Ida’s Restaurant is the kind of restaurant that if you were to find it abroad you would surely love it and coming back home you would warmly recommend it. For the average Israeli diner Ida’s Restaurant is a gem in regard to its cuisine as well as to its design. Guests from overseas will be impressed.
Ida’s Restaurant, located in the former home of Nahariya’s first mayor and named after his wife Ida, has a classic European atmosphere to it in shades of white and with old fashion furniture. And the service matches as well- being pleasant, efficient and with a smile. So until now it all had to do with your sense of sight, and what about your sense of taste? Well, to start with, a tasty bread will be served to your table with special dips which will pad your stomach well, taking care of that initial hunger until the first courses arrive. Then a various kinds of green leaves salad will arrive at the table together with the fruits of the season and cheeses which will pleasantly awaken your taste buds, a dish of crispy calamari which is accompanied by a mayonnaise and capers dip, a dish of shrimps sautéed in a cream sauce, cider, blue cheese and apples, as well as an interesting dish of Asian style ravioli with lamb filling in tahini (sesame paste) sauce. It is important to mention that the menu changes frequently and adapts itself to the seasons of the year and to the quality raw materials that can be found at the market at that specific time.
After such a beginning, the talented chef prepares the main courses among which are a lamb T-bone on kenafeh filled with onion and figs in a rub syrup and natural sauce (and yes, it is as good as it sounds), a velvety seafood risotto with parmesan and crabs cream, as well as a grilled fresh salmon fillet with tomato risotto. And if you still have some small space left in your stomach after the main courses, you will also be delighted by the desserts section with the help of a classic cr?me br?lée, an apple cr?pe and a delicious cheese jelly that is served with kadaif noodles and roasted fruits.
After sipping an excellent cup of espresso, you can hold hands and go out on a romantic stroll on the banks of the Ga'aton Stream toward the seashore and fantasize that maybe you are actually walking in the French Riviera. The question is: do they cook there as well as at Ida’s Restaurant.
