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 lovely restaurant, not noisy, great wine list and perfect for meeting with old friends. We all had their famed Schnitzel and everyone was happy. Waitress was great and the location is great. Restaurant's ambience is warm and inviting.

We took some friends from abroad for dinner. The place was full as usual. They loved the decoration. The food was delicious. As everybody says, still the best schnitzel in Tel Aviv. The prices are reasonable. Highly recommended for a casual dinner, or lunch.

I opted for a side salad, which was good. Dessert, creme brulee. My husband had poppy seed struedel, which he said was a little dry.... More

Very enthusiast staff, kid friendly and tasty menu. I can especially recommend the chicken here. Make sure to make reservation as this restaurant is fully booked most of times.
