We had dinner and enjoyed the quiet setting. The service was prompt and sweet. Their salads, especially the market salad were great so is the bread. I wish they had vegetarian main course, but still the variety of starters were good enough for vegetarian choices. Their espressos were great but the turkish coffee was not even near a turkish coffee.... More

Not bad, not great. Good location and good alternative to overpaying for lunch dinner at the nearby hotels.

We paid 600 NIS for 3 people. 2 salmons teriyaki, 1 entrecôte, 1 dessert, 1 San pelegrino, 1 bottle of wine, and one espresso. It is expensive in comparison to the quality. The food isn't tasty. There is lack of skills to prepare the sauces and to choose the fish and the meat. The chocolate cake was too sweet. However,... More

We were seating near a group of about 20 people resulting in a noisy atmosphere. Couldn't have a conversation. We should have been seated in the other room, far away from the group. The sea bass was tasteless.

Nice restaurant in Talbiyeh neighborhood, the service is fast and some of the waitresses manage to speak French and even chief is prompt to come for a little discussion. The meals are tasty (chicken mango 😋), a little improvement could be made with the desserts. You can go there and enjoy a nice evening, you won't be disappointed.

Olive and Fish is a kosher meat restaurant on the edge of the Talbieh neighborhood. It's an easy walk fro several hotels including the King David, King Solomon, the Inbal and Dan Panorama. There's always a nice selection of appetizers and nightly specials. English speakers are welcome because the staff is more than able to speak it. I find the... More

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
