Since I'm not watching any TV I was not guided by "Travel Show-comments" , but somehow I had hears about the place ........Total rip-off, the elderly "boss" (?) friendly like a hungry doberman, overpriced and lousy food, the outdoor place cosy as a car-junkyard ....Inside looking characteristic with all the old cooking tools hanging from the ceiling , but the (obviously standard in Israel) open doors despite the winter-temperatures make the place cosy as a wind-tunnel of racing cars .......More

Good welcome and friendly staff. Got a pic with the owner who was lovely but that’s the positives. Food was exceptionally low quality. Paid 450ILS for 5 people and worst shakshuka and lamb shawarma ever. The shawarma was definitely from the day before with extremely...dry bits and tomato base for the shakshuka was not freshly made. Having spoken with locals afterwards they said it is a real tourist trap. What a disappointment as we were so looking forward to it especially after watching Somebody feed Phil on Netflix. Worst meal we had in Israel!More

My worst food experience! A trap for tourists as they bring too bad quality and they charge double! We paid 50(!!!!) Euros each of 9 persons and the proportions were for 3!!! Too dirty and bad quality but the worst they are mocking

I came with my family because I was walking in Tel Aviv. I regret coming to this place. 4 people 4 shawarmas and 4 beers 450 euros. You can do the maths. The bill is hand made and menu without prices. This is the worst...place ever they charge for the bread even if we didn’t order it. They will put it in the table and charge for it. TOTAL FRAUD better to buy bread in the supermarket or whatever please never comeMore

we wanted to take a relative from US to have a good shakshuka so we went to this place that has a good reputation, and the disappointment was big. we were a party of 4 (+baby) so we ordered 2 Shakshuka, one with eggplant and...the other with mushrooms. Since one of the guests dos not eat tomatoes we ordered an omelet with greens . the 2 shakshuka were ok but very ordinary and it was clear that the tomatoes were cooked before and upon order were heated and eggs added. and then the blow came.... they charge 81 Shekels for a shakshuka and, sit tight, 72 Shekels for an omelet !!! if you do not order a Shakshuka they also charge 48 Shekels for a few salads and bread that they serve the bottom line is that this is an overpriced place for very ordinary food i will not go there againMore

After Somebody feed Phil, we were excited to try this place. Shakshuka itself was ok (no more no less). But it was a ripoff. Tourist price. And when we wanted to pay, they took our credit card with them (big no) only to return and...ask for the PIN code as well. Seriously? Don’t try to scam your guests! Focus on the food, and price it decently also for foreign visitors! Never returning.More

After reading all the rave reviews, we decided we needed to stop and try it. I had the original and my husband had the one with the spicy sausage. There was one small piece of sausage! My eggs were not cooked well, and the bread...was stale. Definitely a miss.More

Tried Dr Shaksuka on the recommendation of a friend in the US. I told them about the recommendation and was given two small dishes of couscous and spicy potatoes to try. Had the mixed salad and the aubergine shaksuka. Both were absolutely delicious and the...staff were warm and friendly. After reading the reviews below,I can confirm they gave the a la carte menu and not a fixed one .More

The moment we sat, we were given only the set menus, no ala carte. Food was nothing special. When waiter computed our bill, he overpriced us 140 ILS. He added 100 ILS to the set menus we ordered and topped it off with a 40...ILS service charge. We were refunded in the end but cashier didn't even questioned our bill when I was paying. I don't think this is just a mistake in computation.More

Dr Shakshuka is a very well known restaurant which has a Kosher certificate. Most customers sit at the area at the back, which is rather shabby. Not all plates were clean but we kind of overlooked that trying not to be fussy. Four of us...went there. The waiter kind of promoted the set menu implying that its was ALL for 120 shekel. Looking at the state of the place I thought it is a very reasonable price and we said yes. Unfortunately we did not check the menu for the price and didn't ask either. They charged four people for 630 shekel all together. My beer had a slimy thing in it and they changed it but the food was not too bad. Each of us paid 175 shekel. I would never go there again unless I was too desperate to find a place to eat. When we went there to pay they said that their POS did not work and suggested we use their ATM. Knowing that private ATMs can be used to scam more people I insisted to go to a bank. The bank was not nearby so then he told me to wait and that in five minutes the POS would be fine! And magically it was!More

I have not written a restaurant review in years, however I felt compelled to write this one after getting extremely sick from this restaurant. I was here with a large group during my visit to Tel Aviv and half of our group got very sick...immediately following the meal. I had no trouble anywhere else in the country (for almost two weeks) until I visited this restaurant. Days later I met some other travelers who had been to this restaurant who advised that they also got sick from eating here. It has now been 10 days and my Doctor in the US has put me on two antibiotics to treat whatever parasite or food-borne illness I got from Dr. Shakshuka. Do NOT eat here!!!More

Our family of three wandered in for an early lunch that was less than memorable. Positives: beer was cold, lemonade was cold and good, chicken shawarma was passable. Negatives: Affer quickly sizing us up, we got the special tourist menu (2X the a la carte...menu which we had to ask them to retrieve to order an appropriately priced/sized meal). The shakshuka may indeed have been made by doctor with few kitchen skills. Bland and thin with a limp sausage hastily tossed in. Seemed to have a tough time getting the credit card machine working, but were able to process the cash payment in a flash.More

Heard about this restaurant during covid lockdown by watching Somebody Feed Phil and other travel food shows. Enjoyed the typical Israeli foods. The Shakshuka was excellent and loved by all. The salads and bread were second to none. Plenty of food for the money and...lots of fun.More
