The Olive and Fish is walking distance from many of the best hotels near the Old City. The food is well prepared and the early courses are generous, so bring an appetite. We were with a group on a schedule and had to get the desserts to go. The fish was fresh and well prepared. Definitely worth a visit.

This restaurant is right across the street from the Inbal Hotel. After a long day of touring, it was nice to eat in a casual low key place with good food. Portions were plentiful, and there was a variety of choices, not just fish. This is not a fancy schmany place and the service was excellent. Had the eggplant appetizer... More

Made a meal with warm bread (comes with dip & olives), asparagus appetizer, soup, moussaka appetizer. All appetizer & soup portions are large. Fast, friendly service. All the Israeli wine is very good.

We eat at Olive and Fish every time we are in Jerusalem. The food is always excellent, and there is a good ambiance there.

We went there based on the concierge recommendation and weren't disappointed. We had a whole fish deep fried. It was delicious, fresh and flavorful. Nice atmosphere service was timely and polite.

First night in Jerusalem, we crossed the street from our hotel--the Inbal--and were not disappointed. Delicious kosher food! I had Mango chicken, which they very kindly made with dark meat at my request. Delicious "Orange Soup".
