The Azrieli Centre is the biggest commercial centre in the entire Middle East and is made up of three buildings; one cylindrical, one a square cuboid, and one a triangular prism. On the forty-ninth floor of the cylindrical building is the highest observatory in the Middle East. The spectacular view stretches from Ashkelon in the south to Hadera in the north and on clear days one can see Jerusalem in the east!
Entrance to the Azrieli Observatory is via the third floor of the Azrieli mall which is situated in the cylindrical building and at the entrance admission is paid (20 NIS for adults). There is a speedy elevator to take visitors up to the forty-ninth floor and once there, one can rent telescopes and audio equipment to enhance the experience.
There is a restaurant on the forty-ninth floor called "2C" where one can enjoy phenomenal views of Tel aviv while dining. The restaurant is known for it's Kosher Mediterranean gourmet dishes that can be enjoyed from the highest perspective of Tel Aviv possible! For reservations call (03) 6081990.

Didn't go up, but I called to ask questions and the lady on the phone (she said her name was Amit) was very rude! They need to work on their customer service.
Highly recommended!! Azrieli Observatory gives a clear look on Tel Aviv...must see!!
