“Good food but way overpriced.”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Food: main courses where very good and interesting. Other than that the rest was average.
Owner and main chef provided excellent seevice. Other than that, rest of the service was less than average (4 restaurant personnel talked to us, without any coordination...)

“very good restaurant”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Good food , great service , very accomodating chef (Shahar) he prepared a special vegetarian dish not on the menu .
On the down side - the menu has only a few dishes and the food is very expensive .

“Dissapointment - but still the best restaurant in Mitzpe-Ramon”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Expected a very good chef-restaurant. Prices were definitely in this category.
Location is in an industrial building at Mitzpe-Ramon industrial area. Internal decoration is not much better. No privacy, and be quite loud depending on the nearby table and guests.
Some of the dishes were clearly good, not exceptional. Service can be better.

“As far as French restaurant as it gets”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

One of those places were at 8:30pm we were the only couple in the restaurant... If you're in the area just take a glance at the place before sitting in, the food matches the decor. Dinner at Beresheet is not good but it's still better than Chez Eugene which feels like a tourist trap.

We tried 2 starters and 2 entrees, starters were alright but nothing special, entrees were really bad. The Chez Eugene sharwama is not what I've seen called shawarma in any place. It consists of strangely pink chicken pieces mixed with whole fava beans and sitting on some microwaved tortilla covered in tahini. It just doesn't work. Lamb chops were low quality meat and not frenched (oh the irony), they still charge 100NIS+ for them.

Funny thing: They had to switch 'waitress' or whatever the two girls in jeans and sneakers are called because one was under 18 and couldn't take a alcoholic drink order.


They seriously need to consider a relaunch and revamp food, decor, service and prices. Looks like the put some money and effort in building the place but the concept is off.
