The Ranch House(www.ranchhouse.co.il/)
The reason I give the Ranch House such high praise is because:
- The chef takes Kosher ingredients and able to use the to max.
- The service is outstanding! All the waiters wear uniforms,look professional, smiling and very tolerant.
- It is styled for comfort and the decor may be a little outdated but it doesn’t take away from the ambiance.
Now lets get to the food! We went as a family with my three year old daughter to this 5 star restaurant thinking this would be a problem. The thing was, my daughter behaved better than half of the patrons at the restaurant! The waitress that came to take our order was super nice and kind. Even when we had to switch out my daughters order because she wanted a burger and then changed her mind to a hot dog, they said it wasn’t an issue, and it was taken care with a smile. I feel that that’s the most important part of going out, when a patron gets great service, 9 out of 10 times the patron will recommend the place and also return again in the future.
So, now that our daughter was happy, my wife ordered the Chicken salad and I ordered to 400g steak on the bone with onion rings for a side. The food came very fast, and the portions were enormous! They gave my wife this salad tossed with the house vinaigrette that was mayonnaise based and it was just great. the chicken was tender, the vegetables weren’t to soggy and all in all a great salad.
Now let me share with you the steak. It was cooked to a perfect medium rare, served with a sweet potato and three sauces: honey mustard, au-jus, and a red wine reduction. All three were full of flavor and really complimented the steak. But the steak itself was so good! Melted in my mouth in every bite. The onion rings are made in-house and were crunchy and full of flavor.
For dessert we shared my daughters chocolate chip ice cream that tasted a bit parve bit was still good.
SO next time you visit the southern city of Eilat, you must try out this restaurant.
