I had a amazing steak that was cooked perfectly! I was very surprised by the quality of meat. I think it could possibly be the best steak I've had in a restaurant.

Visited this pub a number of times. I believe The Bear is one of the oldest pubs in Haifa and I like it. The Samuel Adams draft beer is decent and the tasty bar food, good value. I like sitting outside on a warm evening with a cold beer and "people watching". However, if you are a sports fan, there... More

Stopped in for a drink and stayed for an early dinner. Great selection of drinks, nice outdoor seating, and some awesome music! Had the Fish & Chips and it was very good. Service was also very good, made for an excellent evening of drinks and conversation...

The Bear Pub is one of our favorites in Haifa. It is one of the oldest pubs in Haifa and has an eclectic menu which we always enjoy. They have a nice selection of beer, and we enjoy drinking and dining here. It’s the epitome of an old style pub filled with old dark wood. It can get very crowded... More

This place is a classic bar/restaurant. It has a decent selection of beers and food. The food is well prepared and reasonably priced. You can choose to sit inside or ouside on their deck, which is a smoking area but you won't be bothered. Service is very quick and efficient. All in all, a nice place for a beer and... More

Found this little pub that served me a delicious burger in an unusual bun. The server suggest I turn the burger upside down. That way the burger would not come out from the bun when I bit into it. Price wise, it was cheap compared to back home in Montréal.
