We loved this place. The food was only okay (the Greek Salad was a little too soggy), but it was great to kick back and relax in a cool, styled restaurant. The Old City can sometimes be a little much to take in all at...More

We ate here several times. Stayed at the New Imperial Hotel next door. Great atmosphere. Always ordered the delish Arabic salad! Reasonable prices. Food in Jerusalem can seem expensive.

Versavee is hidden in a pleasant alley next to the Imperial hotel close to Jaffa gate. They have a great drinks menu including the renowned Palestinian Taybeh beer. Their cheese platter was simple but effective with the beers.

We visited this Greek Restaurant and had a wonderful time. Our server was one of the owners and he was very friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent. While we sat inside, they have a lovely courtyard for outside dining.

Located in Jaffa Gate square in the Old City in Versavee Building,it is a renovated architectural masterpiece of old world charm with clean, modern amenities. There are options for indoor or outdoor dining. The menu features local Mediterranean cuisine which is by far the most delicious in Jerusalem. The bar offerings are vast and the fresh squeezed juices are.The service is superb as the restaurant is owner operated. It is convenient for visitors to the Old City, it also opens late at night.
