Restaurants in Tiberias
Tiberias is located along the coast of the Kinneret – the Sea of Galilee, which is the largest sweet water lake in Israel. This makes Tiberias a place for good traditional sweet water fish restaurants. Another fact to mention is that Tiberias of today is populated mostly by religious people, which gives tourists many (mostly) options for traditional Jewish kosher restaurants.
Following is a list of places I find as must see (or must eat) places in Tiberias:
Shimshon steak house
A very good steak house with the best Shish Kebab around. It is quite hard to find, and is located just behind the Tiberias “Shouk” / market. Shimshon serves good meats and salads, his Kebob is a must!
