BABAI (Jaffo)

The oldest Jaffa restaurant, Babay has its own history. The Babay restaurant’s owner used to be a fisherman but then decided to open a small seaside tavern. In the course of time, the tavern has grown into a big restaurant but has kept its light atmosphere of the small cosy place, where you can feel the aura of beautiful Jaffo tales. The restaurant’s cuisine is really impeccable; everything is fresh and home-made. If you want to try local fresh saltwater fish, you’d better do it here, in Babay restaurant! Babay is situated on the top of rock, overlooking the sea, in the most beautiful place of Jaffa. It has a spacious hall with original and authentic design, as well as a big yard facing the sea, where you can host any event with 600 seats available.
