“Gathering spot for Irish in Tel Aviv”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

As all Irish know the first thing we look for in a foreign city is an Irish pub.
If you think there is anything wrong with this one then you havent been anywhere else in Israel.
The decor is typical Irish pub abroad, the food is standard bar food for when you get sick of falafel and schwarma.
They've got magners(bulmers) cider although not on tap.
Best thing about this place is the staff. We are always met with a friendly chat and a smile(which can be rare sometimes in Tel Aviv).
Trad session with spoken hebrew interludes on a monday is an experience.
Will miss Molly's when we leave Tel Aviv.

“Oh, do I owe these guys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

There we were, my Israeli friend and me, figure skating fanatics....and my TA hotel did not have the special Olympic channel which we only discovered as the ice dance was starting. Panic. Run through the streets near HaYarkon looking for place with unoccupied television set.

Irish pub? In Tel Aviv? Glance in, many many Brits with eyes glued to soccer match. (Yeah, I'm an American, so what?) Arsenal vs Liverpool which I vaguely know is important. Clearly we're not changing any channels here so about to leave when my sharp-eyed friend notices small unused room in back...with television. Thank you, god of the Irish and the Jews.

For two nights the pub hosted two nuts cheering ice dance as if it were soccer or hockey. Brought us very good food and drinks, too, and turned up the volume. Did not allow the Brits and Dutch on the second night to switch the channel despite their dubiousness about watching this....spectacle. Cute bartenders if this perk matters to you.

We really owe you guys. I promised a review and here it is. When I want to depart from the usual Tel Aviv scene and hang with the Euro crowd, eat sausage instead of vegetables, or just be in a friendly place with good food conveniently located close to the beach, I'll be back.

“A Change of Pace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Irish Pub in Israel. Molly's is a fair bargain. Pub fare. Meals are reasonably priced, portioned, and flavored. They have a decent beer selection. The service can be a little slow and the tables a little small, but it's a nice unassuming place to get a solid meal for a good price and have a few beers.

“Molly Bloom's Pub, Tel Aviv, Israel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

If you want a change from the usual Israeli meals, if you're tired of yogurt, fruit and vegetables, if you want to eat where the locals go, try Molly's. I had the Shepherd's Pie: excellent. The hamburgers are delicious. Even the French fries are outstanding. There are many beers to choose from, and of course, the ambience is all Irish. Highly recommended!
