The Old Man and the Sea

Ernest Hemingway's 1952 novel The Old Man and the Sea depicts the world of a poor Cuban fisherman who fights the wild sea. These elements of sea, fish and noble nature have also inspired the establishment of the well-known restaurant on Jaffa's Kedem Street – The Old Man and the Sea.

Now that the restaurant has branched out, it has a new location in the Jaffa harbor. The new setting corresponds with the restaurant's character: the boats anchoring at the marina, the pastoral combination of new and old and the smell of sea in the air complete its true nature.

The Old Man and the Sea is decorated according to international architectural standards, it populates up to 700 diners, and its grounds are larger than 1,000 square meters. Sits are available inside or outside the restaurant.

The Old Man and the Sea's menu includes a selection of fresh salads, which are prepared daily by the restaurant's kitchen staff, unique second and main courses and great fish, seafood and meats. The Old Man and the Sea's special deal includes 23 different kinds of salads, warm oven baked pita breads, a lemonade jug, main course (fish / seafood / meat), and coffee or tea and Awame for dessert – all for 69-89 NIS.

The Old Man and the Sea offers a room for private events, including up to 30 guests.
