We loved Penguin when we had lunch our first day in Nahariya, so we ended up back there twice more to try other things! The mushroom pasta or blintzes are marvelous. The breadsticks (free) and soups are amazing, and the salads are huge. My daughter also really liked the chulent. Beware though-- the portions are huge. We ended up with... More

It was opened on Friday so that was nice to find it while walking. I took Mediterranean Pizza and my girlfriend took Pasta Bolognese. Both of us enjoyed the taste and the prices were fair I reccomend going there.

Penguin recently celebrated 70+ years of serving. It is a local hang out, the elderly are there each morning for their coffee and cake. We often go there when we need comfort food and slow discussion. Not Kosher, so you can have milk in your coffee after a meal; but i've never seen an offensive item like Pork cutlets or... More

Located in Naharia center. The food is pretty traditional, and somehow old style. An eclectic mix of Italian, Israeli, and European food. Do not expect for a chef, and our first impression was food that belong to the 20th century, not to the 21....
