“Yoezer Wine Bar”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

Yoezer, in Jaffa, is tucked away but easy to find, right across from the famous clock tower. In spite of the name, it is a restaurant (and wine bar of course) in every sense of the word.
The place looks old and decrepit, because it is. Nothing false and showy here. It is an old building, historic even, and that is part of the charm. For a restaurant in Israel to last this long, means it must be doing something right
The food is nothing less than outstanding. Shaul Evron, the owner (usually sitting at the bar over a glass - or two - of wine) knows all about food, restaurants, wines, cooking and service, and it shows.
The waitstaff are knowlegable and accommodating. Don't expect them to ask you "is everything ok?" every two minutes, but do expect them to pay discreet attention to your needs.
Somewhat pricey, but excellent value for money. A treat, and an unusual reataurant.

“special place with great food...”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

special place with great food... French modern food.
In a dark, sensual, rustic surrounding in old Jaffa, this place is for people who love to eat.
It's not chip, but you'll love every bite.

“So disappointing!”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

Saved this restaurant for my husband's 30th birthday and it was a terrible choice. Waitress ignored us completely even though there were only three other tables at the dinner peak on Friday night. Rather than being romantic the place was dark and dingy and seemed to be trying to hide the fact that no one had dusted in months.
The food was mediocre ad best and tried to compensate for its mediocrity by being drenched in butter and cheap truffles. What could be bad about butter and truffles you ask? Pour it over over cooked paperdelle and see how much it helps.
Also really expensive and zero value for money.
