We had spent the day in Jerusalem and were hot, hungry and thirsty when we got back to our hotel in Tel Aviv. We decided to take a walk along the road that runs past the hotel, and within two minutes we found Kinto. There were three people dressed in black and smoking as we stepped onto the veranda of the restaurant and we were somewhat intimidated. One was smoking a cigar. However, they were friendly and welcomed us into the restaurant. We had a good table with a view of the sea. We weren't familiar with the Georgian food and so we asked the waitress what she recommended. She took this to heart and literally told us what we would be eating - lamb chops for my husband and shishlik (steak on a skewer) for me. We also had a tasty tomato salad to start, with unusually shaped Georgian bread. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were generous. We washed it all down with an excellent Israeli Chardonnay.
Our dessert was a traditional Georgian dish - huge portion, so just as well we shared it - a kind of millefeuille, very light and not too sweet, just right to round up our dinner.
The staff were charming, and their lack of proficiency in English was made up by their friendly attitudes.
It was a great experience, highly recommended.
