Yafo Israeli Restaurant & Bar – lively, busy, fun and delicious

My foodie friends (the fun ones) are all about this place. I decided to come here one night after drinking a few beers at Kaschk and realizing I needed food before I got drunk. Very “spontan”. Best decision of the month! LOL.

Yafo Israeli Gastro Bar is the kind of restaurant I love. Lively, friendly, busy, fun and delicious. I mean…what a combo!

This Israeli gastro heaven is located on an atmospheric graffitied corner, a few blocks east of Rosenthaler Platz. Between Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg. To get here, take the U-Bahn (U8) to Rosethaler Platz Station and walk for 5 minutes.

When you arrive at Yafo (at least at night), it feels like you are entering a fun party hosted by dear friends. The staff could not be lovelier. We got there without a reservation (probably not a good idea) and they did their best to accommodate us. The mishmash design elements are charming and somewhat random. All very “Berlin-meets-Tel Aviv”. Homey and cool.

The menu focuses on classic Israeli dishes but gives it a fresh and exciting twist. All delicious and comforting, like being hugged by someone you love. Our table ordered quite a few dishes, but the ones we loved the most were: 1) Minced lamb, roasted aubergine and Matbucha; 2) Baked cauliflower (best I have eaten in Berlin). That said, I get a feeling that everything you order here will be very tasty.

This is, no doubt,  the perfect place to hang out after dinner and enjoy drinks with your friends until whenever. I am so in love with it, I might have to move in. I hear it feels more chill and has a completely different vibe at lunch time. I still have to come back to check that out. Or not…maybe I’ll stick to the lively, evening party vibe!

Reservations highly recommended!
