We had been given a coupon for a 10 percent discount which the waitress... More

They all were done to perfection and the service was not by experienced waiter but it was followed up by a nice waitress who did her best.

I went on a busy evening but was seated upstairs quickly. The service was a bit more attentive than other Israeli restaurants in town and the food was really good. I was disappointed that the wine list did not include a nice Israeli Rose. Very convenient to the Inbal.

We were at Olive and Fish in a group of 8 family members, including 2 boys, aged 13 and 9. Everyone, including the children, agreed that the food was great, and the service was excellent. We highly recommend it.

Tasty and convenient to our hotel. Quick service and delicious food! We went right after they opened after Shabbat. It was late, but they were cheerful and the food and service were good.

OK so we were looking for something easy and enjoyable. We found both. Staff was English speaking. Owner operated and you see the quality. the menu had classic Mid Eastern food with a twist. Quality of the food was high and prices were not unreasonable. Wine and beer. We ate there twice on our trip!
