“Great pub for Ireland lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

A great place, full of plenty kinds of beer from all over the world. Service is being given every time you just look up from your dish. Dished are excellent and the barman was great- when sitting on the bar gave us something to try which he made himself (some king of whisky). MUST book a place before or you might wait more than an hour outside.

“The widest selection of beers and whiskys to be found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Experienced and knowledgeable service, amazing selection of beers (with quite a few locals as well), and quite a nice variety of whiskys. The food is classic "pub food" but excellent.

Make sure to call in advance for reservations - it can get quite full, especially on weekends.
Great atmosphere for a night out (free parking too!).

“Great pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

I love the place.
They have a wide selection of beers, always play great music on the background, and the food is excellent, way beyond what you'd expect from a pub. I'm a vegetarian and I always find great stuff to eat there (personal favorite- eggplant in tahini. It's a must try dish).
Bottom line: good atmosphere, excellent food and drinks, highly recommended.

“My favorite bar in Tel Aviv”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Tel Aviv has a lot of trendy bars that change every year, but if you're looking for a bar with a soul, I'd recommend the Norma Jean. Great pub food, quality beers from all over europe (and boutique Israeli beer) and what I've heard is the largest collection of whiskey in the country. The music is never too loud, and it's really a place you can sit for a long while and talk with friends.

Every time people come to visit us from other countries, we take them there and it's always a great time.

“Great atmosphere, wonderful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

This homey place boasts the largest selection of whiskey in Israel, but that isn't he only reason to visit Norma Jean. The food is simple but very accurate and very tasty and well worth the value. The staff are really friendly and the background music is a great collection of funk, soul and blues.
