I had been referred to Ha Kovshim by the concierge at the Intercontinental where we were staying. He said,"You'll love it!" And he was right. It was so good I ate there twice in three days. It is small. I almost walked by it the first time. Outside are, perhaps, three or four tables, with about the same number inside.... More

Nice cafe with friendly staff and authentic Israeli cuisine. Variety of vegan options but also caters for meat eaters. Well located a short walk from Carmel Market and the beach.

I passed by this restaurant while I was on my way to another restaurant, and out of sheer laziness, just decided to give this restaurant a shot. I'm so glad that I did. I ordered the chicken shawarma, and a salad, and I enjoyed both. The food was so good that I came back a couple of days later and... More

We went there for breakfast on our first morning in Tel Aviv and no joke, it was probably the best croissant I've ever eaten. We also had a waffle with some savory toppings (can't remember what it was called) but that was also delicious. Great place, and highly recommended if you're looking for a good, hardy breakfast or just a... More

Great little place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great, honest food; good portions and good value for money. Very friendly, welcoming staff who made us feel at home right away. Cool place with a good atmosphere for all ages. Enjoyed every meal we had here.

Had lunch on Sat - everything was great! Big variety of dishes for vegans and meat lovers, portions are big, you can easily share one for two. Food is delicious.

Went here after arriving into Tel Aviv at night. Very close to Isrotel Beach Hotel which couldn't seat us for dinner as they had a private function taking up the entire restaurant. Went to Ha Kovshim and we were so happy with the choice. Great mellow restaurant with very friendly staff and a great we'll priced menu. I had the... More

Best chill breakfast to start the morning!!! The music and the people are great, and the food is great! But the coffee is one of the best coffees in Tel Aviv :)

Thank Yairshin
