Hotel Montefiori, Tel Aviv

The restaurant at Hotel Montefiore prevails upon being a hip French brasserie with a touch of Vietnamese. This is a slight overstatement as we do not consider a garnish of corriander or steamed bok choy to suffice as Vietnamese influence. But, we completely forgive for the food and atmosphere are top noch.

We entered and were asked to wait a few minutes during which we were served a glass of cava. We don't like waiting but we like cava.
For starters we ordered the beef carpaccio with hazelnut oil which was simple and very well executed and a fun and fresh amberjack seviche with hot green pepper, avocado and coriander.
The main coarse was a delicious and light grilled sea bream with lemongrass cream and a tender braised goose in a caramelized sauce with kumquat. We loved the goose and licked our lips till the very end.
For dessert we had saint honore, cream puffs filled with creme pattissier and accompanied with whipped cream, a perfect ending to a perfect evening.

Hotel Montefiore is a favorite. They also offer business lunch and drinks from 5-7.
Reservations are a must.

  1. I agree when it comes to enjoy royal experience, nothing would be as good as to stay in the luxurious hotel. These hotels equipped with fabulous amenities and provide great hospitality to their customer. When we visited there we stayed at one of the good boutique hotel in Tel Aviv that just provided the similar services you mentioned above.
