Very nice atmosphere. Slightly off the beaten path. Mix of locals and tourists. Caters to large groups and intimate dining as well. The food is fresh and well prepared. Wonderful place to eat and join with friends.

Don't let anyone tell you there isn't good food in Safed. HaAri was really very good. Great starters, huge portions, excellent lamb, steak, chicken. Good selection of beers and wine. A whole loaf of warm homemade bread. Friendly service. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

Couldn't find a decent steakhouse and was lucky enough to find this beautiful restaurant right near the Ascent Center and Carmel hotel. Service and staff was great and was a break from all the pizza and falafel.
