לחם בשר was 100 times better than skyline. Full review to follow
we liked it 100 times better then the Waldorf for the food but for nice places nobody beats Waldorf
Which one did you go to? there is one in Tel Aviv, Herzliya or tachana reshona the first two are on the boardwalk/water and are very nice

You don't need to worry about NK there
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
