“What a disappointment!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

We were six, it was Saturday afternoon, and we left the restaurant frustrated.
The food has been served cold. The taste was far from being fascinating. Considering the pricing, reputation and expectations our experience was nothing but terrible.
Add clumsy service and unattentive shift manager and there you have the last visit of ours to Kimel.

“A fine choice in the old part of Tel Aviv”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

My eldest son took me to this place to share a tasting menu he pre-ordered. It was a delightful experience - a nice selection of dishes, all well presented and tasty. Definitely worth a try.

“One of the best places in Israel to dine”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We visit Kimel one in a while for evening dinners - the place always satisfies us with a great selection and great taste. It's a restaurant in a country style (food-wise) and they have good wine as well.
It's not cheap, but worth every penny.

“One of the best in Tel-Aviv”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went for an evening dinner. We had to book a week before for reasonable time and location in the restaurant.
both of us took a Steak. There is one size of 250gr, (you can not ask for bigger).
The taste of the steak was excellent. The side dish were even taster than the steak.
It is very expensive but worth the price.

“Average in all means”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

10 or 15 years ago this was indeed one of the refreshing restaurants in Tel Aviv. Unfortunately, nothing really change since then... Nothing more than the average in all means.
