“Go, but make a reservation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

The restaurant has received many write-ups, so it is hard to get in without a reservation. We did not have one, so we sat at the little bar. The staff is young, but well trained. The food was delicious. They know fish!

“Good Restaurant”

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

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

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”
4 of 5 stars 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”
3 of 5 stars 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.
