Hatraklin Restaurant was first opened a decade ago as a
dream come true for the owner and Sommelier Yossi Ben-Udys. The former had
already worked as a manager and sommelier in Tel-Aviv’s finest restaurants as
he was continually self-teaching and acquiring his knowledge in the world of
wine making to a point of being awarded the title of ‘the youngest Sommelier in
Israel’ by the industry’s top critics.

Ben-Udys’s vision for his future restaurant was first conceived
at the young age of 12 as he worked in farms at the upper Galilee region of
Israel, a place he enjoyed riding horses at and admiring the view. Even as a
young man he knew that the future restaurant will have to concentrate on local
Israeli produce, local small businesses and social contribution to communities
in the area.

The name ‘Hatraklin’ translates to ‘The Lounge’ and was
chosen to represent our perception of easy going and relaxed dining experience
incorporating the best quality food and wine that Israel has to offer. We have
made it our cause to offer our customers a warm and cozy environment in which
to experience good service, amazing boutique wines and unmatched quality of

buildings in Tel-Aviv. The house was first commissioned as the first hotel in
Tel-Aviv at the 1920’s. it was commissioned by a prominent wealthy family to
become “Hotel America” a safe haven for the British troops stationed
in Israel at those years. The original painted floors and wall paintings had
been meticulously restored to their original glory.
