Description: Café Noir is a long-established bistro in the heart of Tel Aviv's city, strategically placed between the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and Rothschild Boulevard. It's considered aninstitution by Tel Avivians, and our regular customers are business and media people, artists and in fact anyone who appreciates a terrific atmosphere and good food.Cafe Noir extends over two levels, offering a choiceof intimate sitting areas and spacious seating that's equally suitable for businessmeetings or family celebration. The décor comprises dark wood furniture in classicstyle, a spacious and inviting bar, with oil paintings on the walls and art objects arranged on surrounding shelves. Soft lighting effects create the perfect dining atmosphere. On fine days we have outside seating so guests can watch the bustling life on the streets of Tel - Aviv.Café Noir is busy throughout the day and until the small hours – some enjoying a hearty breakfast, others dropping in for a business meeting, and later evening drinks at thebar.We offer a rich menu – such as our lunchtime starter of liver pate with pear confit, sirloin Carpaccio, and chilli shrimps. For main courses, it's a tough decision choosing between our renowned Café Noir schnitzels - chicken breast, pork, or milk-fed veal - and the meat dishes, lamb kebabs, hamburgers, entrecote. Fish, salads and seafood are always reliable options.

A classic bistro that never gets old with its exciting range of daily special. It is however hard to stay away from its famed Schnitzel.

We just grabbed a quick breakfast here. The quality of everything we had was great- the service as well as the food. The croissant was crispy, the juice was freshly squeezed and the coffee was excellent. Good option for the morning. They mentioned they do business lunches and dinners- looking forward to try if i get a chance to get... More

Our hotel recommended Cafe Noir, and we were not disappointed. It is a bistro in the Parisian sense with intimate tables, and a great sidewalk for people-watching. It has a solid selection of Israeli wines, and a good menu. As noted in the other reviews, the schnitzel is very popular, we chose other items. The fig-eggplant appetizer deserves special mention...

Returned recently to Cafe Noir, one of my favorites in Tel Aviv for many years. The food isn't particularly exciting or creative -- in fact, what I like best about it is the sort of comfort-food feel. Partly this is due to the fact that they make perhaps the best schnitzel in Tel Aviv -- huge portions, incredibly flat, crunchy,... More

have heard about the cafe noir brunch for a while. not sure why the hype. It was fine - no complaints about the quality of the food or coffee - all fresh and tasty and similar to the standard in many other places. The place didn't have much atmosphere and the service - the staff are so busy that not... More

We found Café Noir after scouring the streets for somewhere decent to eat. Having walked past once, not sure whether it would be OK, we returned upon the recommendation of someone we spoke to. Do not be put off by the name. This is a great place to eat. Our waitress was delightful – really friendly and efficient. We ate... More

Cafe Noir is famous in Tel Aviv for its assortment of schnitzels and mashed potatoes. If you come take those. They have other good things too but we usually stick to their specialty. The place has a nice atmosphere and is decently priced for this city. It is also two steps away from Rothschild Blvd. so if you are around... More
