This is a solid restaurant and is priced fairly. This kosher restaurant serves meat and has options for vegetarian and fish dishes. The food is excellent with equal service.

I must start this review by stating how pleasantly surprised we were with our experience. The last time we ate at Olive and Fish, 7 or 8 years ago, we went with friends who were regulars there and loved they that always had the same menu (standard Israeli fare with an expanded fish selection) reliably prepared to the customer's wishes....

We ate here two times while visiting Jerusalem during late March. Both visits were very good. This restaurant was very convenient to our hotel (Dan Panorama). The menu is not extensive but we found good choices both evenings we dined here. Staff were very friendly and quite capable. Prices were moderate.

Olive and Fish is a quiet restaurant featuring a diverse menu. It is equally suitable for families, date night, or a small business meeting. The food is delicious and the service is attentive. Very convenient for the Dan Panorama, King David, and other hotels close to the Old City. I had a wonderful chicken dish and my husband had skewers... More

Remember eating here many years ago - returned last week to find it every bit as good as we remembered. Wide ranging menu for both fish and meat eaters - all fabulous. Not cheap, but well worth it for a treat.

We have patronized this restaurant for many years (it is one of the longest continuous "non-exclusive" restaurants that we know of there). We recently went with friends from overseas and enjoyed our experience. One of our friends is particular about his food (including use of MSG). The staff were very helpful with the menu in that regard. The food was... More

My husband and I wanted to end our amazing trip to Israel with a great meal and we were not disappointed. We arrived at 8 PM Saturday (after Shabbat) and the restaurant was very quiet, but in no time it filled up. We started with the baked eggplant, followed by grilled St Peter's fish. My husband commented this was unlike... More

We went as it was close to our hotel. The food and service was so good, we went back a second time. The fish was excellent as was the chicken schnitzel. Very good but overpriced wine.

Loved everything about this restaurant in Jerusalem. Ambience, food and the service--five stars all around! We were a large group (approximately 50) and the staff were excellent. The tables were consistently refreshed with food and drink. The food--must be experienced!
