We arrived mid afternoon when the place was empty, but were able to have good coffee and tea plus enjoy the sea views. Highly recommended.

The position is fantastic, sitting over the sea as the sun sets, wow. On the other hand the meal was just OK the dishes were all good but not exceptional, the waiter was a bit pushy for my taste and the prices were what you would expect from a restaurant in this position. The acoustics on the other hand were... More

An outstanding restaurant, with an extraordinary view of the Mediterranean sea, located at the old town of Caesarea. Excellent food, great attention. Everything matches to make an excellent experience of your meals.

The food was delicious. We had fish dishes, Organic Bass and Whole grilled Denis which were cooked beautifully and were really tasty. The service was excellent and very personal. I have food issues and the waiter was extremely kind and attentive. He went to check with the chef which dishes were best for me or could be altered to suit... More

We visited there for our anniversary. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very nice. We got a table with a view to the sea. The service was good and when i told the waitress that it was our anniversary we got a sorbet on the house.

We paid to much for dishes that were so undignifying small. For one dish we got 4 pieces of badly fried calamari that cost like a main dish. Absolutely shameful. It felt like the chef is looking to save a few bucks on our backs by serving us a third of a meal while we paid full price.

We really liked the food, which was Mediterranean with some fusion and creative Middle Eastern combinations, such as Burrata with pumpkin seeds or ice cream with tehina, silan (dates honey) and shaved halva. Fish was fresh and made to our liking. The view from the restaurant can't be beat, on a clear day or at night.

I went there by chance with a friend and it was so good that I visited several times since, with family. The seafood is fresh and prepared in innovative ways. The view of the sea and old city of Cesarea are absolutely stunning. If you go for a specific dish make sure to call in advance since the fresh ones... More

We came kind of by chance, 2 Israeli and 3 guests who appreciate good food. We were so happy from the food and the service we came again the following day. Chef is charming and creative, friendly staff and superb food.
