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.

This restaurant is difficult to get into, for some reason it is always full. Probably because it offers good value schnitzel-and-mash dishes. There are other good choices on the menu but more pricy as is the wine. Service is friendly but when it´s busy it may be slow. Outside seating available but not with any views, just a Tel Aviv...

The service was a little scattered and the table was too small to fit dishes, utensils, etc. It was right across the street from our hotel (the Norman) which was very convenient.

If it's your first time at Cafe Noir, please order the schnitzel, not matter how tempting the other meals in the menu are. It' the BEST one in Tel Aviv. This is by far one of my favourite restaurants, and you can't go wrong, no matter what you order. Make sure to make a reservation.

Im really pleased to be able to update my previous review on Cafe Noir. On my last visit I felt very let down, so much so that I wrote about it here. To my surprise they took the trouble to call me. A lovely girl called Shir contacted me and apologised for the shoddy service and experience. She invited me... More

Very good international food with a professional service and a nice terrace. Perfect for a romantic dinner. Not too expensive, just the right price.

Yesterday I took my girlfriend for a romantic dinner. I booked a table in advance for 1915 in order to get in no problem and have a quiet time. I had been there before and enjoyed the Shnitzel which is apparently the best thing on the menu here. As I opened the door to let my girlfriend enter ahead of... More

I visit the restaurant with my family. I were disappointed because the food level was much lower comparing to former visits. I'm not share if we will come back again.

I love the atmosphere, provided that I find a table inside (the balcony seating is less likable, in my opinion). When I lunch there, I often order their Viennese schnitzel (veal or chicken breast - both are very good). Very pleasant for a leisurely breakfast.
