Restaurants in Tel Aviv

Overall, Israeli cuisine is heavily influenced by Mediterranean food culture and visitors will find plenty of falafel, hummus, olives and other familiar dishes alongside familiar Jewish dishes throughout the Middle Eastern country. Still, Tel Aviv restaurants work over time to buck trends, and visitors will find more than their share of internationally renowned eateries in the city specializing in everything from sushi to fusion. Restaurants in Tel Aviv are interested in attracting and impressing an international crowd and here are a few that excel at it.

If you’re looking for some of the best French cuisine the Middle East has to offer, be sure to visit restaurants like Brasserie M + R, Messa and Olive Leaf, all specializing in haute cuisine using local ingredients, and if Japanese is the name of the game try the sushi at Sushi Samba TLV or Sushi Bar Bazel. Both offer refined takes on the cuisine of the Far East in spades.

If you simply want an authentic Israeli meal, make reservations at restaurants like North Abraxas, Dalida and Port Said, which all feature modern takes on classic local dishes sure to satisfy visiting gastronomes looking for a truly immersive experience.
