Romantic place

We want to celebrate our anniversary so the atmosphere matched our expectation. The concept of the place is the menu changes every once in a while so we can’t really recommend a specific dish but we had around 3 or 4 dishes and dissert that was recommended to us by the waitress and it was delicious

Had mostly the asian style dishes. While those were pretty good they did not match to other top notch asian places in TA. The deserts were excelent.

We returned to this place after good past experience. It is basically a cool place which serves small portions of good staff including seafood. it has a back yard with fresh air and nice urban view. Most of the food was again very good, but there was some service problem which prevented proper enjoyment: We were served all the food... More

The is an Urban Chef restaurant with fantastic menu that offers variety of food. We were 5 for the business lunch. The service was implacable. The Corn Bread - even was not in the business menu was superb. The Shrimp salad and its sauce was balanced and refreshing. I found the cauliflower to be a bit dull. For the main... More

I came with friends after going to Mizlala that is supposed to be a great restaurant in Tel-Aviv. Café 48 is much better than Mizlala. The decoration of the restaurant is minimalist and beautiful, there is a little terrace in the back, the menu has a lot of choices and is excellent. Finally, this restaurant is not expensive for the... More

We shared four starters a main and a dessert and waddled out feeling very full and satisfied. Every dish was delicious. We started with beetroot with gorgonzola and steamed shrimp dumplings with a finely shredded salad. They were both very tasty. So delicious and tasty that we asked for fresh plates so that we could enjoy the other dishes in... More

Tried this place. Nice. Not amazing - and couldn't really work out why as the food we had was very well prepared and tasty. We wanted to eat around 8pm and were offered either the 7:30pm slot or 9:30pm, and as hungry went for the early one. (which was a little too early for us, and also meant there was... More
