We ate here while staying at the Mamilla Hotel, to which it is connected. Good selection of fish (duh) and good service but nothing "jumped off the plate. May have been negatively affected by nearby loudmouth countrymen (Americans) who decided that dinner was a good setting to discuss digestive issues.

Lots of chips, but tiny pieces of fish in breadcrumbs. Children's size portion. Was disappointing because co-eaters had full size pieces of fish that looked good. However, I was told that there were too many bones. The salad accompanying looked good, but, overall, the experience was not what was expected. Mamilla is a great mall, but there are other places...

Nicely placed, in the middle of the luxury Mamillah mall in Jerusalem, Happy Fish restaurant is one of the best in the city. According to the Middle Eastern tradition, they serve a very good choice of salads, before the main course. Delicious salads that are refilled by command. The fish choice is very good but no sea fruits - the... More

The food was great, good roof-top ambience and excellent service from the staff. Would love to come back again when I returned to Jerusalem. A recommended place if you craving for seafood within the wall of Jerusalem. Reasonable price. Special thank you to Lior Cohen and some unknown staff name that served us well that night. Love from Indonesia.

Located in the Mamilla hotel at the Mamilla mall, this restaurant specialized in fish which you can order fried or grilled. The fish was very well prepared and tasty. The dining room is comfortable and they have a business lunch menu.

The food and service were excellent. The prices more than reasonable for a restaurant in the main walking mall between the New City and the Old City. You must however, climb two flights of stairs. In good weather there is a huge open patio for dining too. Daily special for 129 Shekels (about $40) included a glass of wine, a... More

We went here because it used to be another restaurant that had a great review in a food magazine - but when we got here it had changed hands - and for the worst. The food was not fresh and it was over fried - and it was really not good. It was overpriced and the seats were bit comfortable.... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal and wine here. Well-priced meals and a good selection. Note: restaurant doesn't have a toilet, however, there are toilets avail to the 'left' stairway of the hotel which shares the same building.
