Time Out says
Escape straight to Greece at this new beach-side eatery.
With a dreamy, eye-level view of the glittering Mediterranean and authentic fare, the new Greek taverna, Parakalo, is set to dominate the summer days and nights with its sprawling outdoor patio, freewheeling good vibes and colorful decor dripping in tasteful blue and white accents. Situated smack dab on the bustling beach promenade between Tel Aviv and Jaffa, the location could not be more ideal for a walk-by sit-down of spontaneous brunch, lunch, a drink and a snack or an all-out dinner and drinks scenario.
The open-air atmosphere and the eccentric mural, painted by Israeli street artist Elna Oo of local graffiti collective Brothers of Light, are perfectly synchronized complements to dining in the summer breeze, carefree, and grubbing on great food. What’s more is the purely hospitable nature of the waitstaff and Jaffa-born and bred owners, Hany and Nelly Grably, who take the utmost care in making sure you are enjoying every last bite. Make sure to order a range of fresh fish and seafood options like rounds of calamari and plump shrimp doused with lemon and tangy herbs. Their signature Greek recipes are inspired by Hany’s childhood visits to Athens, and the mezze platters, punctuated by fresh tziziki sauce, ikra and homemade flatbread are all winners.
