Food was much better before, service no good. The salads, were not that impressive, the shrimps were not good. Very disappointing.

Nice, open restaurant serving fish. Large selection of all kind of fresh fish. Friendly and attent staff's. We got a lot of good, cold starters, very rapidly. Also a small set of deserts. No frills, recommanded.

This place is a hidden gem. They only do seafood, so be warned. My airline steward recommended this place. It was outstanding. The hostess was incredibly hospitable and kept the appetizers coming. We were a group of 7 and she seated us right away and ordered her staff to cater to us. She pulled the stops in getting us a... More

This place is perfect if you want lots of food and don't know or care about how it's prepared or what it tastes like. The grilled fish is not grilled. It is fried and perhaps placed on the grill for a split second before it is served. The sea bass was tasteless oily cafeteria quality cuisine at best. The all... More

I had the opportunity to eat at this restaurant and the staff were friendly and helpful in choosing food selections for the table. The salads that come out before the meal were fabulous and they just kept coming. The food was wonderful, quite seasoned and flavorful and great portions. I would recommend this place for those passing through who want... More

You sit down and are given a big jug of sparkling water and really good salads. The fish which we both had was excellent- as was the wine and the delicious creme Brule we had for dessert. It's not fancy and there aren't waiters fawning over you, but that's fine. They are also doing friendly so that's a plus. I... More

This is old Tel Aviv- the menu does not change -which is why I like it. I know the fish will be fresh- I can get it grilled the way I like it. The salads are always the same - and the ambience is, as I said 'Old Tel Aviv". I've been coming here for years and never had a... More

The service (which is the very first impression you have on the restaurant) was already poor from the moment we walked in. There was a wait so we said we would have a drink across the road at their small bar first. One of the girls were lovely, another was a horror who not only ignored us but when I... More

Went with a group of bussines colleagues to taste israel food. We eat very nice fried fish and typical salads. I'd come back if I were in the area.
