This bed & breakfast is very welcoming and it's located in a beautiful area of Lower Galilee overlooking the Lake. The rooms are quaint and comfortable. The whole feeling is rather homey.

It's a beautiful place with a family feeling. It is managed by a famiy - parents and son - and it feels like it, you feel welcome from the minute you arrive until you leave. Don't forget to ask to taste the choclate the owner makes, it's very good.

Make sure to order the lamb stew - served in personal crock. This is one of the best tasting dishes I've ever had. I suggest ordering ahead when... More

Stayed at the Arbel Guesthouse and were pleased to find they had a restaurant. And what fabulous food. Israel is a master chef and produces delicious, different food both for dinner and breakfast. Go for dinner even if you don't stay at the guesthouse.

Quaint family-run eatery. Service was welcoming and friendly. Menu is relatively limited; meats are the main feature. Vegetarians have little to choose from.

The starters, the main course and the desserts here are all home made and of top quality. Unlike in most Israeli restaurants where we've been eating, it takes a while before the meals are served (which... More
