Best Tel Aviv Restaurants

Tel Aviv

One can easily argue that Tel Aviv is the gastronomic center of Israel.

In addition to a bustling outdoor market (Carmel shuk), cooking schools, several natural food stores, and cafés and eateries too numerous to count, Tel Aviv boasts the most top-ranked restaurants in Israel.

This list for fine dining in Tel Aviv comes from Al Hashulchan magazine’s 2009 Guide to the Top Restaurants in Israel, December 2008.

(Sometimes Israeli restaurants change their hours (or close!) in tough economic times, so we recommend you call ahead to confirm hours of operation, and to make reservations if necessary.)

Note that kosher restaurants are not open during the Jewish Sabbath (Friday evening and Saturday until after sundown).
