“A Tasty New Spot at the Tel Aviv Museum”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Sssshh....don't tell too many. Pastel is a place apart--down a set of outside stairs into a magical space in the side of the splendid new building. The terrace abuts a beautiful garden with Eucalyptus trees towering above, and the inside space is architecturally elegant and intimate at the same time. And the food? Everything we ordered was delicious! Gaspacho with mustard ice cream, a delicately prepared fish fillet seasoned with herbs, or a robustly flavored piece of veal--
we finished our meal with sated palates and sensory satisfaction. Service was accommodating and timely. Can't wait to go back...

Reviewed September 22, 2013

Located in the new modern section of TLV Museum, this new restaurant is a very good place for hangout - indoors and outdoors bars and various sitting areas, very tasty food, good music, modern decor, vibrant crowd, very friendly and attentive service. We went there twice and enjoyed it very much. We will be happy to return soon
