The food in this place is outstanding! Freshest fish and great diversity of typical middle eastern salads. The enormous extra.... view of an amazing sunset since you are sitting in the port of Yafo next to the ocean. This is definitely a MUST in TA!

You can go there and enjoy all the delicious sides. Most of my friends that I went with were already full before the fish arrived. They have a nice wine list from the region as well.

Description
Ernest Hemingway's 1952 novel The Old Man and the Sea depicts the world of a poor Cuban fisherman who fights the wild sea. These elements of sea, fish and noble nature have also inspired the establishment of the well-known restaurant on Jaffa's Kedem Street - The Old Man and the Sea.
