What to See
Tucked down a quiet street off Rothschild Avenue, this slick little bistro serves up some of the best schnitzel in town. Chose from chicken, veal or pork schnitzel with mashed potatoes and a crisp green salad.
Café Noir 43 A’had A’am, Tel Aviv
Style it out at this contemporary Italian restaurant and feast on fresh sardine puttanesca and octopus carpaccio. They make incredible home made pasta, like their tagliatelle with veal Bolognese and spaghetti with chilli and garlic, which all come whole grain and gluten free.
Bindella Montefiore no. 27, Tel Aviv
With a massive bar and huge outdoor terrace, this modern bistro is the perfect place for a boozy dinner, serving up Mediterranean food spiked with a few Asian dishes, like spicy Thai shrimp salad, a huge juicy burger or a delicate plate salmon tartar.
After dinner, head to the door on the left of the restaurant with the ‘out for lunch’ sign, it’s one of Tel Aviv’s hottest clubs – boom!
Social Club Rothschild Blvd 45, Tel Aviv
Just off Carmel Market this little restaurant is the perfect place for a lazy lunch. The menu changes daily, with incredible dishes like crab borek, grouper kebab and fatoush salad.
Hidden at the back of the tiny kitchen is a wicked little chef’s table, where chef Itai Hargil will wow you with this fabulous cooking.
Habasta Hashomer 4, Tel Aviv
Hole in the Wall Falafel
Head to the no-name falafel shop at 64 Alanby street for a snack you won’t forget; soft herby falafel with crunchy salad in a pillowy pitta, which you can pimp with your choice of pickles, herbs and a killer chilli sauce.
Take a seat in the sun with the beautiful people and enjoy lots of delicious small dishes and plenty of ice-cold rose. And when you are ready to rock, head to the terrace at the back of the bar where they have a DJ playing all afternoon. This was one of our favourite Tel Aviv restaurants.
Café 12, Rothschild 12, Tel Aviv
Enjoy the best breakfast you have ever eaten at this no frills restaurant, surrounded by ‘leader-like’ pictures of the owner.
Shakshuka is a Libyan dish of spicy lamb patties cooked with loads of tomatoes, garlic and paprika. Eggs are cracked in and the whites stirred into the tomato sauce to thicken it. It is rocking!
Dr Shakshuka Beit Eshel, Jaffa, Tel Aviv
The restaurant of this fabulous art deco hotel is worth a visit even if you are not lucky enough to be staying. With a nod to Vietnam, the menu features fresh SE Asian dishes and wonderful light Mediterranean food that mix surprisingly well. It is the perfect place for a sophisticated dinner before a night on the town.
Hotel Montefiore 36 Montefiore St, Tel Aviv
With three restaurants throughout the city, an all day breakfast menu and a 24-hour licence, these awesome diners are the only place to go and eat at 3am after you spill out of a club. As the name suggests, their eggs benedict are the best in the city.
