We serve a tasting menu experience, served to all diners at the same time.
Seating is around a bar placed in front of the open kitchen, so the guests get a view of all the activity carried out by the kitchen staff.
The tasting menu, which changes from time to time, is created by Chef Raz Rahav who draws inspiration from the local culture, raw materials, history and ‘chutzpa’, while being aware of the availability of raw materials and the season, influences from around the world and memories.
The nature of the meal requires a set menu that is not presented to the diners when they arrive. We encourage you to come with an open mind, and together with the other diners, experience new tastes and raw materials. At the same time, we are heedful to culinary limitations such as pregnancies, veganism, vegetarianism, kosher adaption and allergies. Please make sure to mention it at the time of making your reservation. We will not be able to change the menu during the meal itself.
Make sure to add a note with your reservation stating which menu you prefer from our suggested menus:
Our tasting menu (no limitations)
Kosher adapted menu (no pork and no shellfish)
Please note: if you have a food allergy please contact us by phone or e-mail
We will not be able to make changes in servings during the meal.
Preparing a dish during service time
Separation of fresh carrot leaves to be used for our carrot dish
The Palamida Pickling Process We pickle our Palamida with a special mixture of hot spices, seaweed and Atlantic salt for a whole night
Turnip strips and yellow beets are pickled in liquid white balsamic in vacuum before and after rolling.
We dry the carrots for the night in 54 degrees in order to obtain a rich powder, full of flavor.
The price of the meal is 345 ₪ for a full meal. The meal price includes mineral/sparkling water. Alcohol is not included in the price of the meal and a wine and alcohol menu is served in the restaurant which can also be found on our web-site. It is important to note that the restaurant does not serve soft drinks other than mineral water and sparkling water.
An order for three diners or more will be placed in a corner. If there is no corner available we will mention this at the time of the order.
You can order a gift certificate through the website menu or by telephone through the restaurant. The voucher is received by e-mail and it can be printed. The cost of a voucher for a meal for two is 740₪. You may upgrade the voucher and add a glass of wine for each diner or a bottle of wine per choice.
It is important to note that the first cold dishes served with fish will be replaced with a vegetarian dish rather than a meat dish. The hot fish dishes will be replaced with meat dishes.
We encourage you to try and sense the whole meal experience together with the other diners. The menu is tailored to suit the Israeli public and no ingredients such as ants or insects will be served. However, in an extreme case of aversion to certain raw materials, please make sure to mention this at the time of making the reservation and we will try to adapt the meal accordingly.
The meal is served at the same time to everyone present. Your being late will impair the experience for all guests. If you know you are going to be late, please indicate this so we can prepare accordingly. A diner who is late by 30 minutes or more will join the meal from the stage it is at when they arrive.
We are not Kosher. We are open on Friday evenings and work with non-kosher raw materials. You may request a dairy or meat kosher meal according to the following guidelines: For a person who does not eat milk after meat, a dairy menu will be served with fish only. For a person who does not eat milk and meat in the same dish, a menu with meat and fish can be served. Of course, no seafood or white meat (such as pork) will be served in the kosher menus.
Part of the meal experience is for you to taste new flavors and raw materials, and step out of your comfort zone. It is important to note that as with any meal, you may find some of the dishes tastier than others. Some of the dishes may be more surprising than others, some more daring than others. We try to convey a "story", and construct the meal in a certain way. Except for very extreme cases, it will not be possible to make changes to dishes during the meal.
You may cancel your reservation up to 48 hours prior to the time of the meal without charge. Cancellation of the meal after this time will be charged 50% of the cost of the meal per person.
We are a small restaurant that seats only 19 people. Every cancellation affects us much more than any other restaurant. The raw materials and the staff are determined and coordinated in advance according to the number of diners. The credit card is taken for deposit, and is charge 50% of the cost of the meal when you make a reservation. This charge will be deducted from the dinner payment at the end of the meal. Please notice, if you cancel your order less than 48 hours prior to the time of the meal or if you do not arrive at the meal, the deposit payment will not be refunded.
