The bistro Raphael is a firm favorite of both tourists and locals, with it's French-Israeli blended menu, enjoyed while taking in the splendid view of the Mediterranean from the restaurant's large windows. Rafi Cohen is the legendary chef who runs Raphael and his dishes are famous for being generous, well-presented and reasonably-priced. Moroccan cuisine is a definite influence in the foods that are successful fusions of different cooking methods.
The fantastic menu has been known to change once in a while but old-favorites usually stay put, the wine selection is substantial and the desserts are heavenly. The popularity of Raphael means that it is worthwhile booking in advance because by 21:00 the place is usually very busy. The next-door Hamara bar offers smaller portions of the same delicious food so if you're looking for a different experience it may be worth checking it out.

Benedict's unique twist in a city heaving with restaurants is that it serves breakfasts 24 hours a day; seven days a week. It will probably come as no surprise that Benedict's special is eggs benedict, and in addition the breakfasts served there can transport one to places all over the globe; Israel, England, France, Texas, to name just a few. Homemade bread and butter accompanies every meal and the portions are hefty- one breakfast is definitely enough for two.
An amusing feature in Benedict's is the will to convince customers that it is morning- all day long- so don’t be taken aback when the waiting staff greet you with a cheery "good morning!" in the middle of the night or by the fact that morning papers can be found there around the clock…

A common complaint among visitors and citizens in Israel is that quality Japanese cuisine simply can't be found in this little country. Incorrect. Onami is, without a doubt, the top Japanese restaurant, not only in Tel aviv, but in the whole country. Lovers of Japanese cuisine, you must check this restaurant out. And for those who don't place Japanese cuisine at the top of their "favorites" list- check this place out, your list might just change…
The menu is hugely varied and very imaginative with a variety of Japanese dishes that most people will never have heard of. At the centre of the restaurant is a large bar where the chefs artfully prepare the dishes. For those with no prior knowledge in Japanese cuisine, take a risk and allow the waiters/waitresses to recommend dishes- they do it well and you are bound to be pleasantly surprised. Prices, as with all top Japanese cuisine are not on the moderate side of the scale but it is worth the splurge.

The stews and meat dishes are by far the best dishes on offer but having said that, the Hummus and falafel are , in their own right, quite…well, perfect. If you’re short on time, you can pick up those dreamy falafel balls at the stand next to the restaurant. You simply won't be disappointed, no matter what you order here; anything from the salad, warm pitta and chicken soup will keep you coming back for more to this legendary restaurant whose bills will make your mouth drop- due to their incredibly low totals!
