We went as it was close to our hotel. The food and service was so good, we went back a second time. The fish was excellent as was the chicken schnitzel. Very good but overpriced wine.

Loved everything about this restaurant in Jerusalem. Ambience, food and the service--five stars all around! We were a large group (approximately 50) and the staff were excellent. The tables were consistently refreshed with food and drink. The food--must be experienced!

Olives and Fish, a kosher restaurant serves the most delicious food in a casual yet sophisticated setting. We went twice during our time in Jerusalem. The kebabs are fantastic, the St. Peter's fish delicious. Their salads are gigantic and wonderful. The bread, crispy and fresh with a lingering somewhat spicy flavor. Soup was warm and comforting on a rainy evening.... More

I love the Yemenite soup and the business lunch. I especially like the chicken dishes and meat dishes I ate the schnitzel one day and had a steak another day. Both excellent

My wife, mother in law and I went to Olive and Fish for our Purim seudah. The service was good and the food portions were large and tasty. I ordered the Yemenite meat soup for a first course--delicious, with a delicious, large and well prepared entrecote steak and mixed salad for my main course. The staff was kind enough to... More

We ate here because it was included in our tour. Our options were limited, I had the St. Peter's fish which was mild and tasty. The appetizers were all good, and so was the dessert. Service was okay-we were part of a group.

We ate in this restaurant twice because our hotel was nearby and we loved the food. The fish was excellent and to be recommended: the St Peter fish on roast vegetables was particularly well done. On the second trip we tried the steaks, and they were really well prepared as well. The serving size is large, rather like American serving... More

We reached this restaurant by chance and had a great meal. It was relatively close to our hotel ( walking distance ) and the food was really good. The chocolate fondant is not to be missed!
