These guys want your money and want you to leave ASAP. The order we did was kind of under threat, the waiter was in a huddle and got mad we ordered less than he anticipated. Extremely uncomfortable. Not recommended.

The starters that they serve can maje your meal complete. But you should not leave without trying at least the fish. Service is amazing!

Hot recommendation, skip it! This huge restaurant can accommodate more than a thousand people at the same time, and reminds me a crowded dining room of a poor hotel. Tables are too close to each other, mess and noise gives the sense of business whose...whole purpose is to roll a lot of money rather then giving a quality experience. The food is expensive and dry. All the fish is cooked over fire in order to save time, without sauce and without flavor. Dry and inedible. I have nothing good to say about this poor restaurant.More

literally my favorite seafood place in the world!! Just know that if you go, you will eat a lot, because of all the free add-ons to your meal. Fine dining at cheap prices. Authentic, high-quality Palestinian cuisine, right by the Mediterranean! what more do you...want?More

Service was horrible, seafood looked exhausted or over cooked or defrosted or all of the above. Nope, not going there again.

Good food and a great experience for visitors to see the impresive amount and variety of salads at first course. The sea food dishes are fresh and good. What I didn't like was, once they have a long line of waiting guests, they literally throw...you out.. I had an experience where we were still waiting for the check to be paid, and they were setting the table, as we are still sitting, for the next guests..More

Yes, both are open. The one not on the boardwalk is the original one, it's much larger and contains a lot more people; and the sea view is great. I'd recommend going there.

On Sunday they close at midnight. Just keep in mind that it is a simple restaurant with simple food. Nothing fancy. Though tasty food and good value for money.
