Loved the whole ambiance! Great meal..innovative presentations...even the check came in a purse! Had a delicious fish dish and the chef's mother's soaked semolina cake with tahini ice realm which was amazing! Loved the whole dining experience there.

A well known and may be locally famous restaurant. It seems like we were lucky to find a vacant table yesterday evening without reservation (two persons). The place is dark ( so it's not easy/pleasant to read the menu card) and quite noisy(so having a nice ,calm conversation is a challenge) but on the other hand there is the food! Not the usual courses one can usely find in Israel.Original and varied dishes and of course tasteful. However there is no added value at all bringing the risoto in a big and deep pot. Being different is not the main goal of a restaurant, I presume, but considering all the minuses vs the one and only plus,the food, the result is positive,the last bemol being the price :it is really tasteful and not less really expensive.Is it worthwile?

Amazing place! I highly recommend going for both the food, drinks, atmosphere and service. We had a blast and LOVED with the music played and the chefs and waiters would encourage dancing and singing. What an amazing hidden gem!

This restaurant is a chef-restaurant, usually one would imagine a large and quiet restaurant with very quiet waiters assisting the service. Well, in this case, it was quite the opposite situation. The Restaurant is small, located near Machaney Yehuda market and during all our stay there was a very load music. The waiters were very helpful assisting us (with a lot of jokes and shouting) and the food- just heaven!!!
We made a reservation a month before.
We ordered a double chef tastes (and this means that no one beside the chefs who prepared it just now will know what inside..) we got eight different types, each dish taste even better than before. The pick was the black risotto with Salmon. This was definitely the best dish i ever eaten in my life.
So if you like such a good food, try this one...

Great vibe,service,atmosphere,and food in all of Israel!,,,,the octopus and calamari where exquisite. The polenta is so great you will beg for more. Loved the sea bass too. This chef should be up for an award. Hope he opens up in NY.
