Good service in a nicely laid out and pleasant setting. Staff is helpful in answering questions you have about any of the food items you are unfamiliar with. Background music is nice and at a level that lets you enjoy the company of a companion without having to shout.
They also have restaurants in Tel-Aviv, Herzliya and Ramat HaHayal.
Favorite Dish: Mose's Hamburger, excellent beef hamburger with all the toppings. Had an extra side dish of onion rings which made it all the better.

We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant for several reasons. First of all the interior is pleasantly done with several tiers of seats, beginning from the entrance to the lowest where the bar is located. They specialize in meat here and they age their meat at 4C for a week before serving, this tenderizes the meat perfectly. Another reason we enjoyed this place was when the manager of the restaurant heard us asking questions of our waiter, he introduced himself and asked if he could help. He sat with us for about 15 minutes literally giving us a course in meat preperation, from the cuts they use and why, to the way they age the meat and cook it.
They are also knowledgeable about wines and have a a very good selection although the prices for a bottle of wine are pretty high as compared to what it costs off the shelf in a wine shop.
As you can see from Zohara's photo they have booths, as well as seats, which can be quite comfortable to spend some lounging time in while you are waiting for your meal.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the Entrecote steak, slightly more expensive than normal, but worth the extra for the very good cut of meat.
Zohara had the Sinta (not familiar with this cut in English, sorry).
We both enjoyed the meat and the protions were okay..about 350 grams or even more for my Entrecote.

Tavlina HaKfar is full of smells and tastes of the middle east and Europe also..you can find mixtures made by the owner Tzvika or you can go for standard spices or dried fruits or even special chocolate to make your own at home.
Favorite Dish: There is also a small "bar" at the back of the store where you can have a hot drink of coffee, fresh ground from the beans or even a chocolatae, a chocolate drink that is so thick and sweet that the spoon stands up in it...Just ask for Tzvika and say "Shalom Tzvika, what would YOU recommend", he will look you in the eye and tell the bartender there, "give them a ......" and he will most likely be correct ^O^

Tavlina HaKfar (in English "Village Spices") is a store owned and run by Tzvika, the guy in the picture...if you would like to bring back a "different" type of present from your visit to Israel, why not try stopping by his store and pick up some of his hand mixed spices to bring home to family and friends a true taste of Israel.

Favorite thing: A brand new park established near the entrance to Rishon LeZiyyon from the main highway number 4. The park is dedicated to some of the leaders of Israel who have lead the country over the years. Some of the names are well known internationally such as Herzel who began the IDEA of reestablishing the state of Israel. Or Golda Meir who lead the country during the 6 day war between Israel and Syria/Jordan/Egypt. Very nicely designed with one fountain providing water flowing into a channel that runs the lenght of the park into the lower fountain where you have a "fire" type element. The statues (only faces, chiseled out of stone in a fashion that reminds me of Mount Rushmore in the USA), are placed around the lower fountain and there are also nearby monuments to each of the figures here, explaining their important, place, contributions and accomplishments in our history. At the entrance to the park there is also a wall dedicated to those who contributed to help construct this park.
Fondest memory: You can find the park just by looking for the line of international flags along the road, this is the border of the park. Parking is a pain to find, it is "hidden" in the back street near the country club and the signs are only in Hebrew.
