Description: Onza is the place where a young, vibrant Tel Aviv atmosphere combines with the magic and mystery of the Jaffa flea market to make a delicious restaurant “cocktail”. Here, a sophisticated and innovative bar is blended with a meticulous menu created by chefs Arik Darhani and Muli Magriso that gives Ottoman and Turkish cuisine a contemporary twist, using the finest ingredients and advanced cooking techniques. The outdoor scenery is composed of Jaffa alleyways that are filled with fascinating sights, scents, and ancient secrets on every corner, and this ideally complements the restaurant’s interior. Designed by architect Dan Troim, the restaurant features a large bar, tables that extend out into the street and a private room for events. Soft contemporary music accompanies you throughout your meal, linking the ambiance with perfect Tel Aviv-Jaffa entertainment. From the first bite to the last drop, you’ll understand why Onza’s motto is “Food & Vibe”.

We heard good things about Onza, and decided to try it out. It turned to be a very nice restaurant, in the romantic alleys of the flea market in Jaffa.
Our waiter was very helpful and attentive, and happily recommended and explained the different dishes. The food was excellent - delicate tastes, lovely way of serving. The dishes were medium in size, but that was okay. We really enjoyed the "Egg from the Kitchen Market" dish, which was very flavorful. The Burnt potato and red tuna salad was good, although serving the potato in a higher temperature would make it even better. The Lahmi Bajin was excellent as well. The Polenta was very tasty, but cooled down faster than we had hoped.
We also had a couple of cocktails, which were okay, and desserts, which were very good and not too sweet.
All in all we had an excellent time, enjoyed the place, the service and the food, and highly recommend it!

Attentive and friendly staff...as a matter of fact, one of the co-partners took the time to explain the menu. He gave us specific recommendations after ferreting out what type of meal each of us was looking for. And the food? Amazing! Definitely try the "egg" for starter.
