“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

The food was good, some dishes better than others, but they were expensive and very very small, besides the first course i had to have 2 main courses to be satisfied, and i must say i dont eat that much...the service was really nothing to be proud of, waiters were polite, but prefered to be talking to each other and "fixing" napkings on the empty tAbles rather than to help us with what we needed...
for the price you end up spending, you can find pretty much better restaurants in tlv...

“Truly one of the best and original food in Israel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

One of the best restaurants in Israel. The food is original and very tasty. We mande a reservation and came a quarter of an hour late. Our table was ready but we didnt like the young waitress reminding us in a somewhat serious voice that the table is only for 2 hours. As adults and the restaurant guests it shouldnt be done. But the service was excellent and we enjoyed our second time very much and we think highly of the chef work and creativity.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Ordered smoked duck from the Specials menu - lacked freshness, felt overcooked and had an after taste of mud. Crispy "decadent" chicken from the regular menu was better with crispy skin on a piece of bread. Perhaps too much on the creamy side. Better was the recommended jam ravioli with foie gras which had a nice taste. The best part was probably the beetroot salad which we ate as starter.

Service was good. But I'd say stick to the recommendations, go for the fresh produce or cold cuts which on other tables looked tastier.

“Worth the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Very tasty and unique dishes. Pricey but worth it for us. Recommend the Mango Soup dessert and the goose liver ravioli.
