Savida Seafood Bar is a unique spot, with all of the fish served caught locally, promising only the freshest of seafood. The menu changes daily, in order to include whatever is brought in from one of the fishermen the restaurant works with. One of the principals of Savida is to develop a close relationship with the locals. All of its vegetables and other raw ingredients are purchased from the Akko market, keeping the menu local. Even the drink menu contains local alcohol, with Masada arak and wine from Ashkar Winery in Kfar Yasif. The fixed menu has sides such as roasted potatoes, ceviche, and a seasonal market salad, to compliment the catch of the day.
