We were in Tiberias for a week and sat on the waterfront at this restaurant 3 of the 7 nights trying different dishes. All excellent (have the fish fillets!) And always come with complimentary salads and bread. On a warm, balmy night, couldn't be better.

Not very impressed with Galei Gil. The food is mediocre and the so called fancy St Peter's fish is better known as Tilapia. The view is amazing - but what do you expect if you are on a A1 location? I am giving this restaurant...More

This is one of the nicest restaurants along the lakeside walkway, and therefore pretty popular. I'd suggest you book, to be on the safe side.
