Hakatze is a classic hole-in-the-wall kind of place. No ambiance whatsoever, but the food is prepared fresh daily and you can't go wrong here. As a vegan, I was able to fill up on hearty lentil soup, hummus, and salad. All for 60 shekels.

A very friendly and relaxed family run restaurant in Mitzpe Ramon. The food was good and priced fairly for what it is/where it is.

Not sure what the hebrew term is for captive market but Hakatze is a classic example of one. The food, simple home cooking (chicken and rice/ cuscous and chicken etc) is fine but not at a 45% mark-up on similar food in T.A or Jerusalem...More
