A romantic night spent over 4 hours in a delightful Middle Eastern setting in the old city of Jaffa. The food was exquisite. The best chef of the country ( Nir Zuk) cooked, served us, attended to his clients with grace, charm and extreme professionalism. The restaurant is small, yet offers a feeling of space with huge ceilings and stone... More

We went to eat there last night. The area where the restaurant is located is lovely - Real Jaffa ambiance. The restaurant itself looks nice. The PLUS point: Pleasant waitress The MINUS: Food very amateurly presented, Food too salty / spicy. Some in the party had undercooked food.The inside of the place needs updating. The food is definitely not gourmet.... More

Breakfast was very disappointing. Very plain, nothing special and not very tasty. The bread is not good. The decore is lame, supossed to be vintage, but actually the place looks neglected.

When we randomly sat down at this place and started to look at the menu I was about to change my mind and pick somewhere else due to the prices. However I noticed there was a 'taster menu' of 7 small courses at 250 Shekels - I enquired if my wife and I could share one between us as neither... More

The place looks fabulous, but the food is disappointing (as it is often the case). Risotto was tasteless, they forgot to put salt. Other dishes in the norm, but pretty uninteresting overall.

Visited the place on May 2014. The disappointment begun with a simple apple juice, which wasn't apple juice at all, more like a tap water with a touch of an apple syrup. The 8 course tasting menu is definitely not what you expect at this level of restaurant. Three leaves of salad and two slices of radish drowning in vinegar?... More

The place is owned by one of the most renowned chefs in the country. We came with great expectations, and the disappointment was also great. It was a full course dinner - and all the dishes failed !!! they were either too salty or tasteless. The food was not in the gourmet level we expect from such a restaurant. I... More

The restaurant was extremely noisy, the sevice was awful, and the food - average and ordinary. This restaurant is trying to locate itself as one of the top resrtuarnt in Israel, and is expensive. There are much better options in more reasonable price.

This restaurant is terrible by all rating criteria. 1. Food: poor quality of raw materials, basic dishes, very small portions. 2. Wine list: ok, but not what you would expect from a good high class French restaurant 3. Ambience: we reserved a table and we were told we would have been seated comfortably in the restaurant, but we were seated... More
