Tel Aviv, such a happy place, sitting on the edge of the glittering Mediterranean coast, a sea ideal for swimming and playing unending games of matkot; a sea rich with marvelous fish. So it only makes sense that a seaside city such as Tel Aviv has an excellent selection of seafood places to tantalize your taste buds. Visit any of these places for a taste of fresh fish.
This summer saw the opening of Sarona Market, a fun indoor market with wonderful high end food. For this list, Fishbar is a must eat place. This restaurant is connected to Fishop, a place to buy fish and seafood also located in Sarona Market, meaning you get the freshest fish. You sit at the counter and give your order directly to your chef and then you get to watch as they cook your meal. When it comes to your table it is perfectly cooked and a joy to eat, providing you with dinner and a show.
If you’re heading down to Jaffa to look for seafood, make your way to The Old Man and the Sea. Named after Ernest Hemingway’s 1952 novel, this restaurant is sure to please the food critic and the literature nerd in all of us. Here they pay tribute to the themes of their namesake – sea, fish and noble nature – by providing a delicious spread of Middle Eastern salads and some of the best cooked fish on the Tel Aviv coast.
