    When we were last in Israel in 2001, Eilat presented some challenges as there appeared to be limited kosher outside of hotels. The concierge at our hotel recommended Shauli and Guy in the industrial area. While not at all fancy, the food was good and the atmosphere was fun.

      I haven't been there in a few years, but when I was there last, there was a Kosher Big Apple Pizza. Also, a lot of the hotels have kosher Dairy - and the breakfast is usually free.

        There are 12 kosher restaurants listed at http://www.eluna.com for Eilat. Click first on 'restaurants' and then for 'Eilat.' This is an excellent source for kosher resources, including restaurants of course, in Israel. In English.

          if you go to the eluna site, you can download coupons for the restraunts. also, we aware, some establishments put the tip in the bill.

            All the threads on Eilat are old. Can anybody who has been there recently offer recommendations?

              Hamitbach in the Herod hotel is good food and very funky, the chef won an Israeli cooking show.

              Another great option is Marina Grill in the King Solomon. Old favorites are Ranch House and Wangs in the Royal Beach hotel but they are not what they were 10 years ago. Best Friday night buffet is the Royal Beach (and i have tried and tested a few of them).

              I hope this helps!

              SimonF, I just did! Read my Israel food review.

              There is a fun shipudim place called Achla. You get all sorts of little plates of salads and laffa and then you order skewers of meats on the grill, some of which would not be readily available in the US. (Chicken hearts, parts of a bull that I would not expect to be of interest to a non-cow ... ahem...)

              Not sure what else was available because I didn't do the ordering.

              I think the salads and laffa were all-you-can-eat for a set price per person. Turkish coffee or nana tea came with the meal, of course.

                Thanks for the rec SoCal. Yum really good there. I also went to an Italian place called Angelina three nights in a row - I was a bit shy about going but it was quite good. The creme brûlée is is of the best I've had and they actually serve decent wine which seems rare in this town.
