The Fisherman’s Kosher Restaurant is a fine fish and dairy restaurant in the port of Yafo (Jaffa). It is
unique as the only kosher restaurant in the port among many non-kosher places. That is our good fortune, as the port is a breezy place to explore and enjoy, especially on a cool evening.

The Fisherman’s Kosher Restaurant offers a selection of salt-water and fresh-water fish that the kitchen will prepare in any of several ways: whole, filleted, or grilled open-faced, pan fried, or baked. The selection of fish is good and includes fresh salmon, levrak (Sea Bass), and barbunya (Red Mullet). Other options are fish and chips, and, for non-fish eaters, penne in a cream-tomato sauce. Side orders of fries (chips) or baked potato are offered with the fish.
