Good class kosher restaurant
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on December 7, 2017

Had a meal at the Olive and Fish with my wife and granddaughter. We chose the soup of the day followed by chicken schnitzel and chips which was very tasty. Just one drawback was that the chips were only lukewarm and we had to ask for fresh hot ones. But good value.

Good Food; Good Service

One of our better meals in Israel.

Just across from the Inbal hotel. The restaurant came highly recommended by our tour guides. They were right. Waitstaff, even though harried, we're helpful. Or choices were brought out quickly. Nice variety of apps and entrees, heavy on the fish dishes, which were all excellent. Many wines to choose from...

I’ve been to jerusalem many times and never had a bad meal until eating at olive and fish. It is truly a tourist trap. The service was truly bad. We were ignored after we were seated and when the waitress finally strolled over she was surly and had to be asked about the specials. Seemed like she really had no interest in being there. The food was uniformly bad. My wife’s chicken was undercooked and covered in a unappetizing and overly sweet sauce and made her feel sick. My Yemenite soup had a sour taste and the fish I ordered was supposed to be sea bass. It seemed a lot like tilapia and the chef came over and did offer to make another but I saw no point. It was serves with a pile of over cooked vegetables and a foul tasting sauce. My sons steak was decent but ordered medium and came very rare. They forgot to bring me a drink a ordered and I had to remind them. Just an unpleasant experience all around. This restaurant has been there forever and clearly has seen much better days. There are much much better options for dining out on Jerusalem. Any of the places in the tachana rishona down the road are much better. Avoid this tourist trap.

While spending a week in Jerusalem, I decided to try the Olive and Fish restaurant. It was near my hotel and highly recommended by the hotel concierge. It was only two short blocks away and known to feature dependable, contemporary Israeli dishes. I found the intimate space of the Olive and Fish quite lovely. While it filled up quickly, the restaurant never lost its elegant, low-key ambiance and there was no disturbing din to intrude on our dining pleasure. The restaurant décor is understated and stylish – just what you’d expect of a restaurant of this caliber. I shared the grilled eggplant with tahini and the hot salmon salad starter with the other diners in my party. Both appetizers were delicious. For my entree I selected the St. Peter's fish on a bed of pasta with zucchini, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, mint, and zesty lemon all beautifully presented. The fish was flaky, meaty, moist, and perfectly grilled. Someone else in my party selected the half duck cooked in pears, apple cider, and white wine and the other diner tried the chicken and beef kebabs. All of us commented the food was delicious. Everything was served at an even pace so we neither felt rushed nor did we wait long between servings. Olive & Fish is a sophisticated yet unpretentious eatery which I would recommend. While perfect for almost any occasion, I’d recommend reservations as it was quite busy on a Tuesday night in the off season. When you dine there, unwind with their house cabernet and enjoy the Olive & Fish experience – you won’t regret it or forget it.
