This is what we perceive as a typical sidewalk restaurant. There the similarity ends. We were greeted at the entrance and immediately shown to a table. We did not have a reservation. Our waitress was knowledgeable and had a good command of English. She answered all of our questions clearly and as though she did not have another thing to... More

My husband and I went late after a long day of touring. We both had really good meals and the serviced was very good. Reportedly, others in our group were able to have the kitchen do somewhat special orders and one person got them to do a special order take out.

We will go again to this restaurant! We stopped in after a long day and a late evening. Nice atmosphere. We just needed something quick, so we had their chicken salad and salmon salad. Excellent food! I loved the salmon salad. Great, helpful service. Really enjoyed it. Very comfortable place and great food.

You really cannot go wrong with Olive and Fish. The food is nice, prices are reasonable, services is good and setting is relaxed. It simply is good and decent without being over the top. Well worth a meal there is you are in that area.

I went to Olive and Fish a few months ago. The location - the corner of Keren HaYesod and Jabotinksy - is very convenient and easy to get to. The restaurant feels like 'old money' - not ostentatious in the least. The wait staff is knowledgeable and the service quick. I ordered a lovely salmon dish which was cooked perfectly.... More

Olive and Fish is a short walk from several area hotels, including ours, the Dan Panorama. The dining room was reasonably quiet (dining is also available outside). The menu was large enough to offer something for everyone: I had a very nice salmon dinner. The prices were moderate for Jerusalem.

Traveling friends made a reservation for Olive and Fish at the recommendation of our hotel and were not disappointed. We had creative menu items, great service and awesome Israeli wines! The staff managed all 8 of us having a great time, eating and drinking! It was a terrific evening!

The food was great and the staff was very helpful. This is the second time I have been here. First time was 3 years ago. Both times were great.
