We enjoyed this place twice on our last visit although it was busy the staff was available and the food brought out quickly. The food is real authentic geshmak and tasty, all of us finished up the food, different age groups but we all walked out happy .

I was passing by Sefad with my Family on Passover holiday. We were looking to get some lunch, we read online that there are just a few kosher for Passover restaurants around so we decided to try Areleh. And let me tell you, I wasn't expecting the best food but I was wowed with the food... We took a combination... More

We loved coming to this place. The atmosphere, the music, the service, and the FOOD! We had a delicious sea bass with sweet potatoe and soup of the day. Very special and comfortable restaurant with a lot of choices in the menu. We had a great time.

The food is good but the service is horrible very understaffed and we only got served when we threatened to leave without paying for the appetizers. And then somene finally came to serve us after waiting for 3/4 hour and we got a very impatient look. SO IF YOU DO PLAN ON TRYING IT. ODER EVERYTHING AN HOUR BEFORE YOU... More

This is a typical Steakiya. Very loud and busy place. More expensive than I would have expected for the portions we received, but perhaps that's Safed, capitalizing on it's tourist location.

Ahrele's is one of the better looking eateries on the main strip in Safed, so I ventured in. The room is spacious, though it could use a bit of design infusion to spiff it up a bit. I would have preferred that the bun be toasted, but my burger was absolutely perfect and I enjoyed every bite. The salad on... More

The place really hops during the week evenings and while heads and shoulders above other restaurant options in the Old City in Safed, is really just a reliably good meat restaurant. Where it shines is the large selection of take-away food for shabbat at very reasonable prices.
