We tried the Chef's tasting menu, where you tell the waiter a bit about your likes and dislikes, and then they bring you different dishes, until you say stop! We started with salmon with wasabi sorbet, jackfish cerviche and salmon banko. We also had a pumpkin cappucino and a fish soup, which was delicious. Our last dish was shrimps in a lemon/buttersauce with black rice noodles - also very good!
We had a good evening, but I would recommend to come early, so the waiters have time for you - later in the evening when the restaurant fills up, they get very busy.

My wife and I were exiting the Crusader Tunnels and stopped to read the menu at this restaurant. While we were standing by the entrance, a man came out to say hello and that this was the best restaurant he had ever eaten in. Not a sales pitch as he was with a group tour and it was the first time he had even been to Israel. With those glowing remarks, we had to at least try it.

It was amazing. We had scallops, salmon, and shrimp and all three dishes were excellent. I actually am not usually fond of salmon as it is too "fishy" for me, but my wife and I were fighting over the last bite.

Our server was fantastic. Talkative, helpful, responsive, and genuinely nice.

The atmosphere was great as it is perched right by the exit to the tunnels and across from the water.

Truly and excellent dining experience in a cool little town.

Great fish restaurant with lots of atmosphere, tasty dishes and interesting combinations of spices. In the old city of Acco, beautiful area, near the Mediterranean. If you get to meet the owner/chef, you're in for a real experience! What a character!

Good, quality restaurant in Akko. A lot of people have complained about the tasting menu, but we actually liked it. It gave our waitress a chance to become involved in helping us with our meal, and trying to think of things we'd like. She did an excellent job and was very outgoing, in contrast to most of the surly service you get in Israel. Not every dish was a hit, but most were solid at least, and there were a few stand-outs, including shrimp with lemon and artichokes, and scallops with brown butter. There's no view unless you are at the windows. I was happy to see that Uri himself was in the restaurant and he came by to check on each table, which is always a nice touch.
