As the name suggests, Eddie's is slightly hard to find and not within walking distance of the hotel strip, but tucked into a residential neighborhood best reached by car or taxicab. Decor is more French countryside than beach resort, and the affable Eddie ("I consider each guest a visitor in my own home—a friend," he says) prepares straightforward but delicious food, which makes it easy to understand why his restaurant—one of the oldest in Eilat—is worth seeking
out and earns such stellar reviews, especially for its steaks and seafood. Devotees also appreciate the shrimp and fish dishes. Savor the filet Dijon (filet mignon graced with mustard and brown sugar), seafood gratinée, the schnitzel Cordon Bleu, or Shanghai fish with hot soybean paste. Inquire if Eddie has prepared a "daily"—a dish he particularly likes to cook.
