Useless Resturant- Don't waste your time nor money: - Ate there on Friday - Paid 400nis per person for such average food -> No starters (The starters we wanted weren't available) --> for 70nis we were brought whole corn on the cob, that's pretty much...impossible to share, especially since we didn't even have enough cutlery! -->> I asked the waiter (won't name him now) about the meat, all the guy could say was, "I'm not sure, but this is one of the best resturants in Tel Aviv!" I beg to differ heavily --->> They had 1 cut of steak for each size only ---->>> The waiter didn't return once our food was delivered ---->>>> Some of The starters arrived at the end of the meal! It would be one thing if the food was excellent, and that might justify the cost, but the average food coupled with the TERRIBLEEE service. First and DEFINITELY last time eating there.. don't waste your time here.More

This is not the first time I’ve visited this restaurant. Always had a good experience with it. BUT THIS TIME WAS CATASTROPHIC. 1) we were promised to get large shrimps, instead we got tiny ones non cleaned and impossible to eat. 2) we ordered a...Grilled Fillet steak an instead we received chopped fillet pieces in cold tomato sauce, inedible. 3) we asked for some sort of side dish and we were told that they do not serve that kind dishes !!!!! We reserved our table at 19:00 and by 20:00 we were already out. The service was bare able and in order to please us or better to compensate they give us two desert dishes which also were very mediocre. I will have to try very hard to go again to this restaurant and probably will not.More

Fantastic - quintessential Tel Aviv - unpretentious, friendly and excellent food. Pricy but worth it - every dish was consistently delicious. Not always the case at restaurants in this price range (or higher).

We came to the restaurant greeted and seated by the host We got a dirty menu but the food options were look nice so.we stayed and ordered drinks When we tried to order the dishes it came out that more than half of the dishes...are missing...no body tried to warn us before The dishes we ordered came cold and without a taste Everything comes with cremefresh and horse radish.. When we asked the waiter why it's like this we got the answer that's it is "One Time Experience" Indeed it is The prices are crazy The place is dirty and you get no plates and in general Zero Service So bad that we didn't leave tip Stay far from this One time tourists trapMore

This place is known as one of the top trendy places to eat at, in Tel Aviv. I’ve seen in it on 3 major sites for Tel Aviv travel, and since it was taking too long to get an order in at the burger spot...next door, I looked online, found the info I just noted and was happy that I was standing in front of a top restaurant by chance. The ambience is my kind of flow, tight crowd and you’re certainly going to end up getting a conversation going with someone. Had some great conversations while there. I heard that the steak was the thing to get so I definitely had to have their steak and salad. Perfect! I will add that you need to be aware that there are no plates. I ate that steak off of the chopping board. I have my new favorite spot on Lilienblum! Expect some pricey meals but it’s just off of Rothschild so you should expect this.More

The food is excellent. Wonderful selection of vegetables. It's overpriced. Very. The style is kind of like a picnic (no plates, served on cardboard, overly casual staff). It's more grungy than upscale. But the prices are not street food prices! Recommend the cauliflower, broccoli, and...dark chocolate cake.More

The concept is interesting (minus eating off of cardboard) and some the dishes (fish and cauliflower) were amazing, but it is a bit hit or miss. The service was pleasant, but not particularly helpful.

Food was Ok/good. Service needed improvement (long waits before seeing waitress). Overpriced. We only had the seafood though, so not sure how the meat part of menu was.

Daughter had heckle this back for our last night as a special treat but we were disappointed and all felt this was least satisfying dinner of the trip. We were downstairs so not in the cut off upper room noticed when using the cloakroom before...leaving s to ht was good. The place was also busy na had a good vibe about it. But the food did not live up to expectations. The gimmick of serving most dishes on to the brown paper table cloths and not giving anyone cutlery unless you asked for it was just silly. It just meant a messy table top and sticky fingers until were got cutlery and some food was not finger appropriate. The usual sharing dishes but not a patch on some of the other places we experienced on our trip. The large broccoli and cauliflower dishes were okay but overpriced compared to similar we had eaten elsewhere in the city. Special note of the hanger steak which was too undercooked and too chewy to enjoy and worst of all the lamb chops dish - presume they gave the meat to someone else as our portion seemed to consist mainly of lamb fat. Looked like a nice place for a night out seated at the bar but cannot recommend for a good evening meal,More

First off, Israel is expensive and we knew that coming in. This restaurant in particular seemed a bit overpriced though. We loved the pizza and the lamb meatballs. I know that they pioneered the whole roasted cauliflower head, but service on the table seemed bit...gimmicky and flavours were quite flat compared to the other cauliflower versions we had over our trip. Service was extremely warm and lovely - the waitress was sweet to my kids and even gave us a free dessert. Overall it was a lovely night, but the price points don’t seem fully justified.More
