfect. For appetizers, chicken liver pate, grilled eggplant - both top-notch. Main courses salmon - tasty, beef medallions - good cut of meat, cooked perfectly but the sauce could have been better, mashed potatoes very good. House wine and coffee quite good. Service fine.
Atmosphere well wort the moderately expensive price, but check the weather before you pay a visit.
We all intend to come again in the future.

“Stay away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Service terrible !!!
Food was served cold and we had to return it twice.
Steak was like chewing gum.
Prices average.
They do a good breakfast, but if is a meal, then stay away from this place.
I try to write good reviews, but occasionly i find myself writing terrible things and this was the case here.
Only good thing was parking.
