Fantastic

There are not enough superlatives for this bistro. Service was very good and food quality nothing short of phenomenal. The grilled artichoke and creamy feta app was excellent. The Buffalo mozzarella and cherry tomatoes salad was huge ( enough for 3-4 people) and superb. The sea bream entree was... read more

My third visit - excellent restaurant. The staff is professional (a rarity in Tel Aviv) and polite (also a rarity). I just wonder if they can maintain the quality. In Tel Aviv, great turns to mediocre faster than you can say Cafe Montefiore.

Went out with some friends after hearing about this trendy place with great deserts. The dishes we ordered (we went a bit overboard with starters) were so great we ended up with no room for desert at all ... The fish dishes were amazing (starters and main course). Most dishes combined sweet and spicy which made them surprising and fun.... More

Great food, attentive service and excellent location. Great hotspot as a young British couple. Cocktails were also lovely and we were advised by the sommelier throughout our meal for wine.

Trendy place with good food. Small portions. High prices. Service is good but they are a bit nervous all the time since they need to serve as many clients as possible in a limited period of time. Music selected by their own DJ is much too loud (you cannot have a proper conversation with your guests). The rib eye beef... More

If you're an American stay far away from Social Club in Tel Aviv. This was my first trip to Israel, so I decided to take my wife and sister out for a nice dinner. It took over an hour for the restaurant to allow us to sit at a table and this was with a reservation that our hotel (David... More

While visiting Tel Aviv a friend and I ate here on a Friday night. The vibe was great. Young and lively. The menu and food were great. The servers were attentive and helpful. I would definitely recommend!

Young and expensive is what you get, young people and probably rich is what you see. The long bar with bartenders that shake forever in a dim big space makes the place "Uptodate" to be spotted and to catch. The food is good, no more no less, and it's all about the ambient. Expensive.

This restaurant was recommended and it was worth a visit. The ambiance is very chic. Every detail seemed to have been thought of. The decor was understated but appropriate. The background music was spot on, and the service was attentive and very good. We visited in a large group and there were enough servers to ensure that there was absolutely... More
