Dine on Fresh Seafood and Fish in Ancient AcreHoused in an Ottoman-era stone building beside an old lighthouse at the port of 'Akko (Acre), Uri Buri restaurant has been serving fine fish and seafood for more than 30 years. Must-try dishes include salmon sashimi in soy sauce with wasabi sorbet, and a Thai fish chowder with coconut milk and basil leaves. Owner and chef Uri Jeremias has had a long-standing relationship with the sea: His first two jobs were as a diver and a fisherman. Jeremias also owns the Efendi Hotel nearby, as well as the ice cream parlor up the street from Uri Buri. So for dessert, stroll by and try some of the unique flavors on offer, such as date, cinnamon, and rose.

Fish and Seafood on Another Level
Merchants, pilgrims, and warriors have gone out of their way to visit Akko over the centuries. If foodies have joined that list in recent years, it’s thanks to this innovative fish-and-seafood restaurant. Housed in a 400-year-old Ottoman house with vaulted ceilings and attractively peeling walls, it’s made an international name for itself with dishes such as caramelized tilapia and scallops in creamy ginger sauce thickly flecked with seaweed. Experimenters and indecisive types rejoice: everything on the menu is available in a half-portion.
