“Good Restaurant”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

We had a meal there one night, near our hotel so it was very convenient. Food was good. Worth a try.

We ate at Olive and Fish twice while in Jerusalem- everything was delicious! The first time we had the moussaka appetizer, Israeli salad, duck, and one of the chicken dishes, and the second time we had the salad again (it was great), the entrecôte, and the sea bream. Everything was cooked to perfection. Highly recommended!

“pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We recently visited Fish and Olive with two other couples only because one of them observed kashrut (kosher) and the restaurant was convenient to our hotel. I had passed it by scores of times and never found it inviting from the outside. I was plesantly surprised to find a larger space than the outside would have indicated with a very nice ambience and an extensive menu. We arrived without reservations at 7:30, and although the restaurant was crowded the maitre d' arranged seating for us in an upstairs level within 10 minutes. The entire staff was more than accomodating, spoke excellent English when describing the specials and gave us the entire night before we asked for a check. The food was better than average kosher fare with everyone at the table pleased with their dish. The filet of sea bass over asparagus and tomatoes was excellent as was the dijon marinated chicken shnitzel. The very convenient location makes it an excellent choice for the several nearby hotels.

“Decent spot for a Jerusalem meal”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We were 5 peple and other than a bit of a delay getting the billing worked out had an enjoyable meal. The food was a little better than average and the service was friendly.

“Very Good Restaurant (Get the Chicken with Honey!!)”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We ate here last month on our second night in Jerusalem. We enjoyed it immensely! As soon as you sit down they come out with a wonderful lemonade and mint carafe for the table. Next come all kinds of salads and dips to try with pita breads. I had the chicken made with honey and dates, and have been thinking about it ever since!! My partner had the lamb kabobs-but thought it would be done in chunks, rather than in meatballs. We ate out in the front enclosed porch, but walked around inside also. The ambiance is lovely. The wait staff is very attentive and had a very neat appearance. I would definitely go back and wish I could get the recipe for the chicken! It was unbelievably good!!
