“No interest in customers”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

They take whoever comes first and do not honour reservations. They are rude. The food is passable but no more.

there is no genuine concern for customers, just maximise the cash take.

“Seafood Delight”
Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

Fisherman is a bustling restaurant on an old harbor area in Tel Aviv. It is a delightful setting for an indoor or outdoor meal. The food is quite good. Here are a few points....

1. The place is best for whole fried or grilled fish. The shellfish dishes are good, but can have a bit too much salt or butter. The whole fish (such as sea bass, sea bream, etc.) is perfectly prepared and evidently a favorite.

2. Fisherman has a nice selection of wines from Israel. Ask your server to help you make a selection.

3. Meal purchases come with a monstrous spread of vegetable based appetizers. They brought approximately 8 bowls of everything from salad to hummus before the meal. Each of these items were fresh and unique to Israel and the Middle East.

4. On a nice evening, outside seating is great. However, there is a lot of foot traffic right by the tables, as well as cigarette smoking, both at other tables and from those inside the restaurant who come out to smoke.

5. This is a very good restaurant in a fun location. The prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food.

“Great place for dinner”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

I took my mom out for her birthday to this place. We enjoyed the easy going atmosphere, good friendly service and delicious food at reasonable prices. Our table was right by the water so we could enjoy a lovely view of the port

“Great Seafood Platter,In the Harbour!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

If in Israel,Tel Aviv this restaurant is a great option.
5 of us shared a large seafood platter and salads.
The average cost per head was under $ 40 without wine.

The setting is great.In a working harbour next to the water.
No it does not smell!
It is basic in that you sit outside at the waters edge and the emphasis is the food.
At 10.00pm they have live music and the whole place has an amazing vibe.
A nice change from an indoor experience.
