Have a simple late lunch at Akko, Saint Jean d'Acre. Simple and tasty mezze, garlic tomatoes, fresh parley taboule, hummus, eggplant, sesame cream, tuna salad. All of this with pita bread. The advice, even if you have to be a little patient, is to chose a table along the sea side. In early spring... read more

Abu Christo is for many locals an old symbol of the old town of Acre. The food is very traditional- oriental salads, arab cuisine and mainly fish and seafood. My seafood was quite good, the seafront view is always gorgeous, overall a nice way to spend a afternoon.

I've known the Abu Cristo Restaurant for many years and every time we visited Old Acre we would eat there - but no more! You know, the problem with well-established restaurants like Abu Cristo is that they rely too much on their old reputation. They don't take care to retain their standards. So loyal customers like me get progressively more... More

This restaurant is just known by the locals as one of the best restaurants available in Old Acre. The food they make is based on local traditional food recipes which tastes great! And if that is not enough for you, it settles just near the sea and port. This way you can enjoy the view on Haifa, the boats and... More

Abu Cristo Restaurant is very well known to us for thirty years or so. It always has been the same: a lovely site on the sea-front with mediocre fish servings and very nice service.

We arrived late in the evening and got a table directly on the waterfront. The food was tasty and ample but what really impressed us was the quality of the service as our waiter really took good care of us - even after what had clearly been a long, busy day. Good choice from the international menu.

Depends on how crowded and on season how good it is, and historical tourists trap, nice sea view near the harbor. Near by you can find better less famous restaurants

I have been to this restaurant on each of my trips to Akko over the last few years. It's a great view, good service, and tasty food. Not cheap, but a worthwhile respite after touring the old city.
