Fodor's Review

Hebrew for "Sea Dolphin," this lively eatery serves some of the city's best seafood. The decor is pleasant enough—pale yellow stucco walls, recessed wine racks, and arched windows—but it's not a place for intimacy. Food is what draws the mixed clientele, including plenty of families. Start with appetizers like the excellent wild roasted eggplant with tahini and pine nuts, then move on to the shrimp in a mushroom-cream sauce or the drum fish in a tasty broth. You can also experiment with the generous seafood platter for two that includes crab, scallops, and calamari.

You Can't Go Wrong Here

From Appetizers to Desserts, everything was exceptional. It is a large, noisy place but we had very friendly service.
