Picture a South American style grill with great meat, properly cooked to order, served promptly with a relish of delicious side dishes, and home-made liqueurs, such as fig arak and limoncello. The setting is a rustic, stone-arched century-old building, off the beaten path, yet a short walk from Safed's old city. The decor fits the mystical Safed mood, while the name of the restaurant reflects the street's name after the famed Kabbalist the Ari.
HaAri 8 is one restaurant where you can bring the kids and still eat in peace. There are plenty of creative activity corners for the children.
But let's get to the heart of the matter, the food. Ahh the food... it's not fancy,..... but it's real good! Choose something oriental to start off, like a Syrian kebob or eggplant, both served with tahini. Then sink your teeth into an entrecote or sirloin steak, or pick St. Peters fish or a hot mushroom salad. There are plenty of spirits, such as beer and liquor, plus the home-made liqueurs like arak, which we mentioned above. And do leave some room for the tasty desserts.
HaAri 8 has a full take out menu featuring meat by weight, kebabs and naturally flavored liqueurs HaAri 8 also can host your private affair for up to 80 people. The restaurant makes an ideal romantic setting for your next party.
The next time your in Safed, check out HaAri 8. You'll get plenty of mouthwatering meat for your buck!
