Food like salads were really great! Done Israeli style with lots of herbs and spices! The pastas were great also. The servings were huge! Great place to eat and go around the garden. Can be full at lunch time.

This Botanical garden is amazing for two main reasons. First, for the preservation of many, many native plants that would have been unnoticed or extinct. Second, for the introduction into Israel of many, many, plants from all over the world.

Pleasant garden for a walk. Very well maintained. There is a tiny lake with water plants that grow in it. Sometimes ducks also. Very nice to walk with very beautiful flowers especially in the spring. There is a nice restaurant by the lake.

We went to the botanical garden with our children last week. Expected something different but we enjoyed. There is a nice cafe overlooking the water. Kids enjoyed feeding and looking at the ducks....
