About Dolphin Yam

One of the most popular fish and sea food restaurants in Jerusalem, Dolphin Yam (translated as Sea Dolphin) attracts locals, Israelis that come especially from the rest of the country and tourists. The restaurant has been a mainstay in the city form 1967 years in large part thanks to its the professional chefs, great customer service, affordable prices and outstanding cuisine.

Cuisine & Menu

The restaurant may be most famous for its fresh fish and superlative seafood but its other specialties include an extensive selection of meat, pasta, vegetarian dishes and kids meals. The menu combines local flavors and uses carefully selected fresh and seasonal ingredients.

If you go to dinner or lunch hungry (we recommend it, actually), getting the generous seafood (250 NIS) or meat (270 NIS) platter for 2 is definitely a must. The seafood platter is a smorgasbord of calamari, shrimps, 2 types of crab, scallops and mussels, and with the meat platter you get rib-eye skewers, lamb chops, beef fillet medallions and 4 Middle Eastern lamb kebabs with the option to add some foie gras for just 25 NIS.

And if you're dining party is more than 2 people, don't worry. You can add an additional portion to your platter starting at 125 NIS per diner.

Location & Events

Dolphin Yam is set in a preserved Jerusalem building on Ben Shetach Street in downtown Jerusalem and maintains an authentic local atmosphere.

The restaurant has a gallery floor that can hold up to 65 diners and is perfect for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, business meals, and other events.
