“KMB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This was the best meal we had in Israel. I am a USA resident and spent 10 days in Israel with friends. Ate at many restaurants throughout the country. This was a multicourse meal; appetizers, main course, desert and was all excellent. The service was excellent, the wait staff was friendly, the restaurant was clean and was very picturesque. It is located on the Mediterrean Sea which complemented the meal.

“Arab cuisine with some seafood additions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Abrage is located just above the zodiac fountain (and hence its name in Arabic) at the heart of old Jaffa. The interior is far from fancy but trys to keep a simple Arab dining setting. You should go to Abrage if and only you're looking for authentic Arab style cuisine - well made and with one of the richest varieties to be found in such places. The wine selection is mainly high quality Israeli (red wines) with some Italian Chianti. The wines are among the best - but over priced.
The seafood is NOT Arab style - but makes a nice fit to the rest of the dishes.
Bottom line - certainly go there if you like Arab and free style cuisine (if you like Tapas bars - you'd like Abrage).

“Bad restaurant, how can it be number one in Yaffo ?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

Hello,

We came by taxi for this restaurant.

We were 3 persons for diner. We ordered a fish, the kebab and the entrecote.

The fish arrived first. Then we waited nearly 1 hour for the next dishes.

The food was nearly cold when it arrived. We ordered a side dish which arrived 30 minutes after we finished our main dishes.

My conclusion, the service is really bad and in addition the food has nothing special.

Dear SymbiosB,

I am very sorry to hear that your experience at Abrage was a disappointing one. It is clear that you chose our restaurant and took a taxi to get here because you anticipated a much better experience than you received. Not only am I sorry, but so is the staff and we came up with a message for you that we hope conveys how apologetic we truly are: http://imgur.com/TUXB0Zp

I do hope that one day we will have another chance to change your opinion.
