Fodor's Review

On a tree-lined street with old-fashioned streetlights, you'll find this perfect venue for a laid-back, gourmet dining experience. Located in a renovated Ottoman-era building in Beersheva's Old City, the rustic restaurant and tapas bar has an outdoor balcony, high ceilings, floors enhanced with arabesque tiles, and an inner courtyard. Candle boxes hang from the walls, and dark-wood padded chairs and beautifully set tables give serene elegance to the lovely setting. The

chef and owner, Yariv Eitani, apprenticed in Provence before returning to his hometown, but has changed the menu's focus to creatively prepared tapas-style dishes that don't disappoint. The menu is organized by type of protein, and filled with luxurious choices like house-made chorizo, glazed lamb spareribs, and Thai shrimps, but there are also plenty of prosaic—and delicious—meat skewers, salads, and vegetable dishes.
