Let’s go!

1. Messa

Messa is one of the most popular up-scale restaurants in Tel Aviv. Hidden in the surroundings of the Sarona Market, this place offers a unique atmosphere with a breathtaking design. Besides the delicious food prepared by Chef Moshe Aviv, this place was selected as one of the “50 most beautiful restaurants in the world”.

If you want to eat something classic and boring, this is not your place. At Messa, dishes offer a creative and unusual variety of ingredients, preparations, flavors, and colors. If we could describe Messa in only 3 words, they would be fancy, fusion, and innovative.

If you want to end a nice evening at Sarona in one of Israel’s best restaurants, don’t think twice: Messa is the place you are looking for.

2. Zepra

Zepra is an amazing place. It may have a different style than the rest of the places mentioned in this list, but it is still one of Israel’s finest restaurants. In this phenomenal restaurant serving Asian fusion cuisine, you might see more businessmen and women rather than families or couples, and that might be because of its location.

The design of their place is also stunning, and the up-scale dishes prepared by Chef Avi Conforti and his team are going to leave you – always – wanting more.

If you are looking for a top-notch restaurant to have a meeting or even to go for a nice date, Zepra’s flavors will do the job.

3. Topolopompo

This is one of Israel’s most famous restaurants. It is fancy, up-scale and extraordinarily delicious. Also by Chef Avi Conforti, this place offers an environment that is totally different from the one at Zepra, while maintaining the best quality, a friendly staff, and a high-standard structure.

As some critics say: “(…) The menu is a paradise for any foodie”. One of the best and most disruptive things they have to offer is their “surprise menu”, in which the waitress asks you a number of questions that include restrictions, preferences and allergies and brings you a few dishes that will amuse you in the most positive way.

If you are looking for a high-class experience you will never forget, Topolopompo is your place.
