Named for the Tel Aviv promenade (which was named for the high commissioner of Palestine), I can only describe the Herbert Samuel restaurant as offering some of the best gastronomical pleasures that I’ve experienced in this country to date. Chef Adir Cohen is the mastermind behind this impressive cuisine. The menu is eclectic but with a Mediterranean touch, and it’s clear that careful thought is put into each dish to produce esthetic, creative and delicious results.
The restaurant itself overlooks the Mediterranean on Hayarkon, giving you a dining experience you will never forget (if you don’t mind the gas station across the way). The wait staff is coolly clad in jeans, button-down shirts, ties and aprons.
Our waitress was friendly and took care to make us feel at ease.
