Meat soup was tasteless. Chicken soup wasn't ready - noodles were not cooked and were hard. After 2 bad dishes - I was asked not to order another dish. Really??? Are they serious??? I usually give excellent reviews or none. This place is cute but horrible food and service. Management - very rude. Service - awful.

We stopped by Kovshim after discovering that the nearby Eden Bistro had closed. Unlike other reviewers, both of the dishes we ordered were awful. I ordered the gravalax salad with burghul. I expected something similar to tabouli with thin slices of gravalax and a nice yogurt/lemon dressing. What I received was a big and very unappetizing heap of coarse burghul... More

Kovshim is located close to the big parking lot between the Carmel market and the sea. From the outside you would say: "Hmmm". But once seated (not many seats, though) and going through the menu, you sense this is a special place. Regretfully at 19:00 on a Saturday evening they ran out of lots of goodies and were fervently preparing... More

My husband and I were walking on the promenade in Tel Aviv when we used our trip advisor application to find a good restaurant in the area.

Really excellent food and good service. We had the special which was fish with gnocchi. Beautifully cooked and nicely presented. Our daughter had the steak medallions which were tender and cooked to her preference. Would highly recommend.

We were out late (around 10 pm) and almost in vain looking for a light dinner snack when we stumbled over this place. Located at an inconspicuous corner close to the beach we were served friendly and quickly with delicious chicken salad and fish catch of the day. Highly recommendable!
