I tend to visit the Jafa flea market on a weekly basis. Everytime i go there i sit in a different place for a light meal. Sifo is one of my favourites. It's not fancy or anything, like most places in this area, but it's nice and cool to sit on the alley, having a bear or a glass of... More

Not that my visit here was negative but this place for me is more of a great place to have a beer even if a few steps down the same street you can find a similar place with more vibe ( some music playing even live sometimes ) . Food is just average even if they try and be inventive... More

Friendly waitstaff, okay dishes, nothing too impressive. Good selection, but a bit pricy given that they are a casual restaurant. Their wild rice and fish (sea bass or sea bream; both are solid) was the best dish we tried, and their ceviche wasn't bad; the seafood kebab tasted more like spice than seafood, their shrimp pizza skimped heavily on the...

We came on a busy night... The Tartar was very good and fresh and I would eat it again. The pizza Margherita was not the traditional Margherita but also good...the crust thin and crispy. The risotto with shrip was way too spicy and salty...we couldn't eat more than a few bites.. I had tge fish kebob which tasted like beef... More

Made a reservation for 8 pm. Arrived to an empty restaurant. The waitress gave us menus and walked away. We sat around and noticed that other restaurants nearby were really crowded and still no waitress or other customers. We learned long ago that an empty restaurant and indifferent service usually mean disappointment. We left with still no waitress around and... More

we were there in one of the busiest nights on Tel Aviv, but the food - which was really good - came pretty quickly, and the staff was very friendly. The prices however, were pretty high, but i would say that this is the level of prices in that area.

In the middle of the Jaffa flee market, you'll find this great place. Between other bars and restaurants, with street music and places to sit on the street, you'll enjoy Jaffa. The cocktails are superb, especially the Gin Ger (gin, ginger, lemons and tonic). The sea food dishes are good as well. Don't miss out

We ordered happy hour drinks - 1+1 which started well. Followed with sea bass, seafood couscous and a pizza. All 3 of us were very happy with our meals and would definitely recommended this place. Great value.

We were surprised: looks small and with small kitchen but the food was up to the chefs taste, gnocchi, fried potatoes were perfect! Small fried fishes were fresh and not overdone and banana brûlée simple delicious . Worth to visit!

Located in the heart of the flee market area in Old Jaffa on a side street with some cool restaurants. Though one appetizer was a downfall no no (stuffed vine leaves from a can instead of making their own or buying a good quality kind), the rest was very good: fish ceviche, sea food on eggplant and good cocktails. Defiantly... More
