The restaurant has a lot of hype and it is largely justified. The dishes were creative and elegant and for the most part also delicious. The appetizers were all fantastic. Main courses were a bit more hot or miss. And the chocolate dessert was actually pretty bad. Service was generally good but at times it was hard to get anyone to come over. So overall this was a very good meal and a good experience but it could be better. And prices are not cheap.

We stayed in Tiberias for three nights and found ourselves drawn here twice because of its excellence. (Magdala Center is just 7 minutes from Tiberias by car.) Magdalena's lamb is to die for (both lamb chops and their special lamb stew). Their cauliflour appetizer is a must-try (seasonings rich, complex, and rewarding,) I cannot understand why this is not the top-rated restaurant for the region. Outstanding service from Alex and Elias. The atmosphere is fine dining, but we actually did not pay more for our meal here than we did at Deck's in Tiberias (the latter did not compare).

A MUST if you visit the area. We were a large group (100+) and the food and service were both fantastic.

Food is excellent and the presentation is top notch. I'd eat here very often if I lived in this area. Unfortunately I live about 6000 miles away!
