“The most beautiful view in Haifa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013 via mobile

Undoubtedly the restaurant has the most beautiful view in Haifa. The whole Haifa bay is in front of your eyes. The atmosphere is very pleasant and unlike many restaurants in Israel, the acoustics pleasant. The food is very good, not fancy and not sophisticated. Service nice and not pushy.
We spent a nice and tasty evening.

“Good food, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

I came on my own (what a waste) for a quick dinner. Had pasta in beef & mushroom. staff was very kind and patient. the view from the window is really great, as the whole bay is viewed.

“Great view, good service, very bad chef and horrible prices”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

The Barbarosa restaurant is very recommended in all related media .
The restaurant has a beautiful view. We came 4 persons for a late lunch. The waitress was kind, but the food was mediocre, to be polite.
We got two overcooked steaks (two of us asked for same dish), cut to very small bites. When we complained to the manager, he took the dishes back. We order again two other steaks (this time Entrecotte steaks, cooked medium).
We got two steakes cooked rare (very) and tasteless.
The manager came back to accept that the previous dish was "mistakenly" overcooked and mumbled something about the cutting.
Summary:
The restaurant is extremly expensive
you don't get any value for your money
The cheff (if we can call a cook this way) has still to practice a lot at home before he works with customers
Look for better options!

“great view of Haifa bay, ok food, nice bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

we were 8 family mambers for dinner. we were seated at a nice private room with amazing view, the service was friendly but typical israeli, means amateur (zero understanding in wine handling, kept forgetting things but very nice). we had no first dishes just the house bread which was reasonable. pasta dishes were ok, salmon was average so were the steaks. we had a sinta, an entricotte and a fillet, all were ordered medium and prepared accordingly, the sinta which was the day's special was the better one but non of them exceeded average. desserts were also in the same level (napolleon, cheesecake and belgian waffle). had a bottle of Amram blend which was ok. the atmosphere is nice and there is bar which seems to me the right way to enjoy the place. prices are in the high level but not out of line.
