It appears they are gradually doing this area up. Quite atmospheric. Quite a few interesting shops, and lots of bars and restaurants. Worth a stroll around.

Great views day and night (go for both). Excellent restaurants. Awesome views over Tel Aviv. We went there virtually every day (short walk from anywhere in Tel Aviv).

Nice ambiance and beautiful views. Would recommend sitting outside in one of the restaurants and try some of the amazing sea food there. There are also some art exhibitions there sometimes worth visiting.

Nice little outside bars to sit and watch the sundown. Jaffa town interesting with great coffee bars. Indoor market. Many of the outside bars have the metal stools that "Drew" the salvage hunter would die for!!!!
