Makom B'Sejera (A Place in Sejera) is a kosher restaurant with a difference. It's located at the entrance to Moshav Ilaniya, in the Lower Galilee, just a few minutes drive from from the Golani Junction.
The restaurant is housed in an old stone building dating back to 1899 when the settlement was known as Sejera. It was originally built as an inn for workers and travelers before there were motor vehicles. You can see reminders of that era in the restaurant - wooden cart wheels, farming tools and old photos - including one of David Ben-Gurion who lived and worked on Sejera for a while in the days before he became prime minister!
There is a varied and imaginative menu of meat, poultry and game dishes including some not usually found in Israeli restaurants, like pigeon and mullard. The Danielis, who own and run the restaurant are proud of the fact that they use only the best ingredients. All the meat is hormone-free, the fish is pool-bred and the home-grown vegetables are organic. You won't find white rice here either - only whole-grains.
The restaurant is off-the-beaten-track but has become well-known for it's good food by word of mouth. And if you're looking for a unique place for a celebration or function, I suggest you check out Makom B'Sejera. If you don't live in the area, overnight accommodation is available.

Moshav Ilaniya is situated in a great position for sightseeing - close to Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee. There are plenty of hiking and biking trails in the area. Beit Keshet forest is bit further along the highway and a great place for a picnic, with views across the valley to Mount Tabor.
