Description: Nazareth dishes with a Mediterranean , Morrocan , Persian , Italian , French , and Indian twists !! And what a twist it was. It is our opinion that the food served here combined with the ambiance of a 200 years old restored mansion and the friendliness of the owner leaves all the other restaurants in Nazereth or Israel for that matter far, far in its wake!!

It is the best really. The owner created a masterpiece and of course he choose and created all details in this wonderful Resturant. Food is not only about filling your belly it’s also about atmosphere, company, drinks, and heritage. It’s a special place and you have to be open and generous when going there. If you are, Alreda will be even more generous with you. You will be lucky if you get to be served by The owner.

very special place to sit have a drink with some snack, the Bar there is very rich for those who seek high quality drinks but also has the cheap ones as well.
as for the food the restaurant is known for his special baked dishes, like pizza,sfiha, which are fresh made bread with meat or other stuff on the top.
in general the salads are great, and the music in Um-kalthum most of the time.
my only problem was the amount of smoke inside the place, to those who don't smoke it's very annoying, at weekend nights.

We had booked a meal here as a group prior to arrival in Nazareth. A table for 16. When we arrived the proprietor told us we were in the wrong place, that we were meant to be in another alreda, and he had never heard of us or our booking. This was not true, and we had the emailed booking confirmation to prove it.

The place was empty and the music playing was extremely loud. When we raised our voices to speak to each other (to discuss whether to stay or go) he told us we had to be quiet! Ironic given how loud the place was already. We decided to stay as it may have been difficult for other local restaurants to cater for us at short notice.

He told us that our group could not sit together and would have to be quiet, and that as they had not had prior notice of our arrival (lies) we were not allowed to order from the menu - apparently taking our orders would take 3 hours or something. He said he would make us something and give us a price at the end! Oh how we all laughed...

Eventually it was agreed that we would pay 85NIS each (approx £23) for 3 courses. Drinks were extra. We never received a 3rd course.
The owner was informed that there were vegetarians and vegans in the group, but he did not cater for them. When this issue was raised he gave the vegan hummus and a bowl of rocket and tomatoes. The most expensive hummus ever!
When we asked about wines and beers we were initially offered wine at a price of £100-1000 per bottle. Absolute micky taking.
And on top of all that they were just down right rude.
Our group had many meals during our week long stay at various places, and everyone of them was superb, but not alreda, it was the worst place I have ever eaten and although I intend to return to Nazareth I wouldnt step foot in here again if you paid me.

The place looks lovely from the outside, but the fact that we only saw 2 other people in there at any time during our week long stay speaks volumes. Appearances can be deceptive. Avoid this place. Nazareth is not short of other wonderful restaurants

Very unique place in the heart of the old market and the old city of Nazareth.
The place has been the set for Elia Suliman's movie "The Time That Remains".
The owner is very friendly, and if you stay late you might catch a late night music show (if other customers are up to put it on).
The food is very good.

We were attracted by the description in social media. The beautiful Arabic house is situated in the old city of Nazareth near by the market. The interior is very cozy and in good way old-fashioned. It could be a beautiful experience, but the owner or manager told us absurd stories about some meals, perhaps he tried to poke fun at us. Finally the food was bad. They did not offer any Israelian wines, but the Nazareth beer is surprisingly good. It could be a wonderful place...
