Description: Little Tiberias is a quality chef-restaurant with a menu featuring gourmet French Mediterranean cuisine. The restaurant is located inside a building that forms part of the ancient city wall of Tiberias and that dates back to Roman times. Its special setting, as well as the beautifully planned interior, grant Little Tiberias an exclusive European atmosphere, like a little French Riviera on the shore of the Sea of Galilee.The restaurant is family-owned, and was opened by Rafi, the head of the family and the founder. The whole family are culinary specialists, with generations of acquired knowledge. They are headed by the restaurant's chef, David Oudiz, whose kitchen produces excellent original dishes - starters, appetizers, soups and pastas, and succulent main dishes of fish, meat and seafood. Try our entrecote beef steak (300 g), beef Stroganoff (250 g fillet of beef), shrimp martini (with a sauce of cream, garlic and basil, topped with Parmesan) and a whole range of fine dishes. Our menu features a selection of desserts and many quality wines. As befits a beautifully designed, romantic restaurant in a tourist destination, the clientele of Little Tiberias is very varied - guests are of all ages, foreign and Israeli tourists, couples, and regular clients from the city and the surrounding region who enjoy their dining experience and come back again and again. The atmosphere is relaxed, with a blend of harmonious background music - classical jazz, romantic music, and popular hits. In the 1980s, the building housed a famous pub that was a major leisure attraction in Tiberias and for residents of the region. Later, an Italian restaurant was opened, but in recent years the site was renovated and improved. Some dishes on the menu (like our renowned steak with pepper and cream), remain as before, with all the tradition and know-how that the family accumulated. The restaurant, designed by architect Gadi Shamir, has two wings: the old, authentic wing, with beautiful wood elements of old telephone poles carved in classic style, with wooden wine racks, and a mural painted by the famous Tiberias-born artist - Amos Yaskil. The beautiful new wing is larger, and now offers a bar that's perfect for drinking wine and spirits, and for dining too. You can also sit on the spacious balcony, with its windows offering impressive views. We are happy to cater private events in a separate room.

About a week ago me and a good friend of my met after 35 years and decided to celebrate this event at the Little Tiberias restaurant. We ordered starters (chicken liver with toasts), salad, main course (shrimps in white wine souse for me and Denise fish on grill for the rest), a bottle of semi-dry white wine and a dessert. The service was good and quick and we were personally advised by the chef about the (excellent) choices. The menu is in Hebrew and English and they have also menu for the kids. The staff is English speaking too. All in all - 175$ including tip for 4 adults.
It was my 3-rd pleasant visit (including with little kids) to this restaurant. The place is clean, nicely decorated and has a great atmosphere.

Warning: if you dine in a good company the 2 hours might shrink into few minutes.....;-)

Enjoy,

Leon

This little spot is not to be missed if you are in Tiberias. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. We love to have Calamari wherever we go and always compare it to the "best we have ever had" and the Fried Calamari here is our new benchmark for the BEST! We actually went back a second time on this trip because we knew we would not be disappointed!

We went to this place on a Friday night. As you might know choices are very limited on this day. We ordered St. Peter's fish, lamb hamburger and spring chicken with reasonable prices. The fish is fresh, the lam burger was juicy, and the spring chicken was tender and with nice roasted veggies as side dish. If I have a chance coming back to Tiberias again, will definitely visit this place!

We ate here recently and were immediately disappointed by the service. We were the only people inside the restaurant yet were kept waiting then all but ignored when a large group of men came in. The food was ok and my partner was disappointed even though he's eaten there many times before and liked it. I don't think I'd bother with it again. Poor to average

The restuarant is one of the oldest resraurants in Tiberias, which specializes in fish and sea food. The atmosphere is amaizing and the crew will do there best for your satisfaction.

Don't miss the sea food spaghetti dish!
