With a pavilion open to the sea on a quiet stretch of beach between Tel Aviv and Jaffa, this is a great place to watch the rolling waves by day, or take in the sunset while you dine. The delicious meal starts when you choose from an offering of 12 small appetizers brought around by your waiter (the fish and seafood tapas are best—make sure to have the dishes explained to you and choose a few that you like). Stars among main courses include sage-scented sea bass, the vegetarian chestnut risotto with Manchego cheese, and the seafood plate prepared in four house special styles. A seafront table is essential. Call ahead to reserve one.
