My travel group visited Tel Shiloh in late April. I hadn't been there for three years, and was quite impressed with the improvements of presentation and number of new places and artifacts displayed. This is an area of tremendous biblical significance, for example, it's where the Mishkan -- the Tabernacle -- rested for several hundred years. We were led around by a local, knowledgeable guide who spoke fluent English. Yup, there is a gift shop. One note: TripAdvisor states Tel Shiloh is in "Ariel" and the "Palestinian Territories". Tel Shiloh adjoins the Israeli town of Shiloh. Ariel is another, much larger Israeli city. And Tel Shiloh is actually in Area C, the Israeli area on the West Bank designated by the 1993 Oslo Accords, signed by Israeli and Palestinian leaders at the White House.

This is our 4th visit to Shiloh. It gets better every time. But this time was so amazing because they opened up a brand new restaurant called Merlot. Every year we worry about what we are going to eat there as all they had to offer was a grocery store of cold food or a pizza place. But now they have a 5 star restaurant in this tiny town of Shiloh that can rival any restaurant in Jerusalem! We had the most amazing eggplant appetizer, fettuccini in pesto cream sauce, salmon salad with a mustard dressing that really blew us away and an Asian salmon dish and a greek feta shakshuka. Wow - it was all so fabulous that we ate every bit of every dish. The chef, Igal, was trained at a culinary institute in Israel and he is excellent. The server, Rebecca, was adorable and so sweet and kind and helpful. The entire experience was a joy and we cannot wait to go back and try the chocolate soufflé. We had to leave to make sure to see all of Shiloh before the sun set -but we could have stayed another hour in Merlot having desserts and coffee. We highly recommend Merlot!

I have visited Tel Shilo more than once. And each time I have visited, the presentation has gotten better and better. The sight has great Biblical and Historical significance. And the movie presentation is a must see.

I absolutely loved this place. I named my daughter after it and had always wanted to visit. I was not disappointed. There is a nice little cafe/gift shop as well where I got a lovely latte. Fantastic history and lovely gardens to sit and think. So much history and I would definitely return.
