We had a truly magical experience here for dinner while we stayed in Magdala. Our waiter Alex was wonderful. He was really fun. But he could not out do the food. Best meal on our entire trip. I would definitely eat here again!

Outstanding Middle Eastern food, beautifully presented, in a great setting. While somewhat on the expensive side, they also did their best to accommodate our two-year-old grand-daughter.

We enjoyed a great meal with fine wine and excellent service. Parking ample outside and we choose the steps but there is a lift. A recommendation is the fish, fresh and delightful.
