Rafa: Rafa's, excellent entrecote steak
The atmosphere was very friendly and we felt comfortable from the first moment, no rushing here...you can see that the decoration is subdued and well made for an easy meal...
Favorite Dish: I tried the Entrecote Steak and it was excellent. Everyone tried various meals, including some pasta dishes and all were well pleased. The only reason I gave a lower evaluation of the "satisfaction" was because the portion for me was small, everyone else was sated.

Jauni: Always Tasty
I have been eating there a few tims though not in my last visit there, but its time to add a tip about this one as well !
Jauni is one of the relatively oldest and well known Bistro's in Rosh Pina.
Lovely to have a sit outside and enjoy the quiet around while enjoying one of their good dishes.
Rene: Rene (Bistro, Bar, Coffee-Shop)
This local "Bistro-Bar-Cafe" wants to cater to everyone, but they seem to satisfy none. Lacking in any decor of any type with poor seating (hurts to sit after a while) they seem to have done there best to be totally bland. A large choice of liquors and whiskey seem to be their reason for being there since they had a poor choice of beers (only 4 on tap)...

Abu Saleh: Best Hummous in the Galilee
This restaurant is not in Rosh Pinna but a 5 minute drive away. The best Hummous and salads imaginable with a very friendly atmosphere and great service. A reasonably priced meal as well.
Favorite Dish: Hummous and all the salads
Shiri Bistro: Very pastoral and peaceful
Shiri bistro is located in the Meyasdim street when going up towards the reconstructed part of Rosh Pina.
Its near the famouse "Pina Barosh" B&B.
They have a few tables indoors and most of it is outside watching a fantastic view of the area till Mount Hermon and even some parts of the Golan Heigts.
Its all quiet, peaceful and pretty nice food, some of it quite unique.
The only problem was that as soon as we got the food slowly slowly some bee's started to arrive... not sure if it was the season, the day or something else ... i couldn't bare it and we decided to go inside and eat there ...So obviously we have missed the nice part of the place.
I might give it another chance though not sure... maybe even just for a coffee and such cause there atmosphere there is fantastic and the view is wonderful.
Oh and since a place like that reuier some great photos then i should add here that this was the trip where i forgot my camera in the morning at some cafe' on the way to the orth and we only picked it up on the way back so inbetween i had no camera to photograph there.... Murphey law or not ? sighhh
Choccolatta: Coffee AND Chocolate!
We really enjoyed this little cafe - not all that easy to find. It's at the top of the hill after the Rothschild Gardens, but set back and more or less hidden behind a building. The structure itself used to be a kind of stable if memory serves me; nowadays, it's turned into a hip cafe with, you guessed it, all kind of chocolate desserts (their name gives away their specialty!). A perfect place to kick back on one of their comfy couches and order up some decadence.
Doris: Doris Butcher Restaurant 2
As I said you can have your meal, try out a selection of different cuts of meat and then order some to take home directly from the butcher counter that is an integral part of the restaurant...an excellent place to stop and get meat if you are planning a BBQ..

Doris: Doris Butcher Restaurant 1
This is the inside of the Doris Butcher's Restaurant. It is very clean, open and had excellent service. No to mention that the meal was great, the meat is fresh and you can pick just about any type that you can find in a butcher shop...and you ask WHY, well because Doris is also a butcher shop, you can take home cuts of meat after you finish up your meal.

Chocolata: You CAN'T Skip THAT one !
In a very magical place quite hidden but if you'll ask for it you'll find this wonderful place named "Chocolata".
This is an old building which was built in the late years of the 19th century by the Baron Rotchild for the first Hebrew Teacher of the first Hebrew school in the galilee. Years after that this place was turned into an orphans house.
Today its A beautiful Bakery & Cafe with a little Bar. The cakes that are served there are simply heaven and you can find some best quality chocolates that are made there as well.
Also there's a little Ceramics gallery for those of you who likes this stuff.
Its a real unique place which makes you feel like you almost "touch the history".
Favorite Dish: Oh gosh... Am i suppose to describe the cake i had ?
Too good to be truth... :-)
At Rafa's House: Next Time...
Okay.... So normally i dont write about restaurants which i haven't tried but this one worth a few words !
We were walking in a quiet morning in Rosh Pina, climbing the Sters of the "Baron's Gardens" and close to the top of it we suddenly saw this BEAUTIFUL place.
We looked for some good coffee but we arrived there a bit before itsopening houre so we only looked in and i loved it immediately !
At its yard there's a lovely tables with a great view and the inside is Another Old house which was turned into a restaurant.
The menu seems to be quite a good one (not a standard one) and i know i will dine there in my next visit.
Ha' be'er Bar - Cafe: Amazing View
This real lovely Bar / Cafe is located on the top of the hill in Rosh Pina. The view from its balcony is absolutely fantastic, and although i really loved the way that this bar is designed
I still rather sit outside as long as the sun hasn't went down....
The food is okay, lots of local stuff but nothing spectacular. Lovely music and nice friendly service.
I think their advantage is definitely their location.
