I think we mostly enjoyed Illanit's friendly service! Such a pleasure to meet a true professional with a great attitude and knowledge in what the restaurant suggests. Let's talk food- the first was pretty good ( we tried the chicken liver, carpaccio and sinta salad) The meat was fresh and in high quality and the desserts were good too. The... More

You can choose your own cuts. The cuts were tasty and well prepared. The deal of unlimited housewine is great too.I personally don't need frilly side dishes with my meat. We had the herb salad which was fresh and tasty and a grilled vegie skewer. Perfect. The restaurant's location is a bit surprising. On Salame road,a walking distance from the... More

We had good carpaccio, a nice green salad and to the meat : mixed sirloin and fillet in asian sauce was rather boring and understatement average, lamb ribs were average and entrecote on both was superb.

My boyfriend came here on a previous trip and he really enjoyed it so we had to come back. The concept is fun: you go to the meat counter, pick whatever you want and they bring it to your table once done. The meat was really great and I just loved the huge bottle of wine they served us. Tip:... More

Unique in that you can see the meat you actually gonna eat before it's on fire. Fresh and if you find the right coupon /birthday discount, than it's even not so expensive

You go to a butchers counter, they explain to you about their meats, you choose whatever you want by the kg, and they bring it sizzling hot from the grill. Great concept! The Salame branch is very intimate with a great, antique atmosphere. Service is really good and personal. The unlimited wine is good. The prices are mid range, and... More

Very good meat, and excellent service to come with it - We are a family of meat lovers so many liked it but we had better steaks before. The staff was awesome and it's great for special occasions!

'Only meat' mandates high quality meats. Not so! After a long absence, following previous disappointments, we went again. Starters - mediocre. Meat - except for (maybe) the fillet of beef, were not tender, had much fat, and in general failed to excel.

This is our 5th visit to this amazing restaurant were you choose the meat in person from the boucher. The restaurant is located in an old authentic building in south Tel Aviv. Great meat quality, wide variety of meat pieces to choose from. Very worm and welcoming staff, great service. I would give this restaurant 10 put of 10.

Thank Anat L
