Who would have thought that a weary traveler could find a cozy pub near the eastern shore of the Mediterranean that offered over a hundred whisky varieities and 15 great beers on tap? "Beer is the proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy" is a quote from my fellow American Benjamin Franklin, bannered across one of... More

This place has an incredible selection of whiskies. I wish most duty free shops would offer their selection of single malts. The draught beer selection also is much richer than most places in the area. Only tried their burgurs latley which were good - but the fries could have been better. On a friday night the place is crowded so... More

Norma Jean is sort of hidden and you'd miss it unless you knew it was there. It looks like you've turned down a road with nothing on it. But once you find Norma on the wall and get inside you'll come to realise that they do a beastly burger. One of the best I've had in a while actually. Good... More

We had 2 dinners at Norma Jean, located in the same street as the Florentine hostel. The burgers and ribs were very good. There is a lot of beer to choose from. The staff was very friendly and let us taste some unknown beers before ordering a whole glass. Good value for money!

Nothing exciting or innovative about design or atmosphere or menu. Just a regular place in south tel aviv.

Went to this place twice while on a business trip. Really enjoyed it. I love the American/British rock n roll / blues music they play. The food is very good and the selection of whisky is large. The staff is very courteous and look like they enjoy themselves, having a good time while working. Outstanding bartending service when I sat... More

We keep coming back year after year and it remains consistently excellent. I especially like the delicious seafood skillet. Although they specialize in whiskey and beer, their house wines are also good. The music is always perfect and creates a very sympathetic atmosphere. Oy vey - I wonder if the place will change once the massive building construction across the... More

Lots of beers on tap to choose from which is great, large bar with definitely an enclosed pub atmosphere, very nice inside. We sat on the patio which isn't very... More
