Testy food. Service is terribly bad. Not worth it. Waited 40 mins since I finished my appetizers till I got the main dish. Got only 1 knife for 2, never got my side dish. No one came to ask if we needed something during the meal. So I got to tell them this only after we ate. Nor the waiter... More

The known place for it's exellent kitchen. The prices sre too high. May recomment lamb, calamary, salat with salty cheese. Bread is very good, especially fucacha. The wine list is rich.

I've had mixed feelings about Raphael over the years, and had my share of both culinary and service disappointments there. But this time the restaurant did a great job. This was a special celebration, and the staff went out of their way to help. Food and wine were very good, and we enjoyed the seating and service. Certainly worth the... More

I was in this restaurant for a business dinner which was lovely but I definitely suggest it for any occasion. Near the beach, great bar, amazing food. I particularly enjoyed the "cigars" which packed some heat, the fish was cooked perfectly, and the wine - Clos Du Gat, is amazing (had a few varieties of this wine at several restaurants... More

Terrible service: we ordered specifically one dish as soon as we sat down to have it ready for the kids. It arrived 2 hours later! Much later than all the other main courses... Food was mediocre: the fish used to be amazing but what we got this time are very odd cuts of a fish (apparently they ran out of... More

There is no doubt about it. The food is good. So is the location with the glorious sea view. But the service today was so unprofessional, that it was embarrassing. Seven of us for a celebratory lunch. A long list of service failures today, from the big ("Yes we know the air-conditioning isn't working properly - we have a problem")... More

We entered and were seated and waited and waited and waited. After 45 minutes, a waitress came and gave us the menus. 30 minutes later we managed to get some water, and placed our orders. 35 minutes latter we got the (wrong) wine, one entire additional hour passed till the appetizers, another hour to get the main course. In the... More

We visited for lunch in the middle of the week. The business lunch is far above the average price for Tel Aviv. From the start staff was not particularly receptive with a surly hostess putting us on a table that was not of our liking, although there were many others available. What followed was a surreal experience. We ordered drinks... More
