Despite their famous name, this restaurant is just a waste of time and money. The shakshuka looked like leftover slop, the place was dirty, the schnitzel was like plastic, the salad looked and tasted as though it was the last thing in the world the cook wanted to prepare. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.

Let's face it... Shakshuka is a basic. A great lunch dish served in different guises with different names all round the Mediterranean..... But never have I tasted one so bland!!! How can tomatoes taste of nothing? The salad was almost thrown onto the table in front of me. The warning bells should have rung when I saw the "tout" out... More

We were looking for local cuisine. The restaurant has a few entries and we set where the groups are hosted. The restaurant team filled the table generously with salads, Shakshuka and meat. If you like oriental food which is a bit spicy, you will enjoy your evening there

Was recommended for years. The shakshuka, sausage, lamb shwarma and salad was wonderful. I can see why everyone raves about the place.

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.
