This is one of our favorite restaurants. The menu is innovative and the chef Nati Shafrir never ceases to be creative with the local produce. It is a wonderful place for celebrating occasions or for just having a quiet romantic dinner.

Nestled in a suburb of the big port town Ashdod, 30km south of Tel-Aviv, this small restaurant is a gem. Nati, the chef/owner is very innovative, with at least two new menus each season. The flare if French but with a very personal touch. The place is no-frills, simple decor and cozy. The service is always good, but you come for the food.
Always take the chef's tasting menu, it includes a 9 course sampling of the current inventions and gives you the best experience for you money.
If you want a lighter dinner, try the sea food. My wife is hooked in the Coquilles St. Jacques and the mussels are made to perfection.
Balzac is away from the dining hub in Israel, so you get an amazing dining experience at a fraction of the cost a restaurant this good would charge you in the tel-Aviv center area.
