First Review by Epstein

A very good vegetarian restaurant - Edit

Meshek Barzilay is located in one of the cutest neighbourhoods of Tel Aviv, Neve Tzedek.
I really love the food here, especially, the Asian dishes: Masala Dosa and Asian Noodles are my favourite.
This is a great place to bring your non-vegan/non-vegetarian friends, as there is something delicious for everyone and the interior is very nice.
NB: There is a Business Lunch served Sunday to Thursday [12pm - 5pm], which is great value for money.

We loved it!! - Edit

We visited Israel for the march for animals rights.
The lovely Tel Aviv ambassador advised us to go there and so we did. We LOVED the pizza and we liked a lot the alioli nioki!
Our friends didn't really like the burger but they liked the calzone.

Pros: Variety, Breakfast menu

Cons: A bit slow service

The Melon frozen Margarita is great and not expensive.

Nice, hearty food - Edit

Nice cafeteria with a good selection of vegan breakfasts. Food is hearty and nutritious. I tried the organic farm breakfast (very big!) and the shakshouka which tofu, which I particularly liked. Wholemeal bread is soft and nice, served warm and is really delicious.

Pros: hearty food, big portions

Meh.... - Edit

I am not sure what the fuss is about here, and I enjoyed much better food overall in Israel. The place is really quite lovely, and the service was good, but other than that, I would not return. I had a vegan shakshouka that was really watery and not all that tasty. Tiny portion too. The bread was the only thing worth staying for. Possibly the best bread I had in Israel - which is saying something. My mother had pancakes which were just OK, nothing special. Not a great meal.

Cons: Pricey given the portion size

אחלה מקום - Edit

מקום אינטימי עם אווירה נהדרת ותפריט מגוון גם אם לא מרבה בכמות המנות. אל תופתעו אם המחירים גבוהים לסוג המנות, שכן כל מנה היא מרשימה בפני עצמה ובעלת איכות גבוהה. לכן הייתי ממליץ על המקום בתור אחד שלא הייתי הולך אליו על בטן ריקה, אבל כן מעוניין להתענג עם טעמים שונים וחדשים.

Pros: תפריט טבעוני איכותי ומעניין, אווירה נעימה

Cons: מחירים גבוהים לכמויות קטנות, מעל 5 אנשים אין כבר מקום ממש

Awesome variety - Edit

We took out daughter here instead of Zakaim which was so recommended because she liked the menu more. I think that was a good decision. We started w a delicious salad of cauliflower with greens, raisins, nuts and chickpeas--it was great. Entrees were a nice seitan pizza, very good but smaller than described. Indian thali was lots of food and very tasty but actually could've been more seasoned. And a veggie lasagne that was delish. The desserts sounded good but just weren't anything we felt like having, so we got cake elsewhere. I know people rave about some chocolate cake here? We didn't see it on the menu. I'd like to give them 4.5 cows.

Pros: Great variety of choices, Very nice servers

Super tasty - Edit

I went there to eat a vegan Shakshouka which was lovely and served with a portion of bread and tahini. I had a great juice ( Detox) and there were so many more options on the plate that I wanted to try...
So I chose a vegan pecan cake with coconut sorbet. Delicious.
The place and the atmosphere is beautiful, sunny and cosy, the staff is very helpful and sweet.
Great place!

excellent all-vegan restaurant - Edit

This is not only all-vegan, it is one of only a few restaurants that is open on Saturday.

There was a large selection of very healthy and tasty items. The also have smoothies which are not the same a s smoothies in the US. These were room temperature blender drinks of fresh vegetables or fruits.

The items we tried were excellent. The only recommendation would be to use less salt in the rice-saitan mixture.

We highly recommend this and will go back there if we have time.

Pros: all vegan, very healthy and excellent taste

Cons: very hard to find., we had to ask several whete it is, a bit too muh salt

One of the best! Don't miss it! - Edit

Meshek Barzilay is one of the best vegan/vegetarian restaurants in Tel Aviv. Their menu is close to 100% organic as well, and the vegan, gluten-free, and nonorganic items are very clearly marked. They have menus in English, just ask for them. The vegan breakfast is one of the best in Tel Aviv. Their salads are simply excellent, being made of the freshest organic produce. Their vegan strawberry crumble is to die for! They are one of the few places that has several vegan dessert selections. And definitely worth checking out the special of the day if you're there for lunch. There is a parking lot next door for a reasonable rate. The place itself is quaint, and in a fascinating neighborhood of Tel Aviv - Neve Tzedek. If you're into photography, bring a camera!

UPDATE: Meshek Barzilay offers (starting next week) a wonderful vegan cheese plate featuring almond feta, and two creamy soy cheeses which vary: olive, smoked, dill. So delicious that you won't believe they're vegan!

Heaven in Tel Aviv - Edit

This is an absolutely delightful restaurant situated in Neve Tzedek, a calm oasis between the Mediterranean Sea and the centre of Tel Aviv. The restaurant is lovely, the atmosphere is very friendly, the service is good and the food is truly delicious. A must for anyone in Tel Aviv who wants to eat vegetarian/vegan.

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly service

Amazing! - Edit

It's interesting to eat at several vegetarian restaurants and compare the feel of the place. This is definitely not your crunchy granola crowd, but upper class Tel Avivians that appreciate fine dining. The food was exquisite. My friend ordered the beet ravioli which was one of the most unique yet delicious meals I have ever tasted. He is non-vegetarian and he said it was one of the 5 best meals of his life. The fruit compote cobbler was incredible too. Eat here and treat yourself!

Pros: Food, Presentation, Atmosphere

What a surprise! - Edit

We were delighted to find this little gem tucked away in Neve Zedek. The physical nature of the restaurant isn't much to write about but the food was fabulous. Real vegetarian gourmet food that you don't find everywhere.

We wish them success and wish there we more restaurants in TA like this. You won't be disappointed

Pros: Top quality adventurous food, Good service, Reasonably priced

Cons: Unattractive environment
