This restaurant at Jaffa Port really only has a view of the boats, rather than the sea. The meals include a large meze of many salads, a pitcher of lemonade, and dessert and coffee/tea. Many of the salads were delicious. The grilled fish was good....More

My husband and I ate here in May. We weren't sure what to expect but were impressed at the 22 different salads they gave us as soon as we sat down. We enjoyed our meal and at the end we were hoping to bring home...More

They have very fresh fishes to be served on your table! I was here and sitting indoor. I think it would be much better to sit outside. They have a very beautiful view of the Jaffa port. Dozens of white yacht, people walking down the...More

Loved that the second we sat down they were placing all the salads in front of us. The only problem was not having tons of room in my stomach left for the main course. The lemonade and dessert were also excellent. Hope to go back...More

My wife and I went here with another couple. Everything that we ordered was great. The service was great, and the portions were very generous. Highly recommended.

Nice mezze of 22 small dishes included in the main course. Nice sizable grouper fillet and large sea food dish with plenty of shrimps and calimari. Good & quick service, but it could be a bit more with a smile.....😀

Quite an experience watching the waiters run around carrying 12 large plates at a time and then covering your table with 20 or so small (delicious) salad dishes whilst you wait for the main course. A real assault on the sense. Worth the wait if...More

This place is huge and seems to feeds hundreds at once. The line up at the door was long but moved very quickly. Waiters are brusque and rushed but very capable. They bring a table-full of salads right away but be sure you save room...More

You can go there and enjoy all the delicious sides. Most of my friends that I went with were already full before the fish arrived. They have a nice wine list from the region as well.
Do you need to make reservations?

Ernest Hemingway's 1952 novel The Old Man and the Sea depicts the world of a poor Cuban fisherman who fights the wild sea. These elements of sea, fish and noble nature have also inspired the establishment of the well-known restaurant on Jaffa's Kedem Street - The Old Man and the Sea.
