Service polite. Food well above average and the price is fair. Located at the back/parking entrance of London Ministore/Zavta it is a good alternative to the overpriced cafés at London Ministore. Another great advantage is that there is plenty of seating outdoors and Dubnov Street is much quieter and cleaner than Ibn Gvirol Street.

This dairy cafe restaurant used to sit on Wezman near to KIkar Hamedinah..It now sits near to the back of the Habimah and Kiryah. A nice cosy and modern place that does the simple things well. They have gone with the Gordon Ramsay plan to have a cut down but quality menu and it works. The waiting staff are not... More

My husband and I were at a lecture nearby and needed a good (kosher) place for a light dinner. "Alternative" is walking distance from innumerable points of interest in central Tel Aviv (the opera, the TA Museum, the ZOA house, the theater) and is the perfect place. The service was quick and the food delicious. My only problem was the... More

I have been there twice this year. The inside is nice and intimate and the food is great. Had a lovely Haloumi salad. Reasonable Value for Central Tel Aviv.

Tasty, timely, comfortable, friendly, speedy,all superlatives. Soups were properly spiced. Salad simple but fresh. The restroom clean. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

There are not many options for mehadrin places to eat in Tel Aviv so it was exciting to find Alternative (under Rabbanut Tel Aviv and Chug Chasam Sofer Petach Tikva). It is about a 15-20minute drive from the embassy so it is a good place to grab a lunch if you have what to do at the American Embassy. We... More

I was looking forward to having lunch at this Kosher dairy restaurant located just a block from the Tel Aviv Museum and Cameri Theatre. Unfortunately was dissapointed. The service was slow-we had to ask twice to get our drinks. I ordered the quiche which was actually outsourced-it was cold and tasted like it was factory made-dry and tasteless. The accompanying...

We had a sandwich and a fish dish, which were both delicicious, and deserts - chocolate cheese pie, and an apple crumble both with whipped cream - Yum!
