Elmarsa Restaurant is a chef's restaurant Located in the harbor of the port of Akko The structure of Ottoman customs, built by the Crusaders in 1210. It is a building that combines old and new, an ancient and glorious historic past alongside a peaceful and pleasant modern atmosphere. The restaurant overlooks the breathtaking view of Acre, the boats and fishermen who fill their nets with all the good and beautiful walls of the Old City, whose entire front wall is built of glass that allows you to look at the port of Acre and the fishing boats. The restaurant offers its guests a varied menu of fish and seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes, from the daily lure of the nearby market, in the personal and creative interpretation of the young chef Alaa Musa.
