“A very special athmosphere, excellent food , a little overpriced.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

We had a very pleasant experience at 'the last refuge".
The scene is romantic ,pleasant and remained very eighties, which is not a bad thing.
The food is excellent , especially the fish and sea friut, which is their specialties.
I would expect some aperitive goodies and a basket of good bread with the entries, as used in the eighties, and was disappointed they came not.
The service is good , the bottle of wine comes with a champaniere .
They also gracefully ordered a taxi to take us back to the hotel.
All in one, a very enjoyable experience.
Go for it!

“Extremely rude Manager”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

We arrived at an empty large restaurant and the guy at the front desk asked us if we had a reservation.We thought it was a joke as there was none at the restaurant yet he felt the need to inform us that we should have booked?? Haha.anyway the meal was pretty good and the waiter was fine.i gave the front desk guy my visa debit card to pay the bill.He returned almost shouting at me that it was refused.I asked him if he had put in that it was a debit card instead of credit card and he was just so awful.we have travelled a lot but I've rarely met anyone in the service industry (which we both work in ourselves ) so rude.we gave our credit card and no problem but he almost threw the card back at us.wow.an incredible experience .beware of guy with bleached blonde hair at the last refuge!

“A hidden gem”

Almost next door to our hotel, we found this lovely restaurant 2 days before we came home! The food and service were excellent and we ate here twice. Great fresh fish dishes and helpful enthusiastic waiting staff.

“Tasty but salty & expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

I had the black pasta with seafood which was swimming with calamari & a few prawns. The accompanying relish & dips were good. The staff were friendly & helpful. Expensive.

“An Eilat landmark. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Has been here since I can remember (30 years). Over the years its had ups and downs but managed to maintain its reputation.
None of the fish and seafood are from the Red Sea, all are brought in from the Mediterranean. I had the lavrak (sea bass) grilled whole. All the grilled fish are also offered as a fillet. It was grilled perfectly with butter and garlic.
A bit pricey even for seafood. But it is a good restaurant which is appropriate for a special night out.
