good food; good service good atmosphere. My wife and I sat in the back with a beautiful view. The food was tasty and warm...freshly cooked.

Returning to Safed and to a zimmer rather than a hotel required a change in meal supply. We returned to an old favorite the Cafe Monitin and ordered them to prepare from their menu and we picked up. As we had been accustomed, the value...was assured in quality, taste, and portion size. Thank you again even under these very extenuating circumstances.More

We enjoyed a few meals here from coffee and desserts through to bountiful breakfast. Lovely views. Open late.

This establishment just celebrated their 4th anniversary, and in this short time they've achieved well deserved recognition as the go to place for dairy mehadrin in Tzfat. The menu is extensive and every dish we ordered was incredible. Portions are generous, prices are fair, and...the whole environment is cozy. Some of the wait staff was totally not fluent in English while some were. The service was a bit slow but only because they were understaffed. TIP: Ask for a "view" seating in the back of the restaurant, and you'll be treated to a nice view of Tzfat.More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Monitin . We recommend to sit upstairs on their rooftop- beautiful view, soft piano music and very generous and tasty portions service was excellent and prompt.

We were a big group coming for early breakfast here because Elements Cafe doesn’t open until 1030am. We gave the restaurant a heads up the day before (as to group size) but there was only 1 nice, but overwhelmed young woman as both cook and...server. Some food came out after 30 minutes, some after 60, some after 90. Luckily, we weren’t in a hurry. We won’t be returning...More

Waited 30 minutes for breakfast. We were a party of 4. The 4th person waited 45 minutes for his food. Some of us didn't parts of our order. One omelet never arrived, 2 drinks didn't arrive. The service staff was disorganized and didn't take our...complaints well at all. Ex."We're waiting a long time for our drinks, you keep alternating between telling us that they're coming and that you don't have it and you'll bring a substitute drink." Answer:"What do you want us to do now?!" (smirk) On a better note, whatever was finally served, was nicely presented and tasted good.More

I went to this place with my husband last Friday. The waitress was completely lost. She sad they had a lot o clients that day (!!!) I didn´t eat because my dish didn´t come (!!!!) My husband ate alone and I was just looking him....The girl didn´t bring glasses, didn´t clean the table and just looked the scene of my husband eating while I was waiting for my dish that never come... Finally my husband went to pay the bill directly to cashier and I went to eat in another restaurant. I´ve never saw some kind of service like that!!!!More
