Dr. Shakshuka is a lovely, ethnic Tunisian restaurant. The ceiling is hung with countless copper utensils, which add plenty of charm. Tables are long, I remember no private, small ones. The food is interesting, if on the greasy side. Conferences have taken their guests there. Tunisian food is yummy and labor intensive, just the kind you want to eat out... More

Originally a small "hole in the wall" Dr. Shakshuka is a famous eatery in Jaffa that has vastly expanded to a larger storefront. The food is tasty and fillling, though I have definitely eaten better Shashuka - including in my own kitchen. The staff is attentive and effecient. The outdoor seating is great in good weather. Otherwise, I would reccommend... More

Visited twice in a few days. Once with our daughter and son in law and the second time with our brother, sister in law and nephew and girlfriend. Lovely location, good value and tasty food. Fun murals (although man with tube coming out of head is slightly surreal) and middle eastern music. Recommended.

The Shakshuka was just plain nasty - oily, no flavour, chips undercooked, and the service hostile. We got out as soon as we could. We are now dealing with the stomach upsets.

This is a great restaurant, especially if you're a fan like I am of the dish shakshuka. It's eggs poached inside a spicy tomato mixture.

As nice as the waiting staff was, I can't say anything else but that this was a very disappointing restaurant. Mediocre food and pricy. The meat had a lot of indigestible chunks in it and the fries it came with were undercooked and still hard on the inside. The shakshuka was pretty plain but OK tasting. We were on our... More

Was there for breakfast. Big disappointment! The shakshuka was served in a pan. The pan was hot on the outside, but cold in the inside. It seems that the shakshuka was prepared in advance, and was rehited. GROSS! the service was fast, but unfriendly. The price of the shakshuka was over priced.

We staid at Dr. Shakshuka for our lunch. The location of the terrasse between two buildings is nice and partly protected from the sun, for those who prefer. We ordered a shawarma with french fries/rice/vegetable salad and a vegetarian couscous. The shawarma came raw in the middle and had to be returned to the grill for some more minutes. Rice... More

Firstly it is worth going to Dr Shatshuka's for the experience; It's bustling, fun and a tiny bit crazy. Other reviews are correct; the food is good but not brilliant (although the pumpkin relish was wonderful) my lamb kebabs we nice but the mixed shawarma was a little dry. Yes there are lots of pigeons around but it's essentially outside... More
