Wonderful staff and good food. Wine was extremely corked and undrinkable but the waiter didn't seem to know what that meant. I would go here again, but have a beer instead (they serve Taybeh and Gold star)

This family-run restaurant has a lovely ambiance and character. The food and hospitality are great, too! It is situated just inside Jaffa Gate of Old City Jerusalem, where much is happening.

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.

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.
