Pastel was voted the “Most beautiful restaurant in the world”, at the Space Design Awards Ideas Tops 2014. This is thanks to its pretty outdoor architecture, a very beautiful terrace, and a prime location on the magnificent esplanade of the Tel-Aviv Art Museum. We appreciate the efforts in terms of presentation such as the beef tartar presented in a marrow bone cut lengthwise, along with the lovely textures of meat such as the grilled filet of beef, and the interesting ideas and flavors. We especially like the artichoke salad. Pastel is more of a brasserie with attentive, dynamic service. We recommend lunch over dinner, and eating on the terrace so as to enjoy the magnificent environment, which paradoxically, is peaceful with its protected terrace, and exciting to watch the action taking place outside.
