Dine in Preserved Building Restaurants
Restaurants in Historic Sites
Israel is a country rich in history and it seems that wherever you turn there are buildings of historic significance. One of our favorite trends in restaurants are those housed in preserved historic buildings. These buildings are often protected by law, which poses limitations for the owners, but the terrific ambiance that these buildings afford, is well worth the hardship.
The following are some of the eLuna restaurants in historic buildings. We invite you to visit these remarkable restaurants and enjoy the amazing food, the unique architecture and the lovely preserved structures.
Roots - 1 Weitzman St, Acco 04-8848040
Roots Kosher restaurant, Acco, from Uri Arnold of Arnolds Restaurant fame. Roots is a chef meat restaurant located in an 11th century citadel. The citadel was built during the crusades, withstood Saladin's invation, the ottoman rule and a host of other conquerers. The British used this citadel as a prison, and in the 21st century the venue was renovated and turned into a restaurant. Apparently in this century we shall beat our swords into steak knives and forks.
