Great service and wonderful meal. Avi greeted us at the door and provided witty banter and excellent service the entire evening. We really enjoyed the meal and restaurant thoroughly. Thanks for having us!

Absolutely worth paying a visit. The owner was so very friendly to us, we had a free starter, and the food was more than we could eat. Good place. Interieur is cafe style, and it is not luxurious at all, but very good food.

We were roaming around looking for place to eat and found this in an "alley" with other restaurants. Its family-run with Dad clearly being the boss. He's a bit gruff, but so are most Israelis until you get to know them. The salads were great and as always, too much food. It's worth finding.

Don't be put off by the exterior. This place is a winner. We were tired and dusty from schlepping and this splendid oasis provided hummus and pita a-plenty, along with cold drinks, good service, and generally really good food. Definitely worth a visit.

A good meat restaurant featuring mid-east cuisine plus juicy entrecote steak. Price range is attractive to visitors on a budget.

I cannot express enough accolades for this restaurant which I experienced on the occasion of my birthday - the food and particularly the sea bass was exceptionally tasty, the service outstanding, and all orchestrated by the owner, Avi whose demeanor and concern and attention to detail makes each customer welcome. Truly a place to include on your list of restaurants... More

A very noisy visit because of all the guests. But very authentic and therefore great. The food was ok, the homemade humus especially.

I took my family to a short two day visit to the Sea of Galilea with an overnight in Tiberias. We looked for a good place to dine and liked the reviews in this place. It was a 3 minute walk from our hotel. Avi's is no Chef's Restaurant - this is a typical Israeli Middle Eastern restaurant- but, and... More

Avi welcomed us personally and made a point of trying to make us feel comfortable and at ease. He advised us on the menu and regularly came to check that we were happy with our food choice. The food was delicious and there was ample portions. A very pleasant experience but it was not cheap!

The owner, Avi, certainly knows how to run a restaurant. He came over to every table and personally greeted us. Mostly locals were ther and he seemed to know everyone. He showed us pictures of his restaurant over the past 30 years. We had complimentary salads and dessert. We ate way too much food. Everything was fresh and delicious
