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.

Ernest Hemingway's 1952 novel The Old Man and the Sea depicts the world of a poor Cuban fisherman who fights the wild sea. These elements of sea, fish and noble nature have also inspired the establishment of the well-known restaurant on Jaffa's Kedem Street - The Old Man and the Sea.
