Just off the main entrance to Jaffa, this slightly ramshackle spot treats you to a view of the city's coastline. Mediterranean-style grilled fish is the specialty, but the menu also includes favorites like fried sardines stuffed with caviar. Owner Margaret Tayar is a gregarious presence, serving up steaming plates from her tiny kitchen off a small wooden bar topped with jars of pickled red peppers and kumquats. The snug interior is fine for cold winter days, but when the weather is fine, opt for a spot on the garden patio overlooking the sea.
