We had a nice, late evening diner at Social Club - warm March, so we were sitting outside, at one of the high tables (by the way, probably better choice that inside, quite noisy). Not easy to describe the place: nothing is wrong, the food is very good, so is wine (once you have realised that for some strange reason there are two partly distinct wine lists), service very pleasant but still that place could be anywhere on the globe....

Anyhow, we had few nice starters (grilled eggplant with tahini, seared tuna, delicious grilled artichokes, foccacia with mozzarella), followed by a very nice Sardinian pasta with seafood. All was very well done and nicely served but missing something that would cause you to come back again and again

I've beem around, worldwide, eaten & dined across the globe. I place Israel (in particular Tel Aviv) amongst my top 5, & that's huge for such a small & young country. Regarding "Social Club", been there 3 times & loved it. Every dish is a celebration to your palate regardless to what you order, & they keep it up, I checked. "Social Club" just got better & better with time. Also it's a fun place with a great atmosphere that you'll find hard to forget. If you're in Tel Aviv, do not miss it.

The perfect mix of a fun place and excellent food. If you want to hang out and also have a 5* meal, that's the place. I have been there several times with friends (and even with my parents) and always enjoyed it.
