Norma Jean has been the hangout spot for my group of friends and I for several years. Whenever we want to go out for a drink and dinner we usually end up there. The atmosphere is nothing special, a big room with lots of whisky bottles at the bar and a very good assortment of beers. The food is great... More

We've been there so many times, it's constantly good. Enjoyed a great Czech lager along with yummy Caesar salad. One of our party mentioned that her "market" salad was 99% lettuce and barely had anything else (the waitress previously recited a list of all kinds of anticipated vegetables). Oh well. She embarrassedly offered a complimentary dessert that we declined but... More

The place is simply great. The beer selection is excellent, the menu is all that a pub should have and more. The atmosphere is superb with great music at a volume you can still talk. The location is off the main streets so that only people who know the place come. Recommended!

A lovely cozy bistro bar with excellent moderately priced dishes in generous portions. There's a great selection of whiskey and a very good range of beer. it is not a fancy place, service is pleasant, and the food simple and accurate. great value for money - highly recommended!

For the last 6 years I visit this pub several times a year. The atmosphere is very good, the waiters really knows about all the beers and can advice you. The food is good but, I think that the sea food is much better then the steak. I'm going tomorrow for my birthday, I love this place

It doesn't matter what you'll choose to eat here, I will be really great. The atmosphere is the best around, and the drinks are really great. REALLY like this place, and it is my first selection when someone asks me where to go.

Went out for drinks with some friends. We sat on the bar. I ended up having the baby back ribs and an apple martini. No doubt these were the best ribs I'be ever had in Israel. Service was great. Fun atmosphere. Good value for money. Definitely going back there soon!

Me and a few colleagues went for a whiskey tasting night. We found Norma Jean online and were very happy to see the whiskey menu. We tried a lot of them and they had 99% on stock. We also had some food, and I can say that the burger I had was one of the best ever. The beer selection... More

I have been sitting in this pub for few years. Every time I visit israel I visit tjis place. The food is very good and the selection of beers and whiskeys is impressive. Will probably visit again next year.

Reminds us local pubs in Ireland. Great food, many kinds if beers from around the world. We come here once a month. Open 'till little hours. It is the first place the manager opened. It has another "big brother" called Porter and sons, but this is a real gem!
