Stuffy atmosphere, mediocre service. Against local laws and regulations, they allow smoking in the restaurant. 'Fresh sea fish' were actually defrosted, over-seasoned farm fish. A waste of time and money.

I've been to Raouf & Atina a few times. This is the first review of the last time my wife and I went there: You sit down and within moments you have a waiter at your table laying down salad plates in the shape of a flower. Not only is it a nice presentation, the salads are fresh and very... More

There are more fish restaurants nearby. Raouf & Atina is one of the oldest, and still very good. I like the fresh salads, they have various salads,a bit less then in others, but they are fresh, tasty, and you always have more of them. Fish are good. Service is good, and price is slightly lower then nearby restaurant. (both of... More

Forget the seafood places trying to hard to attract tourists on the Jaffa seaport and go for the real thing in Jaffa's Ajami neighborhood, a five-minute drive to the south. Raouf and Attina, named after the couple which created the restaurant, serves outstanding seafood and traditional salads with an Arab-Israeli Palestinian vibe. No nonsense, only excellent food served in a... More

Raouf &Atina is one of the veteran restaurants in Jaffa ,when we want to have a good sea food meal this is the place. Atina welcomes the customers,and if you are a returning one she spoils you with extra salads. The salads are so fresh that you eat the with so many pitas without feeling how much bread you ate....

Fish are so fresh they are literally still flapping on the plate!. This place looks like a hole in the wall. But its run by an old Arab family for decades and despite the simplicity, the looks are deceiving - the food is absolutely special. The fish is fresh, and they serve a dozen or so mezze starters with the... More

The food was not bed. You're seating on an open verandas. The service is another story. 3 waiters for the whole restaurant. Waiting,signing but they're busy with other table. No doubt. Never again and not recommend.

If you are looking for an authentic culinary experience this surely is the right place to go. Its been here forever and always good, overlooking the Jaffa and the boardwalk. Careful with the first courses they might fill you up, so you will have no room for the major course . We remained royal to the fish and licked our... More
