5th day of Holy Land Pilgrimage; 49 pilgrims in the tour group. We have enjoyed and had our fill of falafel, hummus, tabbouleh, shawarma. Tour guide brought us to KTSY Hanahal (restaurant) Sea of Galilee for St. Peter's fish. I cared not what else was on the menu. My focus was on KTSY's "famous" fried tilapia. My plate arrived. Yes...

I ate here a few times with my tourists and they we're always happy. I think the food is really nice here. Not for very low budget.

Our Tour Group stopped here for lunch after visiting a holy location. It was a nice surprise. We had a nice choice of lamb kabobs, fish ( Filet with breading, or a fried or baked fish with the head still on) and a chicken breast. All 37 seemed pleased with what they ordered. Along with the main entree there were... More

Recomend this restaurant for it's good service and fresh food. Salads are excellent. Large space for groups. Large green field outside good for the kids to hang around.

We got roped into eating here by our Tour Company. Clearly this place is just here to soak up tourist dollars. We had salad and it was pathetic. Very little fresh and lacked even lettuce. It was a combination of chopped parsley, corn, cabbage, shredded carrots, stewed pickles and stewed tomatoes. The fish looked terrible and we opted for the... More

On the road north from Tiberias near Kibbutz Ginosar, specializing in Lebanese food. Prices are not cheap, but serving sizes are generous. The food itself is quite good, but not particularly different from the one served in similar restaurants, and by all means does not justify the high prices.

Next to the gas station is a large restaurant pronounced in Hebrew "Katzeh Hanachal" (river's edge) but they transliterate it a bit differently. After recently enjoying a refreshing renaissance of wonderful restaurants in Israel and abroad, KH is like a time machine back when service was not friendly, toilets were badly maintained, food was not creative but filling, and the...

This place is full of people with tour group, the waiter offered us $30 per person for a lunch consisted of 5 small plates of cold appetizers, pita and a fried fish with fries. The fish has been fried ahead of time, came to the table in room temperature. A bottle of beer is $5. I would not call it... More
