well judged and carefully prepared food with charming service
Directions: About half way along Lilenblum Street
A charming little restaurant in Neve Tzedek, located about halfway along Lilenblum Street. We sat in the enclosed terrace at the front as it was a lovely evening.
The menu has starters, small dishes to share, main dishes and desserts. As we had been grazing on buffets and snacks for the previous couple of days we wanted main courses, although we were torn about not trying the lovely looking small dish menu. We decided to have a bread basket - a big tactical error as it is homemade and delicious and we ate far too much before our main courses arrived.
I had a moist fish fillet on Persian lemon risotto with roast butternut squash, whilst my husband had a lamb ragout with pappardelle.
The service was attentive and friendly and with a bottle of delicious local white wine the bill came to about 300ILS. Recommended.

Excellent bistro specializing in small plates
Directions: On Lilienblum St, on the edge of the Neve Tzedek neighborhood, near Allenby and Rothschild
In a word, I loved Assif. The contemporary food was excellent - a nice change from the traditional (and frequently good) Israeli fare.
We split four small plates. They were all so, so good - a pastry with mushroom and fig, tomato confit pastry, veal cheek ravioli. Good wine list and nice desserts and not particularly expensive. I believe that the menu changes pretty often according to what's available at the markets. But they're doing something right. It's a relatively small place, so reserve at busy times. Very good vibe about the place and someone in the kitchen really knows what they're doing.
