Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Still working out bugs while we were there. Buffet was really nice with fresh food. So, had to chase the waitress down for morning coffee which was a little disappointing since I noticed wasn’t the case for every table. Would eat here again, though.

We ordered the places few days before, but despite of the restaurant was almost empty the waitress said us the all of the tables are ordered. So, we got the table at the podium, right next to the steps. The first experience we got there - don't trust the reviews. The interiour of the restaurant is cosy and interesting, the staff is helpful and smilie but useless. One of us decided to take a breath outside, and after she got up from the chair, because the table is placed exactly after the step, she fell. No one from the staff did not help her. The managers did the pocker face... No apology for the inconvenience, no compensation or even a free dessert, despite the fact that they can be sued for a good amount because of the all of the above. By the way, the food is very arabic-oriented, but for arabic dishes they are of very small size - one small kubbeh for the person(!), just funny. Nothing special in this place has not been found. The food is not original, I'd say not the chef-kitchen, and very expensive - unrelated to an unpleasant event. The real rate of the place, as I see it is 3 of 5 stars. But because of the exaggerated prices - 2 of 5 is the compliment to place.

The food was excellent. Expensive but excellent. The views from inside are not beautiful. And it is not possible to eat outside - that is what we were told when we arrived.

A very stylish place to have dinner in the Tiberias region. We ate in Tiberias town on our first night and were underwhelmed with the food choices, so decided to head out to Migdal (15 minutes’ drive) to try something different. We were very glad we found this place. It was above a shopping mall so had free and easy parking and an elevator to take us upstairs. The food was delicious with middle eastern flavours and the decor and ambiance a lot fancier than we had expected. It was very busy with a lot of larger tables so we were slightly ignored with our small party of three, but still the food was great and it was a huge improvement on any restaurants we found in Tiberias. It is 5 minutes away from the ‘Yigal Allon Museum' to see the 2000 year old fishing boat, and the boat pier for cruises on the Sea of Galilee, so we did a sunset cruise on the lake before dinner which was a very nice experience (see Galilee Sailing Ltd).

The combination of flavors in the shared dishes was fantastic. The best meal we had this week in Israel. Highly recommend their Zahara, Shishbarak, and Istanbul sticks, although honestly everything was beautifully presented with fresh ingredients and absolutely delicious. Not any more expensive than the rest of our meals in restaurants here, and the quality was far superior.

It is not the first time...and for sure not the last one. A remarkable combination of Chef restaurant with a very good service. Zozo Hanna succeeded to lift the famous Lebanese cuisine to elite level. Wine list is also top. Worth every shekel.

Every shared appetizer took a traditional Arab Israeli item and raised it to the next level. The mains included a beautiful simply prepared sea bass and an exquisite squid ink black pasta with lots of shellfish in a uniquely flavored rich cream sauce. The traditional fruit snd nut filled pastry was lovely. So too the apricot sorbet. One of the best meals I have had on an international vacation.

Fabulous restaurant! Excellent food, decor, and service. Loved our waiter Julius. He recommended the Lamb Chops and they were the best we’ve ever had! We didn’t have a reservation but they graciously accommodated us.

The restaurant is located near the famous historical and religious sites on the northern coasts of the Kineret Lake that makes the restaurant very popular and full of visitors, especially during the peak hours. Hence, booking in advance or a pre-appointment call there is recommended. The "Magdalena" provides a rich choice of Middle Eastern dishes, however in a modern way. Very tasty! Fish and mini kebabs were excellent. Do not forget green salads - really worth to try! And one more remark - the dishes are not on the cheap side, however, they are worth the cost.

Very nice premises, although the surroundings and parking are a bit chaotic. Great welcome and service. Chef restaurant menu, with a few very good options. Great wine choice. The appetizers were divine - especially the cauliflower. Good entrees. Superb deserts. Expensive, but worth the money

Fine dining. Great, attentive, friendly service. The food is OK, good but not amazing. Expensive but definitely worth the service and the atmosphere

My husband and I ate dinner here a few days ago and we both enjoyed the whole experience. The design of the restaurant is lovely -- it was a pleasure walking to our table. We shared 2 appetizers -- the Jerusalem bread stick and arrabeh market salad. Both were delicious, unusual, and a treat for our eyes, not just our mouths. My husband's chose the seafood pasta for his main course. I ordered a vegan main course that was not on the menu -- freekeh with root vegetables. Both my dish and my husband's were excellent. My husband chose the chocolate dessert that was outstanding. The service was excellent. My only criticism of the evening is that the noise level was quite high, even though the restaurant was perhaps 50% full. I am looking forward to returning here.
