You can find as good foor elsewhere arround, but the location and the views are excellent. Right at the south corner of Jaffa slot park, and next to a great beach. Babai 9the owner) is certainly a character. Try to make him tell stories... Come...More

Description
about a kilometer south of The Old Man & The Sea in Jaffa. I was trying to find The Old Man & The Sea, but I walked along the beach and missed it, what I did find was Babia & The Sea and it was wonderful. I saw The Old Man & The Sea on my walk back and it doesn't compare to Babia & the Sea. Better ambiance, less crowded and no tour bus' Babia has a far better view and I'm glad I found it. Seafood was great, salads were never ending and delicious
