Great place to go if you cant deal with the mayhem at the tourist trap a few doors away.
The fish was fresh and the staff attentive.
Plenty of space between tables!

We were wandering around Jaffa and the Old Port and chose The Container based on TA.com and Fodors - we ate lunch at about 2pm. Great location in the Old Jaffa Port overlooking the fishing boats - what is not to like? The food is not to like!! For a restaurant on the harbor the Fish and Chips were very disappointing - not too fresh and looked like had been around for a while. Service OK if not a bit curt. Beer OK. Loud music - maybe too much for lunch time when you want to enjoy the harbor. The famous bread just OK - nothing special. We spent NIS268 for two Fish/Chips, bread and Two 0.5 litre beers - we later found out that they had BOGO on beer on Sunday but that was not reflected in our check.
Overall - we will not return and could not recommend. Overrated and overpriced.

It was super hot and we had just walked from Tel Aviv to visit Old Jaffa and we were fighting jet lag and hungry and thirsty. Walked by Old Man and it was a very chaotic. Kept walking and found this place which was super chill. We had beers in hand in minutes and had a really good meal. Fresh fish prepared very simply for me. Others at the table had some spicy shrimp dish that looked tasty. Interior is very eclectic in decor and interesting. Good views of the sunset too. Service was nothing fancy but got the job done.
