Welcome to Maarava, the latest story by Chef Ran Shmueli. The venue where anytime is the perfect time for an event.
Situated only a 15-minute drive from Tel Aviv and set amidst a rustic setting of a eucalyptus grove, pergola and garden, overlooking an open landscape, Maarava dares to redefine the culinary art and style of catered events.
The chef, kitchen and food
The guiding principle of Chef Ran Shmueli’s kitchen is the use of fresh, seasonal ingredients – a truly “Farm-to-Table” cuisine. Fresh agricultural produce arrives daily to our kitchen. Fish are freshly caught on the same morning and herbs are hand-picked from our garden minutes before they are chopped and prepared.
Not only fresh, quality ingredients shape our menu – you do as well! Having no permanent menu, we’ll sit down together and define a creative culinary concept especially for your big day.
Maarava is situated in the heart of the Sharon and comprises three successive areas, each offering a totally different experience. An enchanting avenue of eucalyptus trees welcomes the guests. In our garden, under the pergola, they enjoy a short nature walk and a landscape stretching out to the horizon. Stepping into the banquet hall, the guests will enjoy an outstanding culinary experience and truly memorable party. See More
A venue for any event
Weddings, bar or bat mitzvahs, business events, parties, or any other reason to celebrate — we’re here to handle all of the details for you. Maarava offers modular spaces that can be easily adjusted to suit your style and achieve the right design for the occasion. Let our topflight professionals handle all aspects of your long-awaited celebration.
Maarava’s bar is a trendy cocktail bar in which you would want to spend a fun evening with friends. In the spirit of Maarava’s “Farm-to-Table” philosophy, our bartenders use fresh fruits, vegetables and aromatic herbs to create the tastiest and most refreshing cocktails. For those who like their drinks ‘straight up’, we serve the leading brands of whiskey, bourbon, vodka, wine, and beer. Guests can enjoy our alcoholic beverages in two different locations – on the southern terrace or in the banquet hall – that way the good spirits flow throughout the evening!
The success story of Chef Ran Shmueli is not a one-man show. Years of dedication in establishing one of Israel’s leading catering companies, the very popular Claro Restaurant, and other assorted culinary ventures, have brought together the finest professionals, forming a unique and harmonious team that is truly one of a kind. This team will listen to your wishes, refine your ideas, and ensure that every detail of your celebration is perfect.
