Address: Retsif Herbert Samuel St 131, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
Tel Aviv-Yafo

Can’t decide over a beach day or spending the afternoon hitting the hottest restaurants in Tel Aviv? Well, who says you can’t do both at once? Lala Land on Gordon Beach offers just that—now you can enjoy a delicious meal while having your toes in the sand and watching the waves roll by.

Lala Land Restaurant was launched in 2006 by Ori Shtark, Yaron Pri-Hadas, Shahar Manzur and Yossi Guri, four pioneers with immense experience in the field of pass time and nightlife in Tel Aviv out of a fundamental belief that a beach is not just a beach, and led by the desire to upgrade Tel Aviv’s beach culture. Lala Land now brings in tons of Israelis and tourists world wide to the restaurant every day.

Despite their high prices, you’re paying for an extremely satisfying meal that comes with a beautiful view. The menu offers a long list of options ranging from salads to sandwiches to fish and all the way to pizza. For every course there are many must haves: you can’t start the meal without the warm house bread from the brick oven, and of course don’t leave without grabbing something for dessert.

Most importantly, what would be a meal on the beach without a cocktail in your hand? Start or end with one of their fabulous drink options during the meal because this you for sure don’t want to miss.

However, don’t come to Lala Land with the expectation of very quick and extremely friendly service. Go with enough time, maybe even more than you think you’ll need, to sit down for a full meal because it is definitely not a grab-and-go kind of restaurant.

Not only does Lala Land provide a great meal, but tie in the laid-back, island-like atmosphere and this should make the restaurant a priority to visit before leaving Tel Aviv.
