Our David’s Harp Restaurant on the Water is the newest full service high quality restaurant on the northern shoreline of the Sea of Galilee. Located right next to ancient Capernaum in the heart of the Pilgrim Tourist region just a short drive from St. Peter’s Primacy, Tabgha, and the Mt. Of Beatitudes, having the capacity to serve hundreds of visitors at the same time, and featuring the only floating dock on the Sea of Galilee serving the famous wooden boats, the restaurant is well positioned to raise the experience of visitors and pilgrims who come to the Galilee to a higher level than ever.


Located at the beautiful site of the Capernaum National Park, the Israel Nature & Parks Authority planned to develop the restaurant and gift shop complex to their full potential. Eventually, the contract was granted to Sar-El Group, and we are honored and thankful to be trusted with this historic and spiritual site which will soon be open to serve the multitudes of pilgrims and visitors that arrive to the Galilee region in search of the footsteps of Jesus.

Yosef Muallim and Arik Kerin who oversee the new complex bring with them the values and rich experience of 30 years in Israel’s tourism industry. They successfully managed hotels and restaurants in the cities of Eilat and Tiberias, and for the last 13 years operated the famous “St. Peter’s” tourist restaurant on the shores of the Sea of Galilee with 400 hundred seat capacity.

Radi Talhami who manages the restaurant and accompanying services brings with him rich experience in hotel management while still teaching at the Tourism Academy in Tiberias.

Area of Services

The restaurant offers full services with a rich menu of local Israeli cuisine including the famous “St. Peter’s Lunch,” while hosting its guests in a modern and comfortable air conditioned waterfront space with full view to the magnificent vistas of the Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights.

Next to the restaurant and the open air amphitheater seating 300 guests for group events and worship, visitors will enjoy our exquisite gift shop, and be able to stroll along the shoreline of the Sea of Galilee.

Adding Value to the Group

Operating as part of Sar-El Group, David’s Harp Restaurant on the Water will cooperate closely with our Sar-El Tours’ groups, add value to the itinerary of all visitors, save precious time, and enrich the experience of every pilgrim.

Located right across the road from our newest David’s Harp 4 Star Deluxe 300 hundred room hotel, close to the historic Capernaum site, and next to the only floating dock operating on the Sea of Galilee serving the famous wooden boats, the restaurant is at the heart of the new experience that Sar-El Group is preparing for its guests when visiting this beautiful area that is so rich with biblical treasures and lessons.
