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.

Friendly manager/proprietor gives a nice welcome. There are tables on the edge of the promenade overlooking the Sea of Galillee which is lovely We ate grilled fish which was simple but good and enjoyed some local wine.

We had very good dinner here in the evening - just on the sunset time. Beautiful place on the Promenade on the lakeside. Gluten free meal is possible ( one needs to ask it herself). I ate an Israeli salad as starter ( no bread available as gluten free, so no bread for me). The size of salad was big,... More

We had dinner here on Saturday evening in Succoth week, so most other places were closed. Superb location on the Sea of Galilee with wonderful views to the dreamy hills on the far side. Enjoyed a nicely grilled St Peter's fish (although no denarii in its mouth), and tender grilled chicken. Nice accompaniments, and a good local wine list. Nothing... More

The view was magnificent and service kind. We got grilled meat, especially the lamb. The small salad you can order as a starter, is the best though. You get different small dishes with salad, humus, eggplant with bread - very nice to share

After touring around the lower Galilee all morning we were hungry and wanted to enjoy the Galilee sea while we ate lunch so Gilai Gil was perfect as we sat with a breeze cooling us down. Our host was charming and prompt in serving us and we soon had the beautiful mixed salad in front of us. There was so... More
