Great fish restaurant in the port of Tel Aviv. Simple dishes yet of great quality. Its a busy hectic restaurant but the service is good and overall zero complaints.

Before our meal came, we were served 10 small plates of yummy Mediterranean dishes. Then came the most perfectly cooked shrimp . And then a whole fish, filleted so beautifully it was divine. A great recommendation.

Very typical fish restaurant. Now the standard, you get stuffed with "salads" and pita, so when your fish comes, you are too full to eat a normal sized portion of food, which is good, because the portions of fish tend to be small. We had...More

We had lots of tasty appetizers - at least 10 - served in small portions so we could have a taste of each. Then we had a delicious whitish fish and some kebabs. The service was very good, the atmosphere comfortable but a little loud...More
