Outstanding Middle Eastern food, beautifully presented, in a great setting. While somewhat on the expensive side, they also did their best to accommodate our two-year-old grand-daughter.

We enjoyed a great meal with fine wine and excellent service. Parking ample outside and we choose the steps but there is a lift. A recommendation is the fish, fresh and delightful.

Blown away by the quality of the food.
Delicious beyond words. Our waiter, Alex, listened to our preferences and the helped us create a magical meal. 8 appetizers!! No entrees.
Order the Zehra - cauliflower dish, you will be in heaven.

When I requested the desk person to make the reservation he commented that the restaurant was the best restaurant in the Galilee. He was right! The food was extraordinary. We ordered dumplings that were made from ground lamb and pinenuts served in a yogurt and olive oil sauce with mint. Outstanding! Our waiter, Elias Dow (who was superb by the way) recommended that we get a salad to share. We ordered their tomato salad with Burrata cheese they made themselves. Again outstanding! As a main course I had the Black Sea Rizzuto which, except for the calamari which I found tough, was excellent. My wife had a sea bream filet which she thought was among the best fish he had ever had.
This is truly a restaurant not to be missed!

"Are you ordering this or do you require my opinion?" asks our waiter after we pointed out something on the menu. "Of course we would like to hear your opinion", we quickly decide. The waiter shows us a couple of very nice authentic dishes. We immediately change our plan and follow his advice. We like his directive approach: good advice from a waiter is something we miss sometimes in other places. We're not disappointed. As a starter we order a dish with watermelon and ceviche in a cucumber gaspachio and chicory, served with caramelised onions. The tastes are so surprising and nice, with lots of contrasts. The dishes can compete with the better restaurants in Europe. After the starter we went for special sausages with a curry and a tomato sauce as well as tortellini filled with seafood in a sauce with tomato and carrots. Very very nice. Also the desert was good: crème brûleé made with labaneh, which gives the dish a salty-sweet- and sour taste. Very good. Dishes ave a Middle Eastern touch to them but are certainly not the standard cuisine here. Portions are really big enough. The view from the restaurant is on Lake Kinneret.
