We went to Avi's based on the recommendation of our hotel and it turned out to be one of the best meals of our trip to Israel. We sat outside as it was a beautiful night in May and the owner immediately came over to our table and introduced himself. We made a few special requests and he said "yes" to everything we asked. His daughter, Oshri, came over to take our orders and then stayed to discuss our trip and answer all of our questions about Israel. It turned out to be a very pleasant evening and, oh, did I mention that the food was wonderful? I would definitely return to Avi's if I ever have the opportunity to do so.

We went to Avi's with friends from our Gate1 group because we heard the food was the best in town. The staff were extremely helpful as the size of our group swelled and shrank and finally settled in. They offered us wonderful food to taste as we finally settled on one of the nightly specials at 90 shekels, just under $30, for a seafood dinner complete with a huge range of homemade salads including the best houmous I have ever eaten . And pita and garlic roaster pita. Avi himself came over to advise us and regale us with stories of previous visitors from overseas. The best surprise of the night was something they finally decided to call 'fish patties' - don't know how they were made, but what a taste thrill. Go there hungry!

We were at Avi's on May 8, 2013. There was a part of eight of us and the owner and his daughter, Oshri, instantly became friends. We ended up with large quantities of absolutely delicious food, with particularly fond memories of the lamb, but everything was wonderful. I couldn't say enough good things about this restaurant. For the price point, it was everything I would have expected and so much more. Was disappointed that we did not get an opportunity to go back to the restaurant during our trip but Avi and Oshri more than made up for that in a very special way, taking hospitality to a whole new level.

We chose this place based on previous reviews, and to be honest it was above and beyond all the reviews=) The food is amazing, the service is excellent! Avi's daughter Oshri was our server and words can not express how adorable and attentive she is. Avi himself joined us and the next thing you know we are invited to have dinner at Avi's house! This family made our experience in Tiberias one that we will never forget. I suggest when in Tiberias put Avi's on your list of places to visit, it's a must!

This family restaurant offers a warm, family atmosphere along with it's ample menu and good service.
My fellow travelers were especially impressed with the fish they ordered, and everything we orderd was tasty.
The good feeling, in addition to the food, came from the pleasant and attentive waitresses (Avi's daughter was one), and Avi the owner himself who went from table to table chatting with his guests.
We were also given complementary coffee and dessert after our meal.
All in all a really great place for dinner in Tiberias.
Our thanks, again, to Avi!
