Kefar Liman is a pastoral, quiet village, located in one of the most beautiful places in Israel, between Akhziv and Rosh Hanikra, a foot walk or a bicycle ride away from the beach. The variety of guest rooms in the peaceful village was recently joined by a new member; Michael’s Local Bistro managed by Chef Michael Gertopski, who until recently was the chef of the Social Club restaurant and the Chef de Cuisine at Herbert Samuel restaurant in Tel Aviv.
The restaurant is located in a wood cabin surrounded by a garden. Its windows are open to the rustic view outside; and it features wood paneled walls and wooden chairs and tables, covered with white tablecloths adorned with flower arrangements. At the entrance to the restaurant stands an oval table for 12 diners, and at the heart of the restaurant a rich beverage bar.

Chef Michael, who moved to the Western Galilee from Tel-Aviv with his family, frequents Acre’s fish market every morning, personally choosing the fish that will be served for dinner that evening. The menu changes daily but has several set anchors: Plancha grilled calamari with black lentils and Yoghurt, Dentex Carpaccio and beef fillet. On other days diners may find here: veal tonsils, Meagre fish or lamb chops, respective of what the chef ‘fished’ at the market that day, all perfectly fresh.
In addition to the menu, the bistro offers special dishes. Those are written in chalk on the blackboard, and the gracious, well trained waitresses will gladly and politely explain each and every dish. The alcohol bar is diversified and rich comprising a variety of Israeli boutique wines, some from the Western Galilee.
At this point Michael’s Local Bistro is open only on weekends, with the intention to open it on other days of the week as well.
