5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

My wife and I had dinner on thursday night. We sat on the bar and watched the art of the cooks preparing all the meals, amazing!!
The place is designed with very fine taste. We especialy loved the wine beneath the glass floor. The service was profesional and kind.
The meal we had was incredible, such unique taste and very well cooked. Will return again definetly

“A great addition to the Tel Aviv culinary scene!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

My eldest son introduced me to this establishement. He's had a meal prepared jointly by the young chef of this restaurant together with the chef of Catit, and was very impressed. I was not disappointed. The menu is very unique - divided into five segments by the process dishes are prepared. The quality is outstanding, befitting the reputation this young chef has earned. A must try!

“Just Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Undoubtedly one of the best meals we had for a long time.
Middle of the week, the restaurant was full and happy.
We had a dinner at the bar, so we had a chance to see the art of cooking and serving
Great dishes, great staff, great atmosphere.
We will return soon!

“Incredible!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Nothing short of amazing. The venue is modern yet authentic, features a spotless and well organized open kitchen and bar. The crew are friendly yet profoundly professional and courteous. The menu is the game changer...from the cocktails to the dishes. Not a fan of Beetroot but the staff recommended the Beetroot Margarita and wow was it sublime! The food was extraordinary, the best I've had in Tel Aviv and beyond! The dishes were original, beautifully plated and each dish was simply amazing. Every dish had a punch to it and the combination of flavors really brought the dishes to life in a way that I haven't experienced in a while. I highly recommend Popina & will definitely be back!

“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

If you are looking for the best restaurant in Tel Aviv, look no further. Popina is your place!
This restaurant serves the most unique created dishes. Not only they are absolutely delicious, but the presentation is a work of art. I have been to Popina numerous times and was never disappointed. The restaurant's staff greets you with warmth, the servers are helpful and nice, the atmosphere is wonderful, and every customers is made to feel like they are the most important person in the place. I have traveled the world, ate in fine restaurant, and I have to admit that Popina can stand side by side with any top notch restaurant around the globe and probably do better.
