One of my favorite places in Tel Aviv, unique food amd drink, great service, and great atmosphere. Had a birthday here, and stop by for drinks every week. Small dishes are great for sharing, meat and vegetarian. There are tasty European liquors to try too! Enjoy!

Informal atmosphere, great service, and food is lovely. There's also a decent selection of spirits. The only downside , is that it can become a bit caotic and overcrowded at rush time, so i prefer to go there when it's not full to the brim.

When you only have three nights in Tel Aviv you want to choose well. When you don't have local knowledge you hope you get good advice from your hotel. We asked our hotel front desk where we could get authentic modern Israeli food in a casual setting. We were recommended Port Said which is adjacent to the Great Synogogue. Authentic... More

This typical Tel Avivish street pub with long tables, cold beer and hot weather serves a twist of Bulgarian style snacks. The servings are small so you can choose and taste a lot of small portion dishes. be sure to sit on the bar - its always fun as the staff is very friendly.

Typical Tel Avivian street pub, long tables, cold beer, hot weather... With a twist of interning Bulgarian style snacks. The servings are small which makes this place sort of a tapas bar, it's nice that you can try different dishes, but it also means it's a bit expensive for dinner. Prices for the beers are a bit cheap for Tel... More

This is a Bulgarian "HAMARA", a place to drink, talk and have little dishes. and this is what it is - genuine Bulgarian dishes in a nice atmosphere.

Description
The place is a small bar- serving Bulgarian dishes in tapas style. Food is fantastic, really enjoyed the place. Didn't find their website - perhaps they are too small and dont have a website. There are a few Hebrew websites telling about the place. If you like, I can send you the links..
