Time Out says

A longstanding Jaffa establishment borrowing inspiration from Hemingway's 1952 novel.

Since branching out to the Jaffa Port, The Old Man and The Sea has become more than a meal, it is a complete theatrical scene. From waiters running around like whirling dervishes, to giant pitchers of fresh squeezed lemonade, and so many vibrant salads you won't even need a main course (though you must try the grilled chicken, fish and kebabs), a weekend brunch at the port is worth braving the long line. Don't fret, it moves fast, and the fare is worth it. While the inside is cool on a hot day, we suggest braving the heat and eating port-side for the full experience. Throw in warm oven baked pita bread, and complimentary coffee/tea and tiny balls of honey-glazed goodness for dessert, and you'll never want to leave

The experience does not match its reputation

This is my first dinner in Tel Aviv, following the guide book and high ranking to this restaurant. But the experience was far low than average, disappointed and felt humiliated by one of the waiter. I will never come back, and I want to stand out to share my experience to those who follow the guide book to this "popular" restaurant.

One of the waiter, not all, has no patience for waiting for my order; and responded badly when i considering his dish recommendation; even worse, he remove the other half of my bread by his hand, when i was eating, and tried to explain that the main course was coming (actually it came 15 minutes later at least). No empathy, no politeness, not professional at all.

I am not the everyday-come-customer, but i need to be respect. The restaurant owns me a formal apology.
