A group of 6 work colleagues / associates ate here on Monday evening (7th July) and we were all decidedly unimpressed...if you are setting yourself up as a high-end place (which they clearly are) then you really have to deliver, and Hanamal failed in almost every respect.
If the food is a let-down but the service is great, you'll probably give them another go, as it might just have been one of those days...similarly, if the food is spectacular but the service is average you probably won't care either. BUT, if the food is average AND the service is shoddy then you have an issue, particularly at these prices.
Everything seemed too much trouble, including actually cooking my colleague's main course, which arrived still breathing! When the waitress came to clear the table, despite my colleague having mentioned the rawness of his meal, she just shrugged and took it away with no question of why he hadn't bothered to eat it.
We asked for a wine list to accompany our main courses, but this finally arrived after the mains were put on the table, and by the time we actually got any wine I had finished my meal.
I know this is ranked as #4 in Haifa, but on this showing it doesn't deserve it. The food on the website looks fantastic, but when it was served it was all fairly bland - with the exception of the lamb starter, which was beautiful but small for the price.
