In comparison to plastic tourist spots of Eilat, this restaurant is a real gem, even though you need to leave the tourist center. The bistro called Pedro has charming athmosphere and the delicious food you eventually need to get. The restaurant seems to be frequented by locals and we spotted at least five different birthday parties.
We chose "tasting menu" for two (148 NIS each), which included five starters (stuffed mushrooms, polenta with beef, bread and spreads, ceviche and salad), main course and dessert from the list.
We loved the juiciness of ceviche and the crunch of the bread, while polenta had really good quality parmesan and beef was nicely cooked.
For main courses, both were well-cooked and the flavours were on point. Tournedos Rossini had a bit too thick foie gras and the other piece of meat wasn't unfortunately the medium-rare we asked. The beef Dijon was hearty and tasty. Especially the vegetables had high quality and lovely texture.
All dishes were large-sized (like it seems to be in Eilat) and a bit too salty for Finnish taste.
With the food, we enjoyed a nice bottle of house wine from Golan Heights. Pedro might also be a good destination for us winos just because of their wine bar.
We had a reservation but that was lost in the system, so we did not get a table but were seated by the counter. The counter had a view to kitchen so if you are a real foodie like us and want to see what happens behind the scenes that's your place.
Our waiter, Nik, attended us meticuously and had a nice laidback attitude. (BTW, thanks for the complimentary house-made coffee liquour, that was really good.)
In conclusion, cozy athmosphere, plenty of good food and friendly service. We would definitely go again (if we ever come back to Eilat).
