Been coming here for some years now on business and always visit The Bear. It's a medium sized pub and gets really busy later so get there early (or book a table). The staff are always friendly and the service has always been great. The food is typical pub food but be warned, the portions are huge! Go hungry! I... More

On Sunday's and Mondays they have a discount for students (half price on the entire menu). It's not too loud and full of youngsters. The services is fast and the prices are fair. We... More

I was a little disappointed. I know this Pub for 15 years. For my disappointment the service got unprofessional and the food not as good as it was. I recommend only for the atmosphere. The prices are too high.

The pub does everything a pub has to do right correctly. Good food, good variety of alocohol, good atomsphere. There is nothing that is exceptionally good as there is nothing exceptionally bad about this pub. This pub is always the deafult options when I can't decide where to go with my friends, it's a place everyone agrees to be decent... More

Located in Merkaz Karmel, this pub is one of the popular ones in the neighbourhood. The food and drinks are priced accordingly. Average meal and drink will cost about 100NIS.

The bear pub is one of those places I go out to when I want to have a good beer (from a large variety of draught and bottled beers) along with great food for a fair price.

Love the name, maybe thinking about a bear enjoying winter while we have no winter literally in here, made me want to walk in the bear's cave. Food was great, went with 2 friends that I was visiting in the north, a guy and a girl - and they both enjoyed the selection, everyone has something to choose! Music was... More

The food here is excellent with a nice choice. The burgers are massive and the chicken nuggets enough for 2. Bar staff very friendly too.
