Fodor's Review

If ever there was a beloved eating place in Haifa, Jacko's is it. Give the name to your taxi driver, he'll nod approvingly, gun the motor, and drop you at a nondescript building with a Hebrew sign. Since 1976, this family-run restaurant founded by a Turkish fisherman has been serving delicious seafood in a rowdy, informal setting with shared tables. The specialties here are fish and seafood sautéed in butter, white wine, and garlic. There are piles of soft-shell crab,

mussels, and calamari served with a variety of sauces, large shrimp grilled in their shells, and Mediterranean lobster (in summer). Ask for the catch of the day. For dessert try the Turkish cookies.
