Ahavat HaYam has its good points and bad ones, too. I'll start with the negative, since it may mean that you can't get in. The restaurant is on the upper floor of the gas station across from Gan Sacher, a large park in Jerusalem, near Binyanei Ha'uma and the center of town. I only saw stairs, so handicapped accessible it isn't.
If access isn't a problem for you, Ahavat HaYam is a wonderful fish restaurant. Don't let the gas station turn you off.
Once you walk in and see the large space, including a glassed in room for special events, you'll know that this isn't your ordinary restaurant.
As soon as I sat down, even before ordering, they brought out an amazing selection of scrumptious salads, like in the best of the Jerusalem grills.
There's a wide choice of fish meals, fried or grilled, and I stress the word "meals," since I didn't notice an ala carte option. You get the Israeli salads, fish of your choice with either potatoes or a fresh salad, plus dessert.
