Granted the meals are much more pricier here but that's to be expected you are sitting and facing the beach. We went later around 9pm. It was quiet you could still see the water and there were barely no other people. We sat on the deck it was super relaxing and dinner was pretty dang good. Service was slow but... More

Great location. Yummy food. Cool vibe. Great to stop off from the promenade after a day out. Very busy with laid back service.

Beautiful beach restaurant. Casual, but more classy than other places in the area. More tasteful furniture and less tacky than other places at the south end of Tel Aviv's beach.

Banana Beach restauraant, I think that there is more than one, are a great pace to sit and enjoy the Med while having a bite to eat. You can eat inside or outside with your feet in the sand. Prices are fair and food is good. I would recommend.

Only had drinks there. Would not want to eat there. The service is hectic and does not seem to be very professional. It should be cleaner, around the bar and the tables on the deck everything seemed a bit messy.

We ended up here this afternoon and we're lucky for a spot in the sun. We both had fresh juice- loved sitting with our feet in the sand and enjoying the sights. Service was quick and friendly; will stop by again

Service is good and crowded place but a little bit expensive. You can join a good hamburger or just a beer
