Its part fo the Mamilla hotel so I was expecting more. Food was mediocre, but what really irked was when they turned down the lights to "romantic" levels such that I could not see my food. As we were the only people in the room (a side room off the main restaurant), no permission was asked, and then insisted that they were unable to revert the lights to normal level.

We shared an excellent dinner here starting with their antipasto of dips and breads. The fish was terrific and the service among the best we have ever had.

Ask to be seated on the rooftop. Very good service, and good food. We went two times. After trying the fish of the day the first time, we have done it on our second visit as well. The whole sea bass was pan seared and it was delicious. Try it with the Israeli white wine.

I think that this is more a luxury fast good instead of a restaurant, you can choose kind of fish, how to cook it and the side dish. really simple with no chef invention. Restaurant is located into mamala mall, has a nice terrace with a fantastic view.
