Lucca is an Italian restaurant located in Herzliya's marina , just in front of the boats and the water , which makes a very relaxing atmosphere.
This is not a kosher restaurant so you can find here all kinds of Pasta , gnocchi , focaccia , pizza , fish , chicken and meat.
Favorite Dish: As a pasta lover i ate Pene with Pesto and it was very good , the focaccia was tasty and also the starters they gave us.
Moses, located in the middle of Herzliyas business ditrict offers one of the best hamburgers in Israel I believe. Built in a style of a high class dinner it offers a wide range of meat, salads, Deserts and also have a nice bar. The service is good but sometimes the place can get crowded. In weekends it may be better to make a resevation.
It can be a great place for having birthdays in my opinion and there are also some latenight menus in very good prices.
Favorite Dish: The "Artburger" - 250 grams of meat made in secret recipe for the third generation already!
Lucca is a nice Italian restaurant by the sea , on the marina of Herzliya.
The food is very good and the service is fine.
Favorite Dish: The starters were great , the pasta was good , we ordered two dishes - one with Pesto and the othre one was was Alfredo.
The bread was also vert good.
We were searching for a steakhouse to rival those we frequented in the States (Morton's, Sullivan's, Forbes Mill). We never expected to find it at a kosher place, but decided to try after recommendations from friends and a review in the Jerusalem Post.
The upscale casual atmosphere matched the food perfectly. Fresh flavors that are subtly enhanced, not overpowered, by seasoning; elegant yet not fussy presentation; a decent yet not overwhelming selection of both food and wine. The South African touches (bourewors, billtong, monkeygland sauce), add an interesting texture to the menu. My South African born husband claimed he was brought back to his childhood by the onion strings.
The biggest surprise was probably the outstanding service. We were there for my daughter's ninth birthday, and the waitress(es) were friendly and kind without being condescending. My daughter ordered tuna tartare as an appetizer, but didn't really like it as it was chopped up with onions and herbs. However, our waitress noticed, asked what was wrong and offered to bring her a new one made exactly the way she wanted. Even though my husband and I had already eaten probably a quarter of it. Another example of the attentive service is that, without being asked, a waitress (not even ours) noticed that my daughter needed another napkin and brought a small stack. In fact, in general, the cooperation among the wait staff was remarkable.
The dessert (chocolate fondant) was excellent. The fact that it had no dairy was not even missed. The only thing I missed was an after dinner cappucino, but after such a large meal it was probably for the best.
From Ophiro's Page:
"We came to Dublin to celebrate my wife's birrthday and it was a great place !
I never visited Ireland so i don't know if it is an authentic pub like the pubs in Ireland but the atmosphere was great.
They serve many types of beer , food and more alcholoic beverages.
The food plates are also very big.
Favorite Dish: I ordered 0.5 liter of guinness beer from the barrel and also a glass of whiskey.
The beer cost me 24nis (5 usd)."
The Herzeliya branch of moses is a very quiet one , located on the Industrial/High Tech area of Herzeliya Pituach , between other good restaurants.
During the week you will see a lot of High Tech people eating there but during weekend and evenings there are families or couplues that want to enjoy good food and lovely atmosphere.
The food here is like in Tel Aviv and the service is good also.
Favorite Dish: I love the Hamburger and the spicy pepper souce is excellent !!!
It was a little to crowded and noisy for my tastes, or maybe the accoustics were just horrible, and the lighting was terrible. But the company was good as Andie, Gil, Rob and Nathalie were there along with Zohara and I.
Favorite Dish: The steak was a generous portion and juicy to boot.
Agadir is a chain of restaurants that specializes in burgers. However, to at least justify their Moroccan name they do serve dishes that are known as part of middle eastern / north african cuisine. So if you didn't have burger in mind, order some Moroccan onion bread or traditional sigars (tiny dough wrap with meet or veggies inside).
My burger was great. I took the smallest one, which is 160gr, and it was huge. Side dishes have to be ordered separately. I asked for a SMALL portion of french fries and what I got on the plate could feed 3 hungry men. No wonder they serve it on a separate plate.
Everything we tasted at Agadir was good, their salads, cotlettes, and burgers are really tasty and they were accompanied by a great selection of beers.
The place is always busy and you may find yourself waiting for a table for quite a while, unless you reserve a table in advance.
Teh service was great and with smiles. The only thing that a bit bothered was loud music, but maybe it's because we were sitting on the bar right next to their dancing DJ, so I won't list it as a con.
And again, the camera stayed home :(
Zozobra is not a place where you'll go to for a special day celebration or a romantic dinner. The long tables and benches of the restaurant definitely don't create intimate atmosphere, but they have their charm. The space his huge and the kitchen is right in the middle of the restaurant, so you can see how these noodles are pepared.
Food comes to the tables in no time. Once a waiter took your order he sends it to the kitchen using a palm pal -size device, so by the time you finished discussing your main dish an appetizer will be served to you. This makes Zozobra a perfect place for a lunch break.
Seaweed and cucumber salad with japanese seasme oil sauce was a great start. And then came pad thai with shrimps, which was absolutely delicious. Can't remember the other dish ingridients, however it made a nice picture.
Prices are very reasonable, the presentation of dishes is very nice, service is great, kitchen is clean and you can see it from your seat, and it's a smoke free restaurant.
We have Nathalie and Rob to thank for taking us out to this place, their choice was excellent. The ambience is not so great, it is very crowded, and I do not wonder why, the food itself is plentiful and very good. It is always nice when you have some "elbow room", but the food is worth putting up with having the next table very close.
Favorite Dish: Rob chose the food itself since we are not familiar with the Japanese names, but we did the "sampler" route with a wide variety of dishes. We tried such things as:
Nigire Sushi, Tamago (Japanese Eggs), Magoro (Tuna on rice), Koroadi Denis (fish), Conus Salmon with Avocado..
All were great and the evening with friends ended all too soon.
