“Good food, service nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

Went 3 nights to this place. Food always good and the staff were great. Asked where I was from and have a little conversation when I waited on food, always smiling..... Except the guy who looked like he owned the place or was in charge at least but I wouldn't let that hinder my experience

“Everything is great until you get to the main food...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

i was here with with my wife family and we wanted to get something to eat ...
The place is nice and we have been sitted in a very nice area.

the waiter was extremely nice , we got a lot of free first dishes like beard & salads and then the main dishes arrive ...

the Hamburger was dry , the steak was dry , the pasta ( which had the restaurant name) was just a lot of sauce with no particular taste. the salmon was also not that great...
the waiter recmoneded our dishes as "great" which they were average at best.

in conclusion i cant recommend this restaurant , it has a nice staff & place but main dishes can be skipped altogether

“The Penguin in Nahariyya never fails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

I visited this restaurant for the first time in 1986. Since then, this has become a favorite place every time visiting Nahariyya. Here the food is delicious and the ice cream portions are huge :-)
