Savida is the name of a type of squid, after which Ohad Horowitz decided to name his lovely restaurant located in the Turkish Bazaar.

It is a little, charming restaurant offering fresh fish and seafood daily according to season and the catch of fish found that day in the nets of Acre’s fishermen.

Ohad Horowitz of Shavei Zion, a wood artist by profession, and Dan Shemo of Lohamei Hageta’ot, a ‘Cordon Blue’ graduate and former chef of the Tishbi and Kimel BaGilbo’a restaurants, teamed up to established a place that is a delight to sit in and even more to eat in.

Overall it is a small restaurant designed for no more than 30 diners sitting around tables in the alleyway of the Turkish Bazaar or in the restaurant’s pretty backyard, and 9 other diners around the boat-shaped bar.

The music is fabulous, the food finger-licking good, fish are served whole or filleted; some fried while others are grilled on natural coals imported from South America.

The daily menu changes as aforesaid according to season, offering: sea bream, grouper, Intias, mullet, sardines, calamari and shrimps, all fresh, seasonal, available and exhilarating to the pallet, tasting like pre-freezing era cuisine.

The only dish regularly found on the menu is Siniya; Tahini, eggplant, pomegranates and pine nuts cooked in a heavy black frying pan holding a fish.

First course dishes at Savida include: pickled sardines, fish eggs Ikra, avocado salad in season, a market salad from quality vegetables bought each morning in Acre’s market, Taboon roasted potatoes, beets and kohlrabi, fish Ceviche served with cubed fruit, red onions, coriander, lemon and olive oil accompanied by handmade whole wheat Pita.

And for dessert the restaurant offers the neighbors ice cream: Alice Ice cream

The bar offers JSL-na Arak, Meiliya’s Masada Arak, Ramallah’s Taiyiba beer, Red wine from Lohamei Hageta’ot and local wine from Kfar Yasif.
