At Hatahana, one of the most historical areas of Tel Aviv, old meets new, and Cameo embraces all of the old train station’s magic. Stepping inside, one is immediately greeted by the restaurant’s eclectic, almost otherworldly charm. It is an intimate place. A sleek lounge bar functions as the centerpiece of the restaurant, and customers can either sit there for a quick drink or at one of the surrounding tables. One can also enjoy the outdoor open terrace, which plays host to live music, with private cabanas for intimate parties.
Cameo’s menu is a Mediterranean culinary melting pot, and the food on offer is simple yet luxurious and indulgent. Famed local chef Arik Wakil’s (formerly of Nana) knowledge of food versatility was apparent in the taster’s platters we were served.
