Review of Habayit

Restaurant details
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The approach is classic, through the narrow, winding roads of Northern Israel, bringing you to an Arab village on a mountain with amazing views.
Habayit, btw, means "The House" in Hebrew, and it is just that. This is a Arab Israeli family who converted their house to a restaurant. All home-made authentic cuisine cooked and served by family members: husband and wife and their seven childen.
There's no menu, you're simply served many dishes in the middle of the table: salads, appetizers, soup, main dishes, side dishes, pitchers of fresh cold water and date juice! You then relocate downstairs for desert: tea or cardamom coffee with baklava. Prices are per person and reasonable, considering it's AYCE.
I loved it the first time, and kinda loved it it the second time. I'm not anxious to go again :)
Family minded, best with big groups, expect the same. Try to visit the neighboring Israeli artist village, Ein Hod (this was in Ein Hud), to make the most of the trip.

The restaurant offers authentic Arab food of the region and not the standard fare offered by most so-called Arab restaurants. The service is friendly and helpful. The view is outstanding.
