We were recommended to eat at Ha'ari 8 and were told that we wouldn't be disappointed. The recommendation was 100% correct. Delicious food, hot and freshly made. The service was very good and the food was served nicely. Care and attention to how the food...was presented was also well done.More

On our first night in Sefad we were recommended HaAri 8. We had in general a very good time. The food is good and tasty, the atmosphere is a happy one, the waitresses always serve with a smile and are extremely nice. But, if you...are looking for impeccable service and restaurant professionalism, this is not the place for you. When we arrived, it took a few minutes before someone came to greet us and although we had a reservation they had trouble locating it and they seemed to forgot about us. After almost 10 minutes we had to ask to be sitted again and it took another few minutes for them to organize our table. The fish was good but from its taste and texture it was obvious that it was not grilled feom the freshest produce. Same for the vegetables forming the side green salad To sum up - I would recommend for a simple evening of good food and great time. I gave it an average because of the several mishaps during the evening. Fix those, and I would have givem it a higher score. Try the baked potatoes and sweet potatoes - we could not get enough and the house bread is very goodMore

They already have the beautiful place and decent food, I’m not sure why they charge you for small dips extra, it’s not like the food is super cheap that they are entitled to charge you extra for things that should come complimentary.

We ordered 2 of 300gram hamburgers and it was delicious. Restaurant was full during lunch which is good. Will come back again soon

A group of us came here for a meal, and the restaurant was really accommodating and friendly. The restaurant is primarily meat-based, although they do have vegetarian options, and everything is delicious. Their schnitzel is really good! The restaurant is beautiful, like everything else in...Tzfat, and is a wonderful place to sit back and relax.More

Excellent food. My only issue is that while the servers were kind, they made a mistake, which they couldn't (or wouldn't rectify). I ordered soup as a first course (and my husband ordered liver pate). we ordered the couple mixed grill for the main course....They brought all the dishes together. I explained, that I wanted to eat the soup first, but was told that the meat was ready, and would be ruined if they kept it warm in the kitchen - so I had to choose between eating the meat warm, or the soup when it was hot.....I chose to switch off, but clearly a first course should be served first (especially soup), and the next course should be prepared while the first course is being consumed....... Anyway - while the soup was only luke warm towards the end, as I switched off - the food was excellent, as is the ambiance.More

Our meal was tasty and fine, though uninspired. Ambiance and decor is non existant, so it's just a place to get a meal, certainly not a dining experience.

We ordered the grill mix for three persons and it was even more then enough for two couples. The meat was fresh and tasty
