Listen to everybody’s review and AVOID this place! It is a tourist trap with horrible food I have never met such RUDE staff in my life. It’s an embarrassment to the port and no one should ever eat here

Israel is not a cheap place - full plates cost more than in most countries - but Eu 25+ Is more than enough to pay for a plate of battered calamari on a bed of lettuce . OK, they put a few ME side dishes...and a warmed pita bread. Not a chip in sight. This place is at the south side of the Jaffa port building and was promoted - but most people were eating around the front, facing the water. Go round to the front of the wharf, is my suggestion.More

My wife and I went and we're greeted to a dinner in a outside covered alcove. They brought out a live violinist who played beautiful music throughout. The shrimp and shellfish was fantastic.

OK, Israel is not cheap destination. But Eu25+ or USD$28.6 is more than enough for a plate of battered calamari, OK with a few ME side dishes and a heated pita bread. This place on the southern end of the wharf was promoted locally, but...everyone was eating around the front, facing the water. They obviously knew more than us... Go round the front .More

Came here as a guest of friends. The location is not the best at night, you are very close to the sea but not close enough to enjoy the view. The service was patient and efficient yet the salads which came with the main dish...were not very good. I ordered a pretty decent grilled fish (which I requested without the 'mixed spices,' – i mistrust those who dont tell me which spices they mean..). Their creme brûlée was inedible, frozen cold inside and barely warmed on the outside.. The dinner was fine, as it will anyways be with friends but ruined by a drunk man who broke glasses at a table near us..wish the waiter would've intervened rather than made us wonder whether the glass would eventually end up being thrown at us...More

We’ve been there a couple of times and every dish we had was spot on. Located just around the corner from Old Jaffa’s seafront with a view into a kind of derelict street on one side but I’m sure that view will get better in...due time. One more thing: I had a remarkable conversation with one of the waitresses. When I asked her for the bill and told her I wanted to pay with my visacard she asked me if I had some cash for the service. She explained that in Tel Aviv the custom exists to pay like 10 percent tip. As I was there for the first time this was new to me but I did appreciate her honesty.More

Гуляли с внуком в порту Яффо. Присели за стилок в полупоустом ресторане заказать мороженое. Угюмая официантка сообщила, что если не закажем основное блюдо, обслуживать в этом ресторане нас не будут. С таким гадким отношением встречемся впервые. We walked with my grandson in the port of...Jaffa. We sat down at a semi-empty restaurant to order ice cream. The somber waitress said that if we did not order the main course, they would not serve us in this restaurant. With such an ugly attitude we meet for the first time.More

Best fish and chimps in Israel! Fast, clean and really cool local atmosphere. The shrimp and fried fish are the best dishes

Had a meal here. Very little fish on the menu. I had chicken and my husband had a steak he said was very good. Served with fries but nothing else. No wine list. Apparently changing to a meat restaurant. It satisfied my hunger but that...was all. Seats were grubby and napkin holder empty. Plastic sachets of tomato sauce and mayonnaiseMore

Very nicely located just in the fishers port of Jaffa . In summer also sitting outside . Food was good though we had only salads and no fish . Service friendly. 13 USDLRS for variety of salads with unlimited refills.
