Locals hold this fish and seafood restaurant (known in Hebrew as Hamiflat Ha'acharon) in high regard and take their guests from "up north" here as a real treat. The dining room, with dark paneling and nautical motifs like ships' wheels, spills out onto a spacious balcony where diners eat beside the water, looking at Jordan across the way. Presented with a flourish are fish or crab soups, freshly caught charcoal-grilled Red Sea fish, and creamed seafood served in a seashell.
A specialty here is stir-fried sea crabs, prepared with a bit of spice in olive oil and garlic. Weekends tend to be extra busy, so it's smart to reserve several days ahead (and to ask for balcony seating).
