“Our compliments to the chef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Sylvester night dinner at Popina was fabulous. Dishes were exquisite and the service excellent. The amberjack tartar stood out but everything was delicious.

“Great Little Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Great little place in Neve Tzedek.
Creative food with various cooking techniques.
Special Cocktails and nice Wine selection as well.
We tried various appetizers and mains and everything was very special and tasty.
Try the Shrimp Burger!
Food is a bit pricey, but the overall value for money is great.

“Absolutely fantastic food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Best meal we had after ten days traveling through Israel (and Istanbul). Who knew steamed shrimp could be turned into a delicious burger? Gnocchi, ravioli, beef carpaccio all divine. Excellent wine and friendly service to boot. On the pricey side, good for special occasions.

“Very good but pricy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We set at the really nice outside court, as the weather was good. Between the four of us all dishes were excellent, including the wine that the waitress suggested. Service was very good too. Prices are pretty high but we will return some day to celebrate a special occasion.

“A Stand Out in Tel Aviv”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Busy spot, with a fun and varied menu. The menu is divided into categories depending on how the food is prepared: steamed, grilled, etc. With dishes from light to hearty, there are choices for all. The featured cocktails are good as well. Service is good, though can be spotty. But, it's Israel: you have to be a little pushy sometimes to get what you want.

This is now our favorite "fancy restaurant" in Tel Aviv. We take out of town guests here to show that Israel isn't all hummus and felafel. And we go here for romantic evenings when we want a special night out.
