Jacko is a fish restaurant which has existed in Haifa for many years. There are several branches, but the original one is located in downtown Haifa. The meals here are standard “Haifa style” – a big selection of salads as a first course and then the main course of fish of seafood or whatever you have ordered. It used to... More

After spending an hour in traffic, and walking in the intense heat from the parking spot, we came into an empty, very plain looking restaurant. I didn't find it quaint or rustic, as others remarked here, although Israel is full of rustic & darling places. The decor and walls were depressing, and the service ok but tired and not all... More

This is my favorite fish restaurant. Its not fancy, not too pricey and the dishes are large. You order the main course (fish) and get a lot of salads for free with wonderful fresh white bread. The salads are so good you may be stuffed by the time the mail course arrives. I had the salmon and the catfish dishes... More

Jacko's is a Haifa classic, and a MUST TRY place for dinner. It's located in a "sketchy" (i.e. desolate, run-down) part of downtown Haifa such that you'll want to use taxi cab service to & fro. It's worth it. Jacko's takes reservations, & your hotel can help you with this. The interior is cute, rustic & simple. The service very... More

Jacko's is an old institution in Haifa. It used to be a rarity - good, unpretentious, inexpensive food, mainly fish. With time they opened an affiliate on the carmel which wasn't very successful and closed. After many years we returned for lunch to the newly refurbished Jacko's down in the lower city. Everything seemed the same except for the price... More

Jacko is a popular seafood restaurant. Like many other Israeli restaurants of this type they offer many salads as starters and a variety of (generally well prepared) types of sea food. Our part had several dishes all of which were good (though nothing was extraordinary).

Jacko's has been around for a long time ..the neighborhood was a working class area that is now becoming gentrified and Jacko's has surviied it all..they serve fish that's fresh and nicely prepared in an unassuming storefront ... the salads are nothing to write home about, but that's not the reason to visit Jacko's ... service is friendly and ok...

This is a good place offering mainly fish and seafood. The salads that are served as an appetizer are fresh and tasty. The fish are very good. The service is not professional, but friendly and helpful. The prices are very reasonable. Bottom line: Good value for money.
