We didn't wait long for service and when the dishes arrived we were well satisfied. The ingredients were fresh, the cooking simple but tasty, and the portions large. The prices were OK (by Israeli standards).

All in all it was not a nice experience. The location is nice but is the only positive point. The seafood is not good and the recipes are very basic. On top of this the bill was extremely high. I discourage to go to this restaurant.

I didn't even finish my dish and I'm already writing this review. This place is horrible!!!! The waiter is very unpleasant and overall service is bad. The dishes are extremely over priced.

Good family run restaurant which needs to sort out a few rough edges. The food was well above expectation - salmon carpaccio was top notch, sautéed mushrooms again excellent, salads and dips were of a very good standard, Fish was cooked to perfection and portions were all generous. The polishing is needed on the service side - while family members... More

We were very happy to find the only kosher restaurant in the Jaffa port (although there are a couple within a kilometer of the port). Don't confuse this restaurant with The Fisherman's Restaurant a block away which is not kosher. The restaurant and bar was very clean with with white linen tablecloths on the tables. The selection of salads and... More

Great sitting outside, although for bigger groups at dinner you need a reservation and it may be easier to sit inside. Very good service, fantastic fresh local seafood, good if a bit basic wine list, very relaxed atmosphere. This was a second visit (first one 2 years ago), glad to say the place is consistent.

I passed this place this morning whilst on my Segway tour so I thought I would pop in. The fish is fresh & well cooked, I ordered a Greek salad, which was very good, but you could feed a family of 4 with. The arab bread is to die for, & I would come for this alone. For fresh fish... More

The restaurant is located in the old city. The seafood platter was very big and delicious. It was more than enough for 3 of us. The service was good and unobtrusive.

Typical seafood lunch in the old Jaffa port outside on the sun. Good grilled fish not too spicy and well-cooked. Good experience on the whole. Recommended for a quick lunch.
