North Abraxas

Chef Eyal Shani’s gourmet restaurant takes on modern Israeli fare with an eco-friendly vibe, like serving the meals on a piece of paper on the table, no plates! This is our favorite for experiencing the best direction of how Israelis are using local ingredients yet keeping the style rustic.

Port Sa’id

Popular hipster hangout with Mediterranean food.


From the same brother team (Asaf and Yotam Doktor), Ha’Achim and Dok have taken the reigns towards serving up the best of what’s local. Call it “farm to table” if you must, Dok is serving only what you find in Israel- the freshest fish, best olive oils, seasonal produce, boutique wines. Recent dishes include pickled mackerel salad, roasted kohlrabi and fresh chickpea and preserved lemon salad. Ha’Achim serves up some of our favorite dishes in the city. Ha’Achim has more vibe and the dishes are more diverse, in case that is what you are after.


A market restaurant in its pure sense, inspired by the fresh, seasonal ingredients from the adjacent Carmel Market. The atmosphere is casual and prices are quite high for the look of the place.

Milgo & Milbar

A lively spot offering Mediterranean seafood fare that highlights fresh ingredients, well plated dishes, and surprising flavor combinations.

Dynamic Israeli fusion, mostly coming out of their taboon oven. Chef is globally trained, and focusing on his Syrian and Egyptian roots, which plays into the spices and flavors of the creative dishes. We recommend ordering and sharing all of the starters!
