“Different this time...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Didn't enjoy Yaffo Tel Aviv, the last time I was there.
This time it was a completely different experience.
Everything was good about it - the service, the food, the ambiance... A good advice from the somalia gave a really nice start to the whole meal. Great first course - Tortellini (unfortunately only 3) of Jerusalem artichoke. Continuing with the main course of tasty Ragu with home made Gnocchi. Finishing with 4 different desserts (unique and sweet)... Superb!
Hence the different rating...

“Simply The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Chef Haim Cohen's restaurant Yaffo-Tel Aviv, never fails to delight with the very best of seasonal, local produce, cooked to perfection in the enormous Taboon, which is the signature of this stylish, sophisticated restaurant.
My husband's all time favorites are the oven-roasted vegetables (Haim buys them from a small organic producer and you really can tell the difference) with the most amazing tehina, and the oven-roasted octopus over gnocchi and white beans, the bouillabaisse and the veal ragu. Mine is the fillet mignon with cauliflower cream and black lentils and the grouper fillet with jerusalem artichoke and mushrooms.
The breads, hot from the taboon are sinfully good and on Thursday and Fridays there are fresh challot and cakes - our favorites are the poppyseed yeast cake and the maple& pecan sponge .... on sale for taking home for the weekend.

“Best Israeli ingredients simply prepared to very high standards. Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Modern smart space a little off the beaten track. High quality service. Take pride in their sourcing and let the quality of the ingredients do the talking. Wonderful crab on light pastry succulently sauced but delicate. Light gnocchi. Flavourful lamb with sweet young vegetable. Great middle eastern desserts. Good wine selection.

“I must say this is the Best Tel Aviv has to offer..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I have been to Yaffo a hundred times and still cant get enough. Its such an amazing place great Art presents. Good food and a old time feel that you just dont get in Tel Aviv.. Its a great mix of Arab culture and western connivence.. If you go to Tel Aviv and dont go to Yaffo your really missing out..
