Not sure what the hebrew term is for captive market but Hakatze is a classic example of one. The food, simple home cooking (chicken and rice/ cuscous and chicken etc) is fine but not at a 45% mark-up on similar food in T.A or Jerusalem (58 nis instead of 40 nis). As they're one of just two open places in... More

Simple, non expensive food. Chicken with lemon and chicken with wine were great. Hot humus was also nice. Excellent service.

The food and atmosphere is simple but warm and welcoming. Home-style cooking with no restaurant flare but a nice taste and generous portions.

This was the first normal restaurant in Mizpe Ramon. Real home cooking Mothers chicken or meatballs. Fresh cut salads and great soups.

Generous (Very!) dishes of mostly home food, which is served with additions, olives and vegetables. The service is very polite as well as efficient and the waiting period was extremely short. The menu is reasonably priced, although could be a bit cheaper for home food. Still - an excellent option especially during the weekends since most of the other options... More

... but not excellent. Staff was not very friendly, we waited a very long time for our drinks, even though we asked for them several times (we came from a hike and were very thirsty - and ordered just lemonade, so nothing special). Eventually, we already got all our dishes when we were finally served with drinks. The food was... More

In Tel Aviv I am not sure i would give 4 points. In Mizpe Ramon with just few option, I vote yes. Prices are reasonable. Nice food. More options for kids are needed!

We ordered one dish which was good, home cooked, nice portion and tasty. A little pricy for this fare and quantity. I guess it's important to help the small business owners in the out of the way places, it has to be family run. We asked for a glass of water three separate times and did not receive it.
