Olla Review

For several years now the best tapas bar in Eilat, this restaurant has leather-backed booths and tastefully subdued lighting. The bar level, extraordinarily lively on weekends, offers some of the best bartending in the city. As for the tapas, try the goose-liver slices on fig confit, the shrimp coated in kadaif (a honey-drizzled, shredded phyllo pastry), and the Cornish game hen lavished with honey and served with charred onions. Ask the manager for special recommendations. Downstairs, and under the same management, is an enticing meat restaurant, Rak Bsarim, where you can choose your cut of meat, butcher-style, or try the 300-gram (two-thirds of a pound), locally raised lamb ribs or foie gras marinated in red wine sauce with chili pepper confiture.

    Olla Review

    The service in this restaurant is great and the place is very child friendly. That, unfortunately sums the good things up... Don't expect Spanish tapas, the menu contains a choice of small dishes and big ones. No matter what you order, the food is drowned in sauce. Shrimps are definitely not fresh and so is the carpaccio. The entrecote was ok and the bread as well. Ordered Crema Catalana for dessert which was awful. I did mention it and they were willing to replace (as I said, the service was fine). The bill was very high, their prices out of proportion.
