“Seafood & Fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We celebrated our birthdays with a group of 16 persons at Dolphin Yam. Everyone had a good time as they were able to accomodate us with reservations and the seafood was fesh and tasty. They were generous with the complimentary appetizers which went well with the delicious bread offered. Service was most pleasant and to top it all the prices were reasonable. Their seafood sphagetti done with just chilli, olive oil and garlic was a delight.

“Bringing food to perfaction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We've celebrated my mothers in lows Birthday there, now you have to understand that this Lady is one of the best cooks in this world and she just loved the food. This is my barometer to an excellent place to eat in Jerusalem. The food was tasty and fresh, this is so important with a fish and sea food restaurants!! The prices are very reasonable,and you're getting very good value for you money.

“good fish (non-kosher)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

This is a non-Kosher seafood restaurant. We were a group of about 20 people, and were seated upstairs in a room by ourselves so it was very easy to talk with everyone. Dolphin Yam serves traditional Israeli fish (musht, burri and denis). We had a nice Israeli wine, appetizers, potatoes, salad as well as all the above mentioned fish. Everything we had was delicious. This restaurant is located on a side street not far from the new lite rail and Jaffa Road.

“Excellent find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

We were headed to the Old City and we decided to have lunch on the way. The Dolphin Yam really attracted our attention. It offers outside dining on a rather quiet street. The main emphasis was fish but we opted for pasta & olive oil, excellent. This was served with focaccia and 7 salads (small). Price was $$$ but worth it.
