This Cafe / restaurant look like one of the nices at the area.
We only looked for a warm drink after walking around for a few hours and we decided to check this one and look inside, the surprise was big and we immediately "conquered" one of the warm comfi sofa's. The room that we set it was under the ground so it felt like being in a cave. It is decorated in an Arab / Moroccan style, Very warm and beautiful.
As i said we didnt check the food so i can only hope that the food is as nice as the other things there. The service was a bit slow but okay... nothing's perfect...
If this is the place on Ben-Gurion close to the corner of Hagefen, just below the gate at the beginning of the Baha'i terraces, it's great!. Very good food. The round-roofed cellar is a part of the legacy from the German Templars who came to Haifa in 1868. They built their homes along both sides of Ben-Gurion, which then had a different name, a German name. They started vineyards on Mount Carmel, and this was one of their vineyard wine cellars. The Haifa Tourist Board directly across Ben-Gurion Avenue has a similar basement cellar, though smaller, and used for showing tourist films. The whole area is great for a visit. If you go to Haifa, also go to the sweets store, at the corner of Allenby and Hazionut. 23 different kinds of Arabic sweets! The area where this restaurant is located is shown in this illuminated photo of Ben-Gurion street:
Favorite Dish: I thought the hummus was out of this world
I was sent to this place by an Arab co-worker. This is one of the favourite places for Haifa Arab population. Here you can get Arabic and other Middle-Eastern dishes but in a more Yuppie, upscale, environment.
