Very bad service, very poor food, steaks under rated , in fact one of the worst meat I had in my entire life , and it is really not good for foreign tourists. There is no way to find any kind of transport back to your hotel ( no taxis, nothing available near by and no Help for you to find a transport back. They just say you can walk until you find a taxi!! And this in a middle of a heavy rain !!! Bad food, bad service , very expensive for what you get, and no help for any kind of transport!! Never come back again !!

Hello, my friend.
I'm shahar, your waiter from last night.
I'm surprised to hear now that you did not enjoy the meat, because last night you and your wife enjoyed our seered serloin.
It was impossible to find a taxi while it was raining, that's true. I don't think we are to blame for that. May I remind you that I called your hotel from my phone, and the front desk could not get a cab for you, as well.
You forgot to mention our lovely conversation about Israeli wines, and the excellent wines you and your wife had. 3 glasses of the cabarnrt franc, I think.
And of course, the dessert we added on the house.
I think you had excellent meat, excellent wine and superb service, and not getting a cab ruined your experience. Again, sorry for that.
Hope to see you again soon,
Shahar

A great location in old building with great atmosphere, quite dining area, nicely decorated and very modestly.
We had the Sinta on rocks - which was heaven and rocks steak . Antipasti, liver pate and carpaccio all were delicious. They only serve boutique wines from Israel which we had 2 types red and white all are top of the line.
Don’t miss the desert of the Chocolate ball - highly recommended and not too sweet, the sorbet was unique and tasty as well.
The vegetarians had their share as well with delicious ravioli and artichoke.

Service was great, we spent 2 delicious hours with the family.
Reservation is a must as it was completely books.
Certainly one of the best restaurants in Tel Aviv.

I know this place for long. Paid a few visits in the past. Every time Im there I regret I dont call on this place more often.

It is known as a steakhouse and I'm known to be vegan (now), nonetheless, this place has the best culinary options if one values gourmet / Nouvelle-cuisine.

By the same token, it's a place of a good spirit, hospitability, and romance. You'll be amazed to find how super-service oriented the stuff is and you'll be inspired by the stories they always got to tell (about the place and their journey)

I bet that If you are looking for a multi-sensuous experience in Tel Aviv, this would be the place to go to.

If you are interested in eating good meat and drinking good wine this is the place for you. Everything in this place is great. From the food to the quality of the service and the atmosphere everything deserves 5 stars.
