It's worth a stroll up and down it to check out the scene and some of the younger folks dressed to impress, and that's about it. You can do much better on food by getting off this street. It's...

This is honestly just a street full of restaurants. We thought there would be more to it. The food is excellent. All of the restaurants have a great reputation.

A beautiful place to visit in Haifa. Co-existence of our population, preserved buildings from the German Templar settlers dating 1800's. View of the glorious Bahai gardens and temple. Great restaurants.

In Addition to the super view is is a historic area with Templer houses and a tour is a must. There is an entrance to the lower part of the Baha'i Garten and a great choice of restaurants.
