We had lovely dinner in the inner side located close to the bar. The food was extremely tasty and served in the right timing between entrees and main course. As to service it was very professional with good recommendations suits to our personal taste. Also, the menu is diverse and allows many choices of meat, fish, home made pasta etc.... More

We went as a group of 4 and I must indicate the food was flawless. We ordered Gnocchi (great dish), Hamburger (pretty good also) and some salads. The service on the other hand was quite pushy, waitresses kept coming to our table every 2 minutes asking if we want to drink or order, even though we asked to allow us... More

Not the first and probably not the last time I've been here, never disappointing. Even when I think I know what I'm going to get, I'm surprised every time. The food is good, the chef makes a twist on foods you're probably used to eat, like a roast beef bruschetta which was really good, even the green leaves salad is... More

If you are looking for a nice place in Tel Aviv, this is one of the best. Behind Rothschild street you will find a modern bar restaurant. At summer is the best to sit outside, but if chilly you can enjoy the vibe inside. Nice crowed around. The food is very tasty mix of Mediterranean an Israeli food. One of... More

Wonderfully located in the centre of Tel-Aviv, it is a good choice. Food is good and the service is excellent. However, I found the prices a bit on the high side and not necessarily justified.

Were a party of 10, out for a business/social evening. Food here was excellent. Menu choice was wide. I went for duck as main course and it was excellent. Others had a variety of fish, meat and vegetarian dishes and all were satisfied. Music in the background was lively and added to the atmosphere. Outside terrace as well as indoors.... More

This was a special occasion and we got the private room. The food was very good and the atmosphere as well. This is a clear improvement from the last time i was there few years ago.

When in Israel, only have Israeli food. It never makes sense to me to deviate from local food especially in a country known for it's food. This is a French brasserie with a fun atmosphere in tel avivs Rothschild district (young and bustling). The food is average and so is the service.

This place is pretty popular and "IN". We sat on the bar, the service was good and the food was very tasty and besides the numerous people standing behind us waiting, which is pretty bugging, the place lives up to expectations. They have a wide selection of wines and the prices are not low, but overall we were satisfied.
