We were wondering around Tiberius at night the day before Passover so everything was closed. Omar invited us to eat at Big Ben and we are so glad we did! The atmosphere was great, we sat by the fountain and the server was attentive. I had the St. Peter fish and my husband had the chicken shwarma which were both... More

Well if ever we made an error of judgement it was with Big Ben. All the food we ordered was downright rank. Beware of onion rings, fries, shoarma (plain lamb fat and horribly smelling!!!), chicken livers and fish & chips. Only the schnitzel was edible. And unfortunately the service was accordingly. So one advice for you: stay away if you... More

There were many different dishes (specially for teens that normally are kin of picky with food abroad). The burgers were great. I asked for one of the specialties : Peter s Fish ( was not that special. Too many fishbones). The rest of... More

A friend and I came here while staying in Tiberias. The restaurant itself was quite funny as it is called 'Big Ben' and yet is an Irish restaurant serving Italian food and serving local Israeli wine! We ordered food and a bottle of red wine; the wine was average but the food was fantastic! The spaghetti bolognaise especially! Afterwards a... More

Excellent food. Before the meal they brought out salads and pita complementary. I ordered the fish and chips, my husband had the pasta Neapolitan and the kids had schnitzel with fries. All meals were fresh and prepared well.

The food good, but the service was better. It was Saturday evening before the Sabbath ended so we were limited on restaurants. This place was one of the only places open. The food was average-to good. Service was great and it was a good location to people watch.

Just been here during my stay in Tiberias. Service quick and attentive and I did not experience dodgy bills as other reviewers. Food is in line with what you pay, so not bad after all.

Our first night in Tiberius we ate at Big Ben. The service for the most part was good but not great.

The food was about average but what made this restaurant great was convenient location, Omar our server, and his attention to everything. We had the big mixed grill and it was very good. We sat outside with a heater and Omar made sure everything was in order. The food was good but the service was great!
