gooddinner place with excellent food. It wasnot really cheap but worth all we paid for. Try to get a place in the upper part of the restaurant it is more interesting than downstairs.

Description
Restaurant "David and Joseph" DOWNTOWN located 21 Montefiore Street, Tel Aviv. Chef Dudu Almkias, behind 10 years of experience acquired in restaurant kitchens in the country and abroad alongside Chef Yossi Shitrit, with a wealth of experience in some of Israel's leading restaurants. They started out together about 3 years ago, a small structure bar at Jeremiah Street with 16 seats and dreamed of opening a quality institution that serves Mediterranean cuisine serving fish and seafood, along with fine alcohol with a special focus to music and the atmosphere speaks for itself. The dream became a reality and after three years in the small building, the restaurant moved in January 2013 to its new and distinguished place - 21 Montefiore Street The restaurant is spread over two floors and an outdoor terrace overlooking the street. Much work has put into the sound system and interior acoustics and the opening of the restaurant accompanied by consultant DJ "funky Fish" who has formed a unique music for the restaurant.
