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.

This place! Urgh. My friend and I arrived after 10pm to dine. We were both looking forward to eating, and we were seated and presented with the typical pre meal salads which seems traditional in Tel Aviv. The salads were not too bad, there were a few nice ones, but they did go overboard with the mayonnaise on a number... More

My husband, my son and I had lunch here. We ordered three main dishes - calamari and two grilled fish, but it was too much food for us because of the salads that came with the meals. We enjoyed our lunch, and we really liked some of the side dishes (cauliflower and beets). The food was good but not excellent... More

Went back after several years. What a disappointment. The variety of salads which are given as starters was not as good as it used to be and the quality and taste much worse. The fish was not very tasty either.

This restaurant came highly recommend as the place to go for seafood. Unfortunately, this is just not my cup of tea. The place is very basic and lacks fun atmosphere and a vibe, it's just blah. The food is very simple. There are all yoy Dan eat salads that are flowing and the seafood is fresh, but the tastes are... More

After a long flight from the U.S. we were tired and hungry. We had tried to get in to some more inviting restaurants on a Monday night but found them to be full. Our party of 7 stumbled upon this one. To be frank, it was plain with little ambiance, but it had an available table. Immediately after we sat,... More
