Dinner at Raphael was fantastic. Try to sit on one of their sea view facing couches, which are comfy and fun, and maybe catch the sunset if you get there early. Food was fanstatic from the bread basket to the Valrhona chocolatey desert... especially liked their sashimi and tarter first courses. will definitely come back.

I have been a few times at Raphael and I must say that the food is everytime better. I was there this week again and had dinner on the bar. It was really great. The atmosphere, the food and the service was really excellent. And the place where the restaurant is, with great views of the sea make it an impressive restaurant. Highly recommended to anyone who is in Tel Aviv.

The company was excellent, the window table afforded an excellent view, the food was disappointing considering the reviews and word of mouth, and reputation of Raffi Cohen, but the food was nothing spectacular like Mul Yam or even Le Shuk, but the standout of the evening was the awful service. While the wait staff was pleasant enough, they required prodding for our food and dessert. But when we got to the heshbone (accounting or bill) we waited 25 minutes for the return of our credit card. Unacceptable especially since we have had ours fraudulently used under just such circumstances in the past. There are many restaurants Tel Aviv where better food and service are available for less money.

I loved the lamb shoulder with root vegetables over couscous. Marvelous. Restaurant is very stylish and service was very good. A bit overrated with regard to being near the water - its true if you don't mind looking across a street. But for the food - awesome.

The food is very delicious - especially the home made bread (Fucatcha) which is amazing.
You have business deal mid week so the prices are fine until 16:00.
You have some table right on the glass that is facing the sea so make sure you reserve it in advance.
