Henkin House, built in the 1930's, is an Israeli historic landmark. The house was originally the home of Yehoshua and Olga Henkin. Henkin was famous for his work for Keren Kayemet, redeeming the lands of Israel. Olga was the first Jewish midwife in Israel. The Henkins built this home but never lived in it. For many years after their death the home changed hands, occupied by government officials and heads of the area.
In 2004 Arik and Ella took over the building and converted it into a kosher dairy restaurant. The decor of the restaurant is in keeping with the period when it was built. Get ready for a healthy dish of nostalgia. The dishes, the decorations, and the atmosphere captures the period. But the calling card of the restaurant is the view of the sea. You can appreciate this from the inside area of the restaurant or from the outdoor patios.
Henkin House prides itself on their full and attractive breakfast, served till noon. In addition to breakfast the menu offers quiches, lasagna, different types of pasta, salads, sandwiches, toastim and of course a selection of great dairy desserts. You'll work up an appetite getting up to the restaurant.
Note that the restaurant is on a cliff with parking on the ground level.
There are a good number of steps up to the restaurant. There are a limited number of spaces at the top for handicapped parking.
