“Right in the middle of Jaffa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Happy atmosphere. Right in the middle of the walk-way.
The spaghetti neapolitan was great and the baked potato with tuna salad was a very generous portion.

“Simple, fresh, tasty food in a spotlessly clean, laid back cafe.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Originally just stopped in for a cold beer after pounding the streets for hours, but ended up staying and eating as the place had a great laid back vibe to it.
The menu was very simple fare, but the ingredients were obviously very fresh and tasted wonderful.
Service was spot on and provided by a lovely waitress with a beautiful smile who moved between the tables with languid grace.

“Great place for a Beer and great atmosphere in Jaffas' Surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Me and my partner just had a lovely evening at Gibberish, enjoyed a Chilled Beer with good selection of tasty and fresh food alongside, Will surely come back for more.
This is a great place to sit back and enjoy the superb atmosphere of old Jaffa and the Flea Market Square right across.

“A true Yaffo experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

I live at the gibberish - fine it's the cafe/bar next door, but I'm surrounded by those when you live in the middle of Jaffa. The Gibberish is just home. It's great daytime cafe to work in and have lunch, or a chill spot to have dinner and a glass of wine on a week or weekend night to unwind. As a tourist, it's great to understand Jaffa and get good tips on things to do in the area. Want a true Israeli experience? It's here at the Gibberish. And order the lentil salad - it's amazing and so fresh!
