Fodor's Review

Hebrew for "Sea Dolphin," this eatery serves some of the city's best seafood in one of the liveliest parts of Downtown. 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 a meze of refillable dishes; the wild roasted eggplant with tahini and pine nuts is excellent. Move on to the shrimp in a cream and mushroom

sauce or the musar baladi (drum fish) in fish broth and dried tomato sauce. You can also experiment with the generous seafood platter for two.

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.
