Beautiful restaurant for a date! We sat at the (small) bar and felt like we were being hosted by friends! The place looks like a typical house in Greece with that family coziness! The wine list was great- lots of Israeli wine to choose from, we ordered a bottle of red Vitkin- pretty decent for the price. The salad and the beet "ravioli" were my favorite starters. Wine, ouzo shots (compliments of the bartender!), mains and for desert we had the typical jaffa knafeh- so good!!!!! We had such an amazing night, made friends with the bartender and a German couple sitting near us- we stayed until closing and enjoyed a walk around the beautiful square before heading home!

Kalamata is a truly wonderful Greek restaurant in a lovely setting in Old Jaffa. We happened upon it one evening when all the inside seats were taken, and so we ate al fresco on Kedumim Square, which was itself a lovely romantic setting. We liked our dinner so much, however, that we made a reservation to eat there a second night and get an inside table. Our hope -- which was to get one of the tables overlooking the Mediterranean and with a great view of Tel Aviv -- was realized. As for the food -- the rustric bread was among the best breads I have ever eaten and the seafood entrees we chose were perfectly prepared. We are also fans of the Jaffa G & T cocktail. If you follow your dinner with a walk along the seaside promenade, it's a perfect evening.

We went there for my wife's 60th birthday. It was fabulous. The preparation of the food is marvelous. The menu is quite diverse. It was like magical visit to Greece. I would return there in a heartbeat.

We keep coming here occasionally with friends or family, we sometimes choose to be seated up stairs and enjoy amazing sunsets or enjoy the people going bye at the kdumim square in old Jaffa. Highly recommended tapas style, based on high quality ingredients tastefully served with a big smile. If you are comfortable sharing,we recommend that you do so
