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

We have eaten at some of the finest restaurants in Tel Aviv and around the world and this "hip" place is one of them. The menu offers unusual dishes wonderfully executed and the service was friendly and not "stuffy"

We really like this place! Every single time we visit we had a great dinner. Don't miss the buns with the pulled meat! Most of the dishes you'll pick will be great, thanks to a very good chef. I really recommend this restaurant.

A very nice restaurant. Modern yet homely, very clean , with a fusion - mediterranean menù with fresh ingredients. Most dishes twisted tradition with a modern touch. We really liked the courgette pate as a mini starter, the eggplant and the calamari as mains. Above all we loved the cracking. Simply to die for! Professional staff.

Unfortunately, we didn't have a good experience here... Nice, but poor service, the food was average, very small servings to relatively high prices. The cocktail was well-tasting though.
