Well, Yotvata used to be good and innovative years ago - when they came with the fresh fruits and huge portions.
But since then they became more expensive, smaller portions (still big) and the other places became much much better.
It's not terrible, just not amazing - and also: you'll be surrounded by noisy big groups of kids there.
When I bought a milkshake at the take-away counter which was not cheap!! I was denied to sit at one of the tables because I had ordered something to take away. Even though every table in this part of the restaurant was empty! And those tables were not even the normal tables, but rather round café-style tables.
And the prices for a milk to take away and to consume in the restaurant would have been exactly the same!
Also, the food is not that great. (And not the cheapest, either.)
Favorite Dish I'm not going there.
This popular spot right on the Med has the ambiance of a hustling big city restaurant, but you're never rushed. The food comes in daily from a local kibbutz and is delicious. The first time we ate here was on our first night in Israel. We were stopped at the door and scanned for weapons by security. From then on, we were never forgetful of where we were. It was the start of an amazing and exciting trip.
Favorite Dish The salads were very fresh, the portions were hugh, the outdoor setting overlooking the promenade was magnificent, and the price was moderate. What more can you want while traveling?
First I would describe this chain of reaturants as a diner, although they serve only dairy dishes you can find pretty much everything there. But their speciality is fruit shakes. Mmmmmmm delicious! The Yotvata restaurant was named after a kibbutz "Yotvata" which is located on the South of Israel about 25 miles from Eilat. This kibbutz is known for it's dairy products since about the 1960.
Yotvata restaurants can be found almost in every city in Israel, but the one in Tel Aviv is the busiest one. While you walk on the Tel Aviv's promenade ("Tayelet') grab a fruit shake or spend an hour on dinner, you won't be disappointed! It is open 7:30am-4am daily.
Favorite Dish Fruit shakes are the best, but their salads and onion soup are very good as well.
This is a place that is open all day but I think their breakfast is great and their lunch/dinners are so-so (although VERY generous). Their breakfast comes with a fruit shake of your choice of fruits instead of the usual orange juice that the other places offer. That pretty much seals the deal for me. The rest of the breakfast is all very good to, try it! Yum.
