Lots of good decent food, endless replenishing, and a very friendly staff catering to all the different clients from all over the world. If you know a few words of Arabic share them with the staff, they are very engaging.

You can go there and enjoy all the delicious sides. Most of my friends that I went with were already full before the fish arrived. They have a nice wine list from the region as well.

Ernest Hemingway's 1952 novel The Old Man and the Sea depicts the world of a poor Cuban fisherman who fights the wild sea. These elements of sea, fish and noble nature have also inspired the establishment of the well-known restaurant on Jaffa's Kedem Street - The Old Man and the Sea.
