We were brought here by locals - thank goodness because the menu is only in Hebrew, although the waitstaff does speak English. We also came back a second time without our local friend and managed to order well even though we can't read Hebrew.

Dishes are small and fun to share. Our favorites were the Brad Salad and the sweet potatoes (although they were out of sweet potatoes the second time we visited!).

Great atmosphere - cool DJ, kind of hipster, all outdoor seating, free "chasers" (aka shots) on the house each time we visited.

Closed on Friday evenings for Shabbat ... although friends told us they reopen very late on Friday night. We went around 8:30pm and they were closed though.

Our best meal in Tel Aviv hands down.

I was taken here by locals (you need to, if you can't read the menu in Hebrew!) We sat outside and the atmosphere is amazing. Get there early as it gets so busy. Fantastic music with a great DJ, our friend picked all the dishes and it was like sharing plates, and each dish was absolutely delicious. Try the beef tartare and the stewed beef and the aubergine with tahina - literally everything we ate was fantastic, even the tahina, the beans houmous and the bread. Then we got an apple pie dessert which was also great. This is a real find and luckily not a tourist trap so don't tell too many people about it, but definitely go!

The atmosphere is great, it's very lively and upbeat and an ideal place to meet with friends. But the staff are aggressive and unhelpful, I waited forty minutes for a table and left after the waiter gave our table to another group.

My Telavivian friend brought me to this place on my recent trip to Tel Aviv and the food was so amazing I came back the following night for more. There is music coming from a turntable and 100s of vinyl records on the side wall. Most seating is outside, although some bar stools inside are also available. The menu is only available in Hebrew so bring a friend who can translate or let the waiter just bring you some dishes on their recommendation. On the two nights we tried several dishes (they are a bit bigger than a tapa but small enough you can share a few dishes between two). The highlights: roasted eggplant, beef carpaccio, and lamb stew. Pretty much everything we tried was delicious, though, if anything their apple crumble with cream was a bit blah. Definitely show up before 8:30 if you want to be assured of a place to sit right away. And don't be put off by the "dishware" which for most dishes is composed of cardboard.
