We stopped at Sabah W Masa for a light lunch before we visit the orthodox church of Annunciation. It’s located on the square in front of the church (just over Virgin Mary’s well) so the outdoor seating is also a good spot for watching the people passing by.
Unfortunately the menu was only in Hebrew but the waitress was helpful with us, the name of the restaurant is Arabic and means Morning and Afternoon, 100% true as you can have breakfast but also lunch here, I checked the plates of other customers too, it seems they focus on traditional but also modern cousine.
We had 2 beers, fresh lemonade, a cappuccino, a tasty large salad, humus (there was no day in Israel without humus for us!) and small pieces of pita bread that we ate really fast adding a bit of oil on them.
The bill for 4 people was 126nis.

The King's table is the main dining area of the Golden Crown hotel and is located at the 1rst floor, just beside the huge swimming pool. this restaurant serves buffet breakfasts, lunch and dinner to hotel guests and is open starting from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm everyday. since most of the guests of the hotel are Christian Pilgrims like us, we ate the buffet lunch and dinner here and the selections are huge, with assorted mezze's, pita bread, other jewish breads, jewish and international breakfast items and international and jewish dinner meals, all are kosher off course so no pork or non scaled fishes on the menu.
Only Purified water is free, you need to pay extra for the drinks like softdrinks, juices, beer or wine for dinner, but for the buffet, the fresh juices like orange or lemonade or breadfruit are free and many guest fill their containers or water bottles with these juices and water and the waiters don't seem to mind it.
Favorite Dish: I like the assorted mezze's and dips for pita bread but I don't like that mush the Israeli Foods they serve as Kosher, so there are lots of limitations on serving and preparing meals and they seem bland for my taste.
according to their website:
The “King’s Table"
serving 3 meals a day: Israeli-style breakfast buffets combining the local tastes and produce of Nazareth and the Jezreel Valley with a cornucopia of fresh and rich spices and delicacies; a broad range of lunch and dinner buffets.

Okay... so I've been told that this place is a real good one and worth a visit... we traveled there one night (1.5 hour drive from TA !!!) just to have some good dinner... When we arrived there and i saw it from the outside i though Oh boy is that the place ? But then i knew that my friends knows to aprecciate good food and restaurants so i said okay... lets go and see...
It turned out to be one of the good meat restaurants that i have ever visited ! and probably the best Arab restaurant in Israel.
Its owned by an Christian Arab guy for many years now and the atmosphere there is really lovely.... some nice arab music (which made me fly back in time to the great nights in Sinay).
For start they have planty of salads...most of them are not the usual salads that we get in those kinds of restaurants or in any other kind.
Simple and amazing salads, i could have just eatten those all the time we've been there but i heard so much about the meat that that at some point i had to stop and leave some room for the meat...
Their best and famous meat is the kebabs, shishliks, and lamb chops all made infront of your eyes... amazing to see how they chop the meat only that is a kind of art.. And those were absolutelly great.... nothing as i expected... just simply great !
The only thing i thought to my self was when we were on the way back home is when am i going to dine there again...
Open daily 12:00 - 24:00
Favorite Dish: all the green salads and the lamb chops !

This is one of the bests, if not the best, Arab restaurants in Israel. If you come to Nazareth, call ahead and reserve a table as the restaurant is always packed with people. The service is quite slow, but the food makes up for it.
Favorite Dish: The Kebab is made in front of your eyes. The lamb meet and the spices are chopped and mixed right in front of you. Try the "Alepo Kebab", the kebab is put into a bowl with tomato sauce which is then wrapped with pita bread and put into the oven. When you get it, you break the pita into the sauce and eat it with the kebab.
Address: 5053/1 El Mutran, Nazareth
Directions: The restaurant is at the "El-Mutran" neighborhood. You will just have to ask people for directions as you go alone...

With the closure of Zaituna, Nazareth was left with very little in the way of decent restaurants and almost none other than the salads and grilled meats variety.
Diana's Grill is probably the best (and certainly most popular) of these restaurants, helped undoubtedly by rhe fact that it is on the High St.
