“Poor!”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Food was poor and the service worse, or none! The waiter did not even speak to us, he was really stange. There was a waitress who seemed much nicer, though. Thefact that the tax was not included in the prices was strange.

“Aggressive waiter.”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

This place is located on a pedestrian street that leads down to the waterfront. Food is fairly average, as are prices. Service starts out kinda slow and offhand, and gets slower and aggressive as your meal progresses. The culmination is having the waiter inviting you to add a tip to your credit card payment, then asking for it in cash, and finally becoming very, very nasty indeed when you decline to leave a tip in light of the very poor service received and the fact that they've already billed you for a 12.5% service charge! And yes, in Europe we do at times actually *not* leave a tip if service is aggressive, offhand, slow and generally unfriendly -- as it was at this joint.

“A Place To Eat”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Great location in the main strip of restaurants in Tiberias, but I wouldn't say there is anything very unique about it. Nice large outdoor seating area.
