“Boring”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Do not go here. It looks great from the outside but the food is dull and tasteless, lacking imagination and any sort of style. I watched the chef munch away on some piece of meat while he was working at his station. Dishes for diners came out with gaps, and food was literally thrown on the plate with no thought. Avoid.

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The food is basically worse than something that students would make at their student dorm on a very limited budget. Great location, great design but stay away.

“Good restaurant, nice location, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We were there last October, a group of 4.
The food was great. Starting from the grilled vegetables, the amazing 48-hours chicken and the fabulous chocolate mouse.
The service was good, although I was surprised that they didn't have wet-ones, especially after finish eating the chicken.
The location is nice. It is on the main road of Tel Aviv (Ibn Gvirol) on the ground floor of "oligarch" high building.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
