I'm an actor and a poet who came to Barcelona 5 years ago from Israel to study theater and today I make my living es a tour guide here in this beautiful city. My second love in life (after writing and acting) is cooking!!! I have been cooking since the moment I learned to speak. I like to cook what I like to eat, a simple, tasty and healthy food, in that order. I'm mostly familiar with Moroccan and Israeli kitchens; which is the kitchen I grew up on and i do like the most. I worked in several restaurants in Israel, last of which was Orna and Ella in Tel Aviv. Cooking is important to me just as much as creating a warm, welcoming environment for my guests, so the whole experience of my hospitality is a combination of different flavors that will make you feel like home. Soy un actor y poeta que vino a Barcelona hace 5 años de Israel para estudiar teatro y hoy trabajo como un guía turístico en esta hermosa ciudad. Mi segundo amor (después de la poesía y el teatro) es la cocina!!! Cocino desde el momento en el que aprendí a hablar. Cocino aquello que me gusta comer, así que estoy familiarizado con la comida marroquí e israelí, sobre todo, que es la comida en la que me crecí. Trabajé en varios restaurantes israelís, el último fue Orna and Ella en Tel Aviv. Cocinar es tan importante para mí como crear un ambiente cálido para mis invitados.

My feedback is only about the first part of welcoming a guest / acting as a host: Invitation and guiding the guests to the venue. The other parts did not follow. I received Refael’s instructions and already on the subway, I discovered that the actual street address shown on Google maps unfortunately was not congruent with the details he provided (half an hour walking distance according to the app). Nevertheless (this can happen with GM), I decided to follow his instructions which, however, were a bit scarce for someone getting there the first time („right next to the xyz metro station“, which is true if ‚right‘ next means the right decision between five streets and 300 m walking distance). After having surrounded the large square around the metro without indicating street signs I called him and received tips like „walk down the street“ (yes, but which one?“) „across the supermarket“ (there are actually two in the closer area plus numerous other shops) and „ask people on the street“ plus the remark „other guests are arriving now“ and „shall I send you the instructions again“. To resume, it wasn’t very helpful, especially since it would have been easy to provide clear and easy indications as I saw when I presumably found the house after having walked around for some more time. This also gave me the opportunity to reflect if I want to be the guest of someone who acts like this. My intuitive answer was: No. – I didn’t bother to provide a feedback until I received his suggestion „we will be very happy if you could write us a review (a good one!)“. Above all, such a business (and the new year) should be based on honesty. P.S. I cannot say anything about food or cleanliness, but have to rate it in order to proceed. So please understand the rating accordingly.
