All dishes that we ordered were good , however - we were told we can not order any sushi dishes until 1400 but we saw other tables served with sushi much earlier than 1400. A strange habit we discovered only when reaching home - they add 12% for service without mentioning it - so we paid a tip on top... More

Had a business dinner and was positively surprised. The food was very good, border line sophisticated which is not easy to find close to the sea line. Service was very good and the scene of the Herzliya beach is priceless. Bottom line , what a surprising event. We'll come again, hopefully when it's a bit cooler.

It has the best location a restaurant could offer- on the beach facing the water. Beautiful!! A place like this should be crowded and it was empty. The reason is they charge way too much. The wine by the glass was one of the entry price level (low) they charge per glass twice than they buy the bottle. No reason... More

This place as even around for years for a reason. The food is very good , though I would stay away from the Sushi (I've had better Sushi is Israel). The starter and mains were very good, inspirational and balanced. The deserts are very, very good especially the chocolate bar. The only thing I didn't like was the fact the... More

Compared to other Herzlia restaurants, this was not busy at all. Perhaps it was a reflection of the prices. The seaweed salad to start was ok. I chose a starter dish of pasta as a main course size, for which the yuzu sauce was far too sweet. Fellow diners ordered sushi which looked good.

Al Hamayim isn't cheap, so try to go for the business lunch if you just want to try it out. However, this place is near my work & home, so I go there often for lunch or dinner. Despite being quite pricey, the food is very good and worth it. The staff are friendly and the ambience - especially al... More

Slightly confusing to find, but a brilliant find. Not the cheapest restaurant in Herzlia, but certainly one of the best. VERY good fish dishes, plenty of selection of starters, and rather more international than Israeli in style. I've been there twice and would go again.
