Dropped by for lunch - recommended by a nearby shop owner as a place to enjoy some local cuisine. Very cute black cat strutted the place, stretching her dainty paws towards our plates and sitting by our chairs waiting for some food to be thrown her way. I opted for a chicken couscous. The chicken was tasty - but not... More

All the food here is great but the vegetable couscous is amazing. The stuffed grape leaves and eggplant in tahini are also some of my favorites. The waitresses are all very welcoming and the atmosphere is quaint. There's a few cats that linger in and outside but they're all very clean and friendly. Definitely check out this place if you...

Huge portions, reasonable prices, attentive service, nice outside seating, a little tricky to find, because on Google Maps it is wrong marked, but worth the effort.

This is what we remember most. The food (Labane/ Eggplant puree/ Shakshuka/ Meatballs with rice) were good, also the Lemonade and the white wine were tasty. We did not try any dessert because we were well-fed after the food portions we had. Prices are more than fair for a restaurant in this area of Tel Aviv (next to the Shuk... More

The mitbahon which is located next to the carmel market is a great place to eat cheap and have fun. The food menu is on the wall and the dishes are great and big. You can share some dishes and try all kind of tastes.

We happened upon this restaurant by chance when out walking one evening. Loved the look, and were pleasantly surprised with the service and food. Quiet and quick service, choice of indoor or outdoor eating, great menu with some local and more international options, topped with an excellent drink list. Highly recommended if you're in the local area!

Part of the reawakening of the area, this corner cafe / bistro / bar is relaxed in atmosphere but very focused on good quality food, interesting beverages (loved the Malto pale Ale) and great staff. Casserole vegetables in a home made tomatie base with gorgeous fresh long grain rice was a standout. (Beware the feline friends waiting at your feet.)
