I've been to Haifa several times, but this is my first time here. The restaurant is across from Stella Maris, and has a spectacular view of Haifa Bay out panoramic windows. Because it's on the side of Mount Carmel, the view spans the entire bay - we could see all of Haifa around to Akko.

The food was outstanding as well. The appetizers were great - a wide range of salads and other starters. My favorites were the hummus and haloumi cheese; both were excellent. The tahini was great too. The tuna was a bit gloppy, but tasted good. The veggie salad was also tasty. In fact, there were so many appetizers that I almost wasn't hungry for dinner. My entree was the lamb kabobs, which were delicious but a bit unevenly ground (lumpy).

There's no question that I'll try to come back here the next time I'm in Haifa. The combination of outstanding food and one of the best views in the city make this place a real winner.

We had one of our best meals in Israel here....don't miss the great salads and grilled Calamari and Israeli fish. The restaurant is located right across from the Stella Maris Church (tell taxi driver to take you to the church location) right at the top of the cable car station so the view of Haifa harbor is spectacular. Be sure to call for reservations as they get busy after 8:30. Although there was a little language barrier the staff was very friendly and helpful accommodating the gluten free diet.

This place has a beautiful view of Haifa Bay. The food is excellent typical Israeli midlle eastern cuisine with a fast service. There are lot of salad starters, hummus, etc and then wide selection of entrees. It is the favorite place of my American guests.

This place has a beautiful view of Haifa Bay.
The food is rather basic but excellent, so is the service.
It's my favorite place in Haifa.
WARNING: don't stumble into the CORAL restaurant that is also in Stella Marris in Haifa, just above KALAMARIS. The Coral is not nearly as good. From street level you have to walk down about 20 stairs to ghet to Kalamaris.
