Melt in the mouth falafels and a lovely terrace looking out over the sea. Make sure you're hungry as it's not snack size portions!

Only a great view The tables on the terrace are too close together and only for eating costumers. Falafel and Humus were o.k. The french fries which came together with the falafel were fluffy and greasy the worst i ever had. The place looks old and used and needs some refurbishment. Mediocre service, mediocre to poor food, high prizes.

Went for a lunch with family while walking in old town. In stead of hello from waitress we got immediately informed that window places are for lunch customers only. It kindda made the first impression. Worth to mention that we were the only lunch eating customers and most of the tables were free. The food was ok. We ordered 4... More

We visited for the first tome a year ago, and we got enchanted for the second time. A delicious soft steak. The sea food also delicious and very large portions. The view is one of the best in Yaffo and adds to the nice, quiet place.

I was not very hungry but I wanted to eat and drink something while I enjoyed the view of Tel Aviv and the calm sea. I nibled on a roasted eggplant and a salad with cheese. The cold beer relaxed my nerves

Walking through Jaffa, we chose this restaurant for its spectacular view. On the terrace, the view of Tel Aviv is amazing. We ate well, a mezze, the humus, tehina, tabouleh, falafel... all so nice. Although the fries with the falafel were not necesary. Very nice waitress. We sat on the terrace, which is small, with the great view. But the... More

This is a unique location, unique atmosphere and the best view in Jaffa. Sitting in Aladin's balcony, I almost felt as if I were on a boat... And the minaret of the mosque below is so close... I don't really know how their food is because I only had a soft drink but the waiters were pleasant and helpful. This... More

The view is great - really lovely but you could sit next to the restaurant for it! The menu is quite limited - and it's very expensive I had a shrimp based dish which consisted of 8 shrimps swimming in a cream sauce and it was really bad When we went to pay and leave a tip we were told... More

No locals eating here during our visit. We traveled extensively in the area and the food was some of the worst we've had, especially in this price range. The great view and warm service redeem some of our negative feelings about the place. But seek a view with food elsewhere...
