“food and music neer the sea.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We discovered Vashti just 2 weeks ago, and tomorrow we are going there again - with the kids.

the live oriental music by an old arab guy playing on the ood goes well with the atmosphere of old Jaffa, 50 meters from the see, with the bustling noise of this hectic city and smells of bread baking just across the street.

“Stupendous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Happened by this place at 11 pm after walking away from Jaffa and the kitchen was open. We took a chance and ate here and it was awesome! Friendly staff, great food and cool location on a traffic circle. I will be back!

“Very good Jaffa inspired cuisine, in an "authentic" atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

This was my 4th visit and the courses were consistently either very good or surprisingly creative (and good).
This time we had the fish special (malitas) with superb jerusalem artichoke. Gaspachio was also excellent.
Good local wines and fun atmosphere.
Will certainly come back.

“Vashti has become our favourite place forin Tel-Aviv”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

Merav is a young and very gifted chef. The atmosphere is cool and relaxed. We love sitting at the bar and to interactveith thecservers.The DJ on Thursdays is fantastic. The deserts are very European and so refined. No frills, no prevention, excellent and creative Mediterranean food. Vashti is definitely a winner.

“Low key, high-quality dining in Jaffa/Tel Aviv”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Flora, the owner, said that Vashti is all about 'creative spirit' and it shows. It's my favorite kind of Tel Aviv eaterie...low key with excellent fresh food. Seafood is highlighted but there are some great veggie pastas. Reservations are a must. Good, cheap house red wine. Enjoy - Vashti's one of my absolute favorites!
