At the foot of the stunning Baha'i Gardens in the German Colony of Haifa, you will find Fattoush, a Middle Eastern restaurant with character, charm and delicious food. A beautiful, inviting garden full of wild flowers and olive trees from which hang coloured lights, welcome each guest into the ornate interior of their restaurant.
The eclectic Middle Eastern menu is as authentic as the Arabic script on the walls and the embroidered cushions and wall hangings inside the 'cave' of the restaurant, should you wish to dine inside.
The eponymous Fattoush salad is a simple mix of chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and onions with fresh mint and topped with crisp toasted pitta strips and very much a favourite with the lunch diners, a wonderfully tasting roasted vegetable dish with almonds and a pomegranate sauce and the chicken fillets with sumac and toasted pinenuts served on warm flat bread was part of our choice and didn't disappoint in any way, however for me, the sumac roasted cauliflower florets piled high with a fresh herb tahini dressing was so full of flavour and texture, that it had to be my favourite.
Dessert was sticky baklava or Arabic 'knaffe' , a plate of crispy noodles served with soft cheese and drizzled with honey, served with an array of coffee options, such as a caramel latte or vanilla cappuccino or if you haven't got a sweet tooth, a refreshing tea with mint will finish off your delicious meal perfectly, all served to you by friendly and professional staff.
