My wife and I had fish entrees and both were excellent. The service was very good and the atmosphere was pleasant. The customers were a mix of locals and tourists.

Delicious meal served by hospitable and attentive staff. The kebabs were my absolute favorite meal while in Israel. I even asked the staff to give my compliments to the chef. I definitely recommend you make it a point to enjoy a meal here.

Nice place for seafood. Very close to many hotels and doing a brisk business roughly 50-50 split between tourists and Israelis. Service a bit spotty (it was a full house) but far from awful. The food was really quite good in all respects, prices not at all out of line.

The food was outstanding. We were a party of 7 adults & 5 children and the service was decent. They cooperated by splitting our bill. I ordered a salad that came with the meal instead of before like the soup did. Did I mention that the food was delicious!! Short walk from Inbal Jerusalem Hotel.

I found this place while waiting for friends. I had a very nice lunch of tilapia, salad and bread with dipping "sauces". It was so good, I brought 4 other people with me for dinner that night. I am not much of a fish eater, but the tilapia was so good I had it again, only over linguine or some... More

This place looks really friendly, but this is only the surface. My wife and I were looking for a place to simply sit down to drink coffee and people watch, but the Olive and Fish folks ran us off. We saw people eating on the inside, but they didn't want to be bothered by us un-hungry folks. Later in our... More

A clean restaurant with friendly staff. The food was good and reasonably priced. I was more than full with a small appetizer and a big bowl of lentil soup.

We were looking for something non-touristy with a local flavor and this was definitely it. The restaurant was surprisingly busy for a Wednesday evening in December so I think a reservation would be a good idea. I had the Israeli salad and chicken parigyot (With a Galilee marinade) and my wife had the chicken salad. The food was good, the... More

I had a really nice meal here. We went here on a winter evening, looking for a kosher meat restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The restaurant is nicely decorated and comparable to better european places. We had reserved a table in the afternoon with one of the waitresses. However when we arrived the reservation had been lost. The owner very... More
