It has the best location a restaurant could offer- on the beach facing the water. Beautiful!! A place like this should be crowded and it was empty. The reason is they charge way too much. The wine by the glass was one of the entry price level (low) they charge per glass twice than they buy the bottle. No reason... More

This place as even around for years for a reason. The food is very good , though I would stay away from the Sushi (I've had better Sushi is Israel). The starter and mains were very good, inspirational and balanced. The deserts are very, very good especially the chocolate bar. The only thing I didn't like was the fact the... More

Compared to other Herzlia restaurants, this was not busy at all. Perhaps it was a reflection of the prices. The seaweed salad to start was ok. I chose a starter dish of pasta as a main course size, for which the yuzu sauce was far too sweet. Fellow diners ordered sushi which looked good.

Al Hamayim isn't cheap, so try to go for the business lunch if you just want to try it out. However, this place is near my work & home, so I go there often for lunch or dinner. Despite being quite pricey, the food is very good and worth it. The staff are friendly and the ambience - especially al... More

Slightly confusing to find, but a brilliant find. Not the cheapest restaurant in Herzlia, but certainly one of the best. VERY good fish dishes, plenty of selection of starters, and rather more international than Israeli in style. I've been there twice and would go again.

The dinner is also good, I usually have the grilled fish and my son has the sushi which he really likes. The service is good and if it's a... More

Everything was very tasty. We shared appetizers which were al excellent, especially the calamari. The sushi was amazing. But the highlight of the evening was the desert. We shared three items which were all fabulous, but the peanut butter chocolate was an absolute must. The views are amazing if you sit outside. It is the best seating in Herziliya.
