If you want to have a excellent fish than Jacko is your choice. The fish, the seafood is fresh and delicious. You can have a great seafood pasta with mussels, shrimp and calamari in a rich sauce. You will enjoy the service and the prices are fair.

We loved our lunch at Jacko's! Situated right outside the "Turkish Market" street market in lower Haifa, don't let the modest decor fool you. The sea food is delicious and the prices extremely reasonable. We ate a selection of tasty mezze dishes (that we were not even charged for), fresh pitot, and generous main courses of seafood paella, Jacko's shrimp,... More

The primary dishes were good, and reasonable in size; The waitresses were mostly OK, but one of them was really novice, and practically did not help at all. One major issue is the menu: we could not get any bread of whole-wheat flour, only regular pitta bread. When it came to desert – the option was quite limited; we have... More

Jacko is a very good option for fresh fish and seafood and delicious mezze style salads. I savoured an excellent seafood pasta with lots of plump mussels, shrimp and calamari in a rich sauce. It was more than I could eat. My companions all enjoyed their selections--shrimp, whole grilled fish, and fish & chips. We shared a yummy malabi (milk... More

Jacko is a fish restaurant which has existed in Haifa for many years. There are several branches, but the original one is located in downtown Haifa. The meals here are standard “Haifa style” – a big selection of salads as a first course and then the main course of fish of seafood or whatever you have ordered. It used to... More

After spending an hour in traffic, and walking in the intense heat from the parking spot, we came into an empty, very plain looking restaurant. I didn't find it quaint or rustic, as others remarked here, although Israel is full of rustic & darling places. The decor and walls were depressing, and the service ok but tired and not all... More

This is my favorite fish restaurant. Its not fancy, not too pricey and the dishes are large. You order the main course (fish) and get a lot of salads for free with wonderful fresh white bread. The salads are so good you may be stuffed by the time the mail course arrives. I had the salmon and the catfish dishes... More

Jacko's is a Haifa classic, and a MUST TRY place for dinner. It's located in a "sketchy" (i.e. desolate, run-down) part of downtown Haifa such that you'll want to use taxi cab service to & fro. It's worth it. Jacko's takes reservations, & your hotel can help you with this. The interior is cute, rustic & simple. The service very... More
