Akko Restaurants’ Scene

back to culinary

Fine dining, unique chefs, specialty foods abound
Perhaps you’re seeking food that is slightly different, with a point of view, a fancy menu, or just a nice bowl of pasta.  It’s not fair to group all of these restaurants together, but they represent Akko’s newer restaurant ‘scene’ – from fine dining, to Italian inspired menus, famous chefs or unique owners.  The only common theme here is a fresher, more innovative or eclectic take on food.  This is where tradition meets innovation.  Sometimes because of a new chef who has studied abroad and returned home to give the local food a new twist or introduce a whole new cuisine. Sometimes becomes of a unique combination of owners that come from different backgrounds and collaborate to create something new. Whatever the reason, be sure to experience a delicious menu in the enchanted atmosphere of Old Akko.

The menus vary from Italian or French to Seafood or Mediterranean, and they abound with new and delicious flavors. Ceviché, sashimi, tartare, lamb carpaccio, sea bass in a coconut milk and apple cauldron, Palestinian Musakhan with saffron and pine nuts, Canard à l’Orange, Coquille St. Jacques, taboun pizza asado, fried artichoke in lemon cream, goose liver in beet sauce, shrimp gorgonzola with parmesan cheese, crab meat in seaweed and cream sauce – these are just a small taste of the dishes that await you in these unique restaurants.
