Review of Akbar

Akbar
Ranked #271 of 1,647 Restaurants in Tel Aviv
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$7 - US$14
Description: Akbar bar is a local bar located in Jaffa's flea market. Since its opening in 2012, it has brought a refreshing and exciting environment to the market. The seating is indoors and outdoors, we serve draught and bottled beers from across the globe and we serve our special house cocktail. For happy-hour lovers, we have great deals for alcohol and food. we believe that sharing is caring, and that's why we serve specials of two for 69 NIS and four for 128 NIS. Our staff is entertaining and very friendly, they are the best people to show you around and tell you about the awesome places to hang out at, where they go themselves. Friday noon is definitely the time to come and party with us, we have a free live show for everybody around to come and shake their booty. At the second floor, we have a pool table just to relax and enjoy a game together. As for food - we are proud to tell you we make all of it on the spot, making it fresh, tasty and friendly priced. We love to take photos of our craziness, check Akbar out on FB.

This area of Jaffa is urban renewal at its best. Lots of tiny more pub than restaurant places serving happy locals at tables in the street in the perfect Tel Aviv spring weather. Akbar is one of the best, serving excellent chorizos, pizzas and other pub food, and the best pint of Guinness I've had outside of Ireland.

I had a raucous time there last weekend with my wife and her colleagues (paid for by her company, thanks) and went back today with my son after watching his favorite soccer team lose at the nearby stadium.

Guinness and sausages for me and Jahnun (a Yemenite savory pastry, only on Saturdays) and Coke for him made a disappointing day all better.

Enjoy

This was a casual cafe in the flea market area. A real find. The hummus was the best we have had in all our meals in Israel. My husband enjoyed his pizza with tuna (something different) while we sat and watched Israelis wander by on their way home from work. Our waiter was very helpful and patient. If we could find it again, we would go back!
