“Very ordinary”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Maybe average is too good a grade. Considering how well one can eat in Jaffa this (Arab) restaurant was a disappointment. The french fries were soggy with oil (usually a bad sign) and the grilled fish dishes unremarkable. Service was adequate but I expected better food

“Better than food you can get in the most "madani" elite Arab home”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The seafood: beyond fresh. The hospitality: beyond reproach. The ba'lawa (baklava) was light and delicious. You have to make choices to avoid being too full, so pass on the Tel Avivi cabbage salads and stick with the mezze that Arab.cuisine is famous for. And savor the lemonade. It's such a perfect blend between sour and sweet that you won't need to ask for mint.

“Fantastic food ( I should know I've eaten enough”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

There was nothing to dislike about this restruant it was great. As soon as we sat down at our table they brought us a wide variety of salad dishes, including the obligatory humous, and pitta bread. The menus were available in English and very clear. The food was plentiful and delicious. Just amazing.
The staff were frienly and helpful and though not everyone's English was good it was not difficult to understandand be understood. Go and eat it's great

“Perfect solution for a big family lunch. Fresh, tasty and pleasant.”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

So the location is great and it's really easy to get there.
The place is comfortable to seat in but make sure you make reservation (specially during weekends).
Salads were REALLY fresh and good.
Main dishes are good and tasty.
The food is earthy and not novel cuisine.
Service is quick and friendly.
Bottom line a nice place for a family lunch/dinner etc...
