I love this place. I always take people here if I can. Tasty, unpretentious, and best place to sit next to the Sea of Galilee. Good coffee too.

Had a celebratory meal with friends, starting with salads and all having the St Peter Fish (all accompanied with the scrumptious fresh lemonade). The service was excellent - don't be offended when they point out to tourists that the service is not charged in the bill. The food was amazing - the salads were numerous and varied (and we could...

We happened to be in Tiberias after a full day of touring and asked a local to recommend a good fish restaurant. He immediately recommended Galei Gil which has been in business for over 50 years.

Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in the Galilee. The delicious food, along with the outstanding service, will make you want to return time and again. The selection of salads that accompany the entrees is amazing. Be sure to go hungry because you won't want to fill up on salads! I highly recommend any of the fish. They will grill... More

Eat St Peter's Fish right on the water. Very friendly, mature wait staff. Quick and reasonably priced. We ate three dinners there and were not disappointed with any of the meals.
