Jacko Seafood Restaurant (Moriah Branch): "Mediocre Fish Restaurant on the Carmel" Top 5 Page for this destination Jacko Tip by iblatt

Jacko, Haifa: 2 reviews and 0 photos

We were strolling in the Central Carmel looking for a nice restaurant for dinner. We came across Jacko, which is one of a chain of fish and seafood restaurants in Israel which used to have a good reputation.

Their custom has always been to serve to small plates of "free" salads and appetizers, with free refills, until the main course fish order is ready. Well, in this case the assortment of salads was quite rudimentary, with a few small plates for the four of us. When we asked for a refill for most of the salads the waiters were quite reluctant and asked whether we couldn't just choose one or two to refill.

When the main courses (of various kinds of fish we had ordered) arrived they were quite disappointing: mediocre at best, my grilled portion of red drum was burnt in a few places.
Service was also mediocre, and the ambience uninspiring.

Next time we are going to avoid Jacko.
