Yaffo Tel-Aviv is located in a beautiful, modern, warm space in a charmless business district. Choose from a table at the bar to observe the spectacle in the kitchen, or a cozier table. Haïm Cohen, star of Israeli Masterchef, is a renowned chef trained in Israel and in France. From Europe he has brought back the codes of flawless, attentive yet relaxed service. His assets are many, including an exceptional wine list with many white and red Burgundies, very rare here, and an excellent selection of wines by the glass. His cuisine is authentic and flavorful. He skillfully uses spices, combining them to delight your palate without overdoing it such as in the tuna with eggplant. He also risks more rustic classics such as lamb neck, a Middle-eastern stuffed lamb stew that he skillfully reinterprets, giving it a Mediterranean touch: pici (spaghetti) and ratatouille. The result is a warm, comforting dish. Another new take on a classic traditional French dessert is the light, Mediterranean style fig millefeuille with vanilla cream. The pastry is delicate and deliciously crispy while the figs are extremely tasty. Yaffo is one of the best restaurants in Tel Aviv offering skillful cuisine without being excessively sophisticated. The Chef is a true alchemist of flavors. He is a generous personality, discreetly keeping an eye on everything both in the kitchen and in the dining room.
