I was actually staying at the Crown Plaza nearby, but went in with a lady-friend that evening to the Dan Tel Aviv Hotel to view that Tel Aviv landmark. We were greeted by someone in the lobby at a small table who warmly greeted us in English and served us champagne. Wow! That was a first for me.
He invited us for dinner at the Hayarkon restaurant in the hotel, presenting us with a menu to peek at. It looked appetizing, so we agreed and made a reservation for dinner that same evening.
We arrived at the Hayarkon restaurant at 7:30pm and were greeted in perfect English by the same individual who provided us with the most graceful, professional and hospitable service that I have ever experienced in any restaurant in Israel in my countless trips here. I compare the service to the level of my favorite "The Yorke Arms" Restaurant near home in the UK. It was amazing encountering this level of service in Israel! The food was marvelous for kosher fare, but the care and attention we received overshadowed even the terrific cuisine. The steak and fish my companion and I ate were exquisite and the wine suggested by our host was divine and exactly as he promised.
As per my opinion, in a country sometimes found scant in its service, this Hayarkon restaurant stands out as a pillar of excellence in that regard. Thank you Hayarkon restaurant for the best dinner I have ever experienced in Israel.
P.S. I ate there twice that week before my departure back home, being addicted to the wonderful dining experience provided by that fine gentleman who greeted us at the lobby entrance of the Dan Tel Aviv hotel.
