Saturday afternoons restaurants in Jaffa are packed and feel almost industrial. This one has plenty of room, a better location than almost all, a little more expensive, really good food (maqluba instead of soggy chips found at most restaurants was a treat), but no service....More

The restaurant is located at a super place overlookig the Jaffa sea and with the sun set is marvellous. Unfortunately the food is mediocre at beat and prices do not fit the quality. Good for children as ther eis lot of space to play

We've been to Babai several times through the years. It's a great place for a lunch with friends. Sitting high on the rock above the Mediterranean, with lots of space, and a parking lot, Babai is close to an ideal place to spend a weekend...More

The only advantage you get is the location, sea view but the food is not good and the prices are very high ... there are many possibilities to have good lunch / dinner in Jaffa this is not one of them

about a kilometer south of The Old Man & The Sea in Jaffa. I was trying to find The Old Man & The Sea, but I walked along the beach and missed it, what I did find was Babia & The Sea and it was wonderful. I saw The Old Man & The Sea on my walk back and it doesn't compare to Babia & the Sea. Better ambiance, less crowded and no tour bus' Babia has a far better view and I'm glad I found it. Seafood was great, salads were never ending and delicious
