“Relaxed Dining on the Waterfront”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

If you just want to relax over a platter of simply fried very fresh small fish and a tall glass of cold beer, Scoobar in the Ashkelon marina is just the place. Do not expect gourmet food there but you will enjoy the simple and good things in life right on the marina's waterfront. A good place for a leisurely meal. Friendly and prompt service.

“Slow service and poor food”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

This place is full of cats so be prepared. The food is not very good and the service is very slow. The beer is expensive and tastes like soapy water.

“Beautiful location with laid-back atmosphere.”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Scoobar (Scubar?) is in an excellent location on the Ashkelon Marina, and in fact it seems to be sitting on the water itself. The outdoor seating area has great views of the marina and of the Mediterranean beyond, and inside the atmosphere is relaxed, intimate and comfortable. The food was good (I was pleased to see a fair number of vegetarian dishes on the menu), and although the staff didn't appear to be especially attentive or friendly, the service was acceptable overall. It seems to be a family-friendly bar/restaurant, as there were quite a few families with young kids dining there when I visited - good to know if you're travelling with children. I'd recommend this to anyone who appreciates a good view and a laid-back vibe, and also to any cat-lovers as you will meet lots of new friends outside!

“...fresh from the Med”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Scoobar has been holding its own on the Ashkelon Marina ever since it was commissioned a goodly number of years ago, and has maintained its status as the premier fish resto in the port city; try their "from Paris with love" sea bass special and taste for yourself...
