But all of the other dishes were excellent as well. Topped off with some great deserts (frozen creme brûlée for example). I will definitely return on my next... More

We visited the restaurant on a Friday night. Reservation should be made because on weekend the place can get crowded. Once you try the food you understand why. It's perfect. I'm a friend of tasty food without the usual stiffness of fine dining. This restaurant exactly what you should do if you want to have excellent food in a laid... More

My husband and I were staying at the Sheraton and were recommended this restaurant by the concierge. We were not disappointed! The food was fantastic - fresh and very tasty. Modern Israeli at its best. We asked for a wine recommendation and they brought us a beautiful Israeli wine which wasn't on the list. We had a few of the... More

Restaurant "David and Joseph" DOWNTOWN located 21 Montefiore Street, Tel Aviv. Chef Dudu Almkias, behind 10 years of experience acquired in restaurant kitchens in the country and abroad alongside Chef Yossi Shitrit, with a wealth of experience in some of Israel's leading restaurants. They started out together about 3 years ago, a small structure bar at Jeremiah Street with 16 seats and dreamed of opening a quality institution that serves Mediterranean cuisine serving fish and seafood, along with fine alcohol with a special focus to music and the atmosphere speaks for itself. The dream became a reality and after three years in the small building, the restaurant moved in January 2013 to its new and distinguished place - 21 Montefiore Street The restaurant is spread over two floors and an outdoor terrace overlooking the street. Much work has put into the sound system and interior acoustics and the opening of the restaurant accompanied by consultant DJ "funky Fish" who has formed a unique music for the restaurant.
