Approx. taxi fare from Ben Gurion Terminal 3 to Tel Aviv

My flight timing has changed (Easyjet have moved from Term1 to Term3 and changed all their timings). I am now arriving at 19.30 on Monday 29th April (can't wait). There will be 2 of us and we had intended to take the train and then bus to our hotel (Beachfront on the corner of Allenby St) but as it's late and we will be hungry, I am considering taking a taxi from the airport. The other option is to take the train and then taxi to our hotel. We are travelling carry on - standard carry on wheelie case each.

1. Will it be a lot more expensive for 2 of us to taxi from the airport rather than take the train and then take a taxi to our hotel?

2. Would the train be quicker? I am thinking traffic here.

3. Can anyone suggest an Israeli restaurant for our first night close to The Beachfront hotel ie. within a 15 min walk?

I have read somewhere (possibly here) about Cafe Metzada which, on the map looks close but I can't find out much about it and the menu is in Hebrew. I am concerned it might be American and as It will be my sister's first trip to Israel I want to introduce her to Israeli cuisine. Any other suggestion very much appreciated.

Thank you

Yes, from anywhere in Tel Aviv will be the same fare.

Correction to above commenter - many taxis in Israel now accept credit cards.

In answer to your tipping question - it is not customary to tip taxis in Israel, although the driver won't be insulted if you do. You certainly DO NOT need to add 10% or 15% or even 5%. If the cost is 98 shekels and you say "keep the change" from a 100 shekel note, that's fine. If the cost is 101 shekels and you give 101, that's fine too.

ALWAYS ask for a receipt from the meter. It has the driver's name, details, car registration - if you have forgotten anything or have had a problem.

There will be 5 of us traveling together from TLV to Tel Aviv. Do I have to take 2 separate cars or are there also minivans available among taxis at TLV airport?

Does the fare change in any way? Thank you.

There are large taxis available at the airport. The dispatcher will call one for you if there isn't one immediately available.

There is a small surcharge for more than two people, but five people in a big taxi will work out much cheaper than two separate taxis.
