Eddie’s Hide-a-way was founded in 1979 by Eddie Hetz, the chef and owner. Eddie was born in 1940 in New York and immigrated to Jerusalem in the early 1970s, where he met his wife Batya. Together, Eddie and Batya opened a hamburger restaurant. They loved Jerusalem, but the magical sea fascinated them, so they picked up everything and decided to go to Eilat. They bought the restaurant with a goal to make people enjoy food. Eddie and Batya found a small place in a not-so-nice neighborhood and their belief was that the food would make the place and not the other way around. In the restaurant, you will find classic dishes alongside updates inspired by Eddie.
