We were in Tiberias for a week and sat on the waterfront at this restaurant 3 of the 7 nights trying different dishes. All excellent (have the fish fillets!) And always come with complimentary salads and bread. On a warm, balmy night, couldn't be better.

Exquisite middle eastern food on the waterfront of Tiberias Promenade. Relaxing atmosphere with friendly and prompt service. Our four friends from South-Africa enjoyed it thoroughly and even received cardemom arabic coffee on the house. Good value for money!

This is one of the nicest restaurants along the lakeside walkway, and therefore pretty popular. I'd suggest you book, to be on the safe side.
