“This goes down as one of the best culinary days of my life-really!”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Earlier today the boss and I went to Paulina (ice cream heaven) in Eilat and were looking forward to dinner at Pastory. We'd tried to get a table last night but it was fully booked so we made a reservation for tonight. So glad we did.
We had a table outside (simple sidewalk, nothing fancy-no great view) but a good spot for a touch of people watching accompanied by a 17 year-old guitarist who 'doodled' beautifully on an electric pickup acoustic guitar: an ideal musical accompaniment.
Ariel, our server, was knowledgeable, friendly and diligent. We drank an Italian pinot grigio and the boss chose a stone baked tuna pizza. I almost went for a spinach and goat's cheese pizza, but having seen a bowl of what looked like home made fettuccine I opted for the fettuccine verdura; a superb, simple creation of light, perfectly cooked pasta with a sauce of asparagus, artichokes, garlic, olive oil, parsley and basil - all beautifully combined.
Somehow the boss found room for dessert (more chocolate!), actually a nutella mousse kind of affair, which Ariel said that if he didn't like it, she'd pay for it! NO CHANCE!! He polished it off in short order...
At the end of the meal I asked for the menu again (I wanted to check the ingredients of the pasta sauce). We were swiftly joined by Pastory's manager, who told us how he came to be there (a Hungarian who'd spent 8 years in hospitality in the Cayman islands). Not only was he happy to chat (and we were happy to listen and join in), he also listed the ingredients.
Long and short, a fabulous dinner topping off the best culinary day of my life.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We chose this restaurant solely based its high rating on Tripadvisor and not surprisingly, we also found this to be one of the best restaurants in Eilat. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and an Italian Trattoria style décor, a bit tacky in my taste, but reasonable. ALL the food we ordered was excellent. We started with focaccia straight out of the oven served with three tasty dips, and then had pasta , pizza and ravioli. All were just outstanding. Service was attentive and fast, not overly friendly, just correct. The restaurant has a reasonable choice of wines and those we tasted were very good. Our children also really enjoyed the food and would like to come back in the future.
We did find a considerable mistake on the bill (it correctly stated that we had had a glass of wine, but we were charged for a bottle or something like it). Thus, I would recommend checking your bill when you get it.

“Great restaurant, great food, very good service, very noisy ”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

We ate in this restaurant and it was good, the food was delicious, but much more than that was the service, our waiter was honest enough to tell us that he think our order was enough for us, and every time he saw our glasses is a bit empty, he came to fill it up, the food was great too but like any other Eilat places it was very crowded and full of families and kids, overall it was great

“One of the best!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

We arrived here for the third time, and we knew we going to get excellent meal. Our waiter Liron was so nice and we got great service.
This time we ordered for entree Pizza Margherita, Soup of the day - garlic and cream, and Caprese salad with cherry tomatoes in very unique presentation.
For main dishes we ordered sweet potato gnocchi.
All arrived very fast!
We defiantly will come back. :)
