Fodor's Expert Review Crusaders' Restaurant
Sitting by the old port of Caesarea in Caesarea National Park, and with ample seating overlooking the bay, this cavernous seaside restaurant is famous for its fish. The menu features fresh seafood, caught right from the water below, as well as juicy steaks and kebabs. An excellent starter is the salad of grilled eggplant, hummus, and fried cauliflower. Crunchy pita rounds toasted with olive oil and local spices are served alongside. House specialties include baked red snapper topped with chopped vegetables and black mussels sautéed in garlic, butter, and wine. Still hungry? Creamy cheesecake or warm apple pie with ice cream will do the trick. This place is a favorite with tour groups.
