5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The small and medium sized dishes (most of the dishes fall into this category) were refreshingly inventive, creative, and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere and ambience featuring an open kitchen and a beautiful garden in the back were hip and tasteful, while the service was helpful, friendly, actually perfect. A must!!!

We've been there last night with friends, It's been a long time that I wanted to go to this restaurant and it was worth it. The food is excellent - everything we've tried was very good, from starters to desserts. The food is very creative (but not too creative so everyone can find what to eat). The service was very...

Nice place, cozy... But... Very complicated menu, everything we've tasted was just average, nothing special for the price and reviews I've seen before going. ... Wine was excellent.... But expensive

I had the pleasure to dine at the Popina during my resent trip to Tel Aviv & I truly enjoyed not only the creative & slightly unusual set up of the menu & cooking style but also the great execution. A fantastic dinner & highly recommendable.

Amazing staff including Maryanna the Hostess and Nima our amazing server. Great food, nice wine list including boutique local wines and great atmosphere. Plexiglass floor at entry overlooks wine cellar and the restored building is anchored by the center bar overlooking the chef's cooking stations. Truly a dining experience not to be missed.

Serious good food and a good concept. Plenty of choices between beautifully prepared fish, unusual chicken (decadent) and good meat. The cold soup starter was heavy and extremely tastefull. The fishmaincourse with risotto superb and the chocolat souffle beautifull. a good and varied winelist completed with a huge collection of single malts makes this an excellent restsurant where we had...
