Good, simply prepared fresh fish and seafood. Service was too fast - our main course arrived before starters were finished. Pleasant waterside seating. Complimentary (very sweet) baklava and coffee.

When we arrived on a Friday evening, we were warmly greeted by the waiter and given a seat outside next to the sea. The restaurant is under a canopy, so sitting outside is not an issue. However, the party boats traveling in the Mediterranean were quite noisy, but we found them to be rather entertaining. The service was super. The... More

We went with old friends who live in Haifa but have never been to this restaurant. We had a table next to the window with a great view of Haifa Bay. My only quibble is that the waiter allowed us to order too much food. However, everything we ordered was great. We specifically asked that the salads be prepared without... More

Our group stopped here for lunch after a tour of Old Acre (Akko). We had lunch here - great food + great service. Highly recommend it.

The location seems nice at first, but if you explore Akko some more you will find much nicer locations by the sea. They serve everything - not just fish. Prices are average plus. We had the sea bass and the cusk, with a hummus starter. The bass was quite OK, a bit tasteless though. The cusk was nice. We had... More

This is the kind of place I like because the food is good and the presentation is simple; nothing was a big production. It was a really pleasant experience sitting at the edge of the water. Our waiter was friendly. The beer was cold. Really nice.

Enjoyed the service, the food and the view! Awesome place for a seafood meal, the weightier allowed me to actually pick out exact fish that I wanted to eat. Enjoyed my visit to this restaurant.

The view over the Mediteranean is spectacular. Unfortunately that is about it. The food is of poor quality and the service is unprofessional and a bit surly. It is as if they decided we have a great view so that should be enough. My advice skip it. John N.

The food was alright, but our server was very unfriendly. He was very impatient with us, even though we were 1 of only a handful of tables in the restaurant. We ended up staying and talking for a long time and our server eventually brought us some coffee and dessert on the house, which almost made up for his earlier... More

A quaint yet large restaurant serving a variety of sea food including shrimp and other shell type fish. This restaurant is located right in the old city about 150 feet south of the lighthouse.
