Dolphin Yam may sound more like a name befitting a water park than a seafood restaurant, but that hasn't gotten in the way of its status as one of Jerusalem's most venerable culinary establishments.
Currently housed in an intimate setting with an attractive bar on Ben-Shetach Street in one of the city's hottest restaurant and bar districts, Dolphin Yam specializes in moderately priced non-kosher seafood: heavy on the fruits de mer, the most convenient Jerusalem culinary shorthand for "trendy" (shrimp with a variety of sauces to choose from, fried calamari, oven-baked blue lobsters in wine and Roquefort dressing). The restaurant also has a massive selection of both traditional Israeli fish (musht, burri and denis) and fish from further afield (sea bass).Dolphin Yam even caters to those diners who normally avoid fish restaurants – namely red meat fans, vegetarians and children – with steaks, pastas, vegetarian selections and chicken nuggets and french fries for the kids. Each meal comes with a tray of Israeli mezze.
