Every single salad put in front of us was so very good!!! We had 2 awesome servers that I were so nice & friendly to a bunch of Americans with only 4 people out of 25 speaking any Hebrew. The steak & potatoes come with this amazing spicy mustard that was much needed to clear out sinuses at our visit. The one chicken dish was made with honey & ginger but was not as sweet as it sounds & was very delicious. Ironically I did not try any fish but the salmon looked delicious & even though we were a large group everyone seemed very happy with all the courses. The servers are very knowledgeable about the ingredients of all foods since there were some people in our group with different food allergies. Good time, just a little warm in there so where layers so you can take them off if need be. Also the bathroom is upstairs & I did not see any elevator so if there is a problem going upstairs just know this before you visit but try not to let it stop you from going - the food is very good. Worth a night out!

We've been going to Olive & Fish as a family for years, any time we felt like spoiling ourselves with a nice evening out. (The chicken liver with pears is a particular favourite.) Last month, however, I organized an anniversary dinner there for over 80 people. Despite that number, the restaurant maintained its high standards of food, service and friendliness, as well as coming toward us with the pricing and doing everything to meet our special requests.

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!

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!
