Large group of 7 buses touring with overnights in Bethlehem, Tiberius and Jerusalem. Lunch at a different place every day. This was by far the worst. Very nice menu and clean restrooms. However, that is where the positives end. Touted their St. Paul fist which is local tilapia. Offered limited menu due to large group which is reasonable. Offered filet for those of those who did not want head-on-then not available. Fish cooked hard enough to drive nails in a cross. Salad offering without dressing. One small dish of french fries for 4 people; normally would be one serving in the States. Would not bring more when asked. Desert consisted of 7 dates for 4 people. A number of people refused to eat and sent their order back. To top it off, it was almost double what we were charged at other restaurants for more plentiful and better food.

We did a full Israeli spread with probably 10 different small dishes and loved each and every dish. Particular rec: fried cauliflower with tahini.

We had lunch in this beautiful setting. The hummus and the garlic hummus were delicious. Enjoyed St.Peters Fish as well. Staff was great and spoke English.

We enjoyed the shared fish platter for dinner so much, we came back for lunch the next day. The Illy coffee was the best latte in Israel so far! The view over Lake Galilee is beautiful, too.

This restaurant is on the banks of the Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilea), It is well maintained & used by many tourist buses.
We arrived just before 6 coaches of tourists. Inspite of the large amount of customers the restaurant was well staffed & our meal arrived quickly.
We didn't eat the fish but the dishes we ate were all very tasty.
The menu was quite simple.
Our dessert was very under-whelming. It was tasty but expensive & poor value for money.
