could anyone recommend a good pizza place in benei beraq that delivers?
not to be too  skeptical but I doubt such a place exists.
Maybe try in Ramat Gan around the diamond district they probably have a good place around it somewhere (inside they do just that unless you know someone in the building you not getting in) just not sure about the hechsherim in the outside stores and about delivery

Mehadrin:
Gabriel / Gabriella is great.
Beit Tiko is so so, but great area.
Not jeru, but the Gush Etzion Winery and restaurant "Bayekev" incredible!
Village green is great but gets boring after 5 visits

Yea so that pretty much ends my mehadrin suggestions :(

Non mehadrin:

Maalot tappas bar
Scala
Mameila rooftop
Japaniko sushi
Hachatzar
is the winery itself interesting? the restaurant is called Bayekev?

U dive have great equipment and instructres. If u want a place thats a little cheaper try Lucky divers. I dont have the numbers on me so GIYF.
Also if you plan on staying in eilat you can try to BRG the local crowne plaza.

Dont waste your time at the poor excuse for a dolfin reef. If im not mistaken they have like 8 dolfins in the whole place so at the most you see 3-4 dolfins break the waters surfece from 50 feet away if your lucky.
Next time your in america go to sea world if u really want to see dolfins.

I actually had a very nice time at dolphin reef. You see descent amount of the dolphins from watching on top, but in the water it's actually very cool and can get pretty close (for a few seconds). yes it's different then swimming on them in sea world- but still more interesting then all other places in eilat.

The reef there is same as everywhere in eilat- which is not that great compared to Egypt and Jordan- but for first timers its enough, and the dolphins add to it.

And the dolphin reef is also has a nice quite beach to chill at before/after your dive. We had a nice day there.
