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 once and this is a great place to escape too without leaving the Old City... 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.

My friend and I were walking from after dark from the New Gate and a little shopping. We saw the side of the restaurant that is pictured above and decided to go in. We had to walk up and around to get in the front door. The restaurant is not right on the street. You have to find this treasure!... More

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.

I visited this place a handful of times and I was impressed ever time. The restaurant is owned/run by a local named Gaby and his French wife. They are both very friendly and accommodating. The food is fantastic and they have a decent beer selection (by middle-eastern standards.) The menu is in English and the prices are fair. I highly... More

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.
