Authentic food with a lovely taste at a reasonable cost. This restaurant had everything from the delicious special gin and tonik with cucumber and ginger to the potatoes and herring and not to mention the curried chicken strips with vegetables, rice and coconut milk. Big portions and very enjoyable indeed. Soulful, nutritional food and not surprising this is so highly... More

Puaa is a cafe in the Old City of Jaffa (in the shuk), in a typical local style home converted to a restaurant and small bar. We ate there on Shabbat (Saturday) afternoon in late December and it was packed. There is a pleasant outside (glass enclosed) patio as well as the interior rooms and an upstairs chamber - we...

We visited there today while we walked in the market. There was a waiting list but it gone through really fast, so don't be hesitate because of that, the entrance is definitely worth it. The service was really good - the waiter made sure that everything is OK, turned on the heater and was very kind. I believe that the... More

Service is quick. Food is good, nothing exceptional, but atmosphere is great. The hot sangria was my first ever. The tahina is awesome!

The location is perfect for a sunny & fresh day when you only need to sit outside and enjoy the charm of the neighborhood. Even if the service was a little bit "distracted" (I want to think that it was because the place was crowded), I would love to go back and enjoy their food... The know what they do... More

I had considered going to this place on two different occasions and finally I decided to go for it yesterday evening. I was dining solo and was seated at the bar. Once comfortable I was given dome warm sangria. The bartender told me his favorite menu options and I settled on the lentil salad and a chocolate chip cookie. I... More

We have found this place by just walking and looking for a place to seat. This restaurant has nice ambience , not too complicated. The food seems to be simple yet it was well prepared and tasted good. Their eggplant with yoghurt had nice taste. The soup was also good. All in all reasonable prices, nice ambience and good food....

Very popular place, you have to wait for a table even half an hour. Service very friendly and professional. The food delicious and the menu varied, decor of the restaurant refers to Jaffa, he does not want to leave
