Description: Café Noir is a long-established bistro in the heart of Tel Aviv's city, strategically placed between the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and Rothschild Boulevard. It's considered aninstitution by Tel Avivians, and our regular customers are business and media people, artists and in fact anyone who appreciates a terrific atmosphere and good food.Cafe Noir extends over two levels, offering a choiceof intimate sitting areas and spacious seating that's equally suitable for businessmeetings or family celebration. The décor comprises dark wood furniture in classicstyle, a spacious and inviting bar, with oil paintings on the walls and art objects arranged on surrounding shelves. Soft lighting effects create the perfect dining atmosphere. On fine days we have outside seating so guests can watch the bustling life on the streets of Tel - Aviv.Café Noir is busy throughout the day and until the small hours – some enjoying a hearty breakfast, others dropping in for a business meeting, and later evening drinks at thebar.We offer a rich menu – such as our lunchtime starter of liver pate with pear confit, sirloin Carpaccio, and chilli shrimps. For main courses, it's a tough decision choosing between our renowned Café Noir schnitzels - chicken breast, pork, or milk-fed veal - and the meat dishes, lamb kebabs, hamburgers, entrecote. Fish, salads and seafood are always reliable options.

Great bistro, the schnitzel was delicious and service impeccable. Reservation was easy in English and the person was very friendly. The place was very busy, great atmosphere and music.

I have to agree with the reviewer below who suggests eating at the bar. I visited recently on a very busy mid week night (a good sign in itself I guess) so had to sit at the bar but this was a bonus as the staff behind the bar were extremely helpful. They recommended a fantastic calamari and shrimp starter and a good main plus a nice glass of Red wine and most importantly made a top drawer Negroni. Good work and thanks.

Very consistent. Love their Fetush salad and their veal Milanese. Nice wine list. Good to go with a small or larger group.
Great location where there are lots of good restaurants and cafes. Hard to find parking in the street.

In a city where coffee shops and restaurants close and re-open all the time, this place stands for many years. Famous for many dishes now gone, it still offers great food. Famous for its shnitzel and others, a must try.

Cafe Noir is an old establishment, French name and French atmosphere in the heart of Tel Aviv, who is renown for the fantastic shnizel dishes. I also like the deserts :-))
