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.

Cafe Noir has a combination of great food, wonderful service and a nice, quiet atmosphere. Weekend brunches are highly recommended. The place has been around for years, and has managed to maintain the same high level of service and food - not an easy feat in Tel Aviv's dynamic restaurant market.

This restaurant has an elegant but neighborhood feeling. I eat there often, especially for quiet celebrations with friends. The appetizers are amazingly good: sometimes I have two and skip the main course. I would prefer you not go there because it's small and I don't want it to be overcrowded. At the same time, they've been open for at least... More

Great atmosphere. Serves a variety of absolutely delicious portions. I know the place for over 10 years. Tries pretty much all the portions. ALL are very very good. Lamb Kebab for a starter is one of my favorites. And the chicken Schnitzel IS the most famous plate, and a great value for your money. I love the Tiramisu for dessert

I took the wife and kids for a brunch. The food was superb (from steak-and-eggs through a french toast to several cakes and other pastries). The place is very pleasant and accommodates little kids very well.

The whole country talks about their schnitzel. I personally find it hard to get over excited about a schnitzel, but went there and tried it out just to see what all the fuss is about. Well, as expected, it was 2 pieces of veal coated in bread crumbs and fried...it's a big dish though I had the beef tartar for... More

Café Noir is a bistro\café restaurant located in the old center of Tel Aviv. The place is not too big and as it is full most of the time, it is recommended on making an early reservation. The main room is nicely decorated and very pleasant to sit in. Most of the food is simple but is well made of... More
