In contrast to the colorful facade of Hotel Dan Tel-Aviv, its gastronomic restaurant offers understated elegance with a cozy atmosphere, beautifully set tables and fine dishware. The service is extremely attentive without being stifling or overly formal. The wine list which includes only Israeli wines is extremely informative including notes about geographic origin, the year, the grape variety and the taste. The short menu gets right to the point: tataki, beef sirloin, lamb, all elegant and carefully prepared. The cuisine is traditional and the meat is cooked just right. This is a perfect place for a romantic dinner, in a timeless, Orient-Express atmosphere. Pini Waknin has got the award of the Gault&Millau Best Maitre d'Hotel 2018.
