Worst bartender ever! Drinks overpriced. (Music was fun...place emptied completely once the band ended). Have never been totally ignored by such an arrogant person. Please get rid of this employee as he does your business a huge disservice 👎🏼

Sorry guys, but I won't be coming back to this place anytime soon. The place is OK for teenagers. Never meant to disrespect but the menu is very limited. The opening dishes are OK but nothing more. I have ordered a dish called "sausage to those who understand" and in the details they wrote thats it's a german style lamb... More

We went for a night out at the Tel Aviv port and booked a table in Shalvata. First you need to pay 50NIS (15$) just to get in. The host was very unpleasant and was acting like she's doing us a favor allowing us to pay in order to get in. Inside the design is nice and clean, great location... More

Wouldn't recommend this place at all, expensive, tasteless, bad service, rude staff and they con you. We ordered shots and the waitress thought we were drunk, so she started bringing shots of water. When we confronted her, she blushed and made an excuse that the mistake was made by the bar. The funny thing is that she even charged us... More

Shalvata is a great club in the north of Tel Aviv. The only reason that the roof isn't blown off the place is because it doesn't have a roof. However getting in is really hard if you don't know someone on the inside. The girls at the door are only nice to you if they feel like it, and trust... More

We went to this place after a long day outdoors. It is a place by the sea near an airport as we kept on seeing small planes flying just about at 200 ft about to land. We got our tables just besides the sea. We had a large group of about 20 people and the seating wasn't arranged in a... More
