“This is a fish restaurant for foodies, situated in the port of Akko, near the lighthouse. It's not cheap, but the fish is fresh and well-cooked. Uri (the guy with the long, grey beard) is well-known for his restaurant, which has been open for many years.”

“Acre (Akko in hebrew) is a city located 25 kilometers north of Haifa. It is known for being one of the most ancient port cities, and exists since the bronze era. Visit in the old part of the city is very reccommended; absorb the vast history by walking between the walls and the tunnels of the city, see the old port and, of course, try delicious local food in the Market of Acre. ”
