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.

“Good bistro”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Pleasantly surprised by this neighbourhood bistro. Food and service was good, and the place was packed with locals (on a Monday night). A two minute walk from the Rothschild hotel.

“Second visit not the same.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We spent a week in Tel Aviv in 2011 and remembered really enjoying this little bistro. We were sorely disappointed on this trip. The food was bland, the service was marginal and the server knew she was disappointing us and did help redeem herself by serving us a complimentary dessert. Maybe we hit them on a bad night but I would hesitate to go back given all of the other choices in the city!

“Delicious menu and professional service”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Great bistro, beside the schnitzel, which is their specialty, many dishes are excellent.
We’ve visited several times and tried shrimp & calamari, veal schnitzel, roasted potatoes, Bavarian sausages and all kinds of dessert. Was good, prepared from quality ingredients.
Better to make reservation ahead since the place very busy. Good atmosphere, professional service.
Located few munities walk from Rothschild Boulevard.
