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.

There is nothing special. Prices are moderate. Service is poor. Location is in a dark alley. I don't know why it is recommended in trip advisor.

We had chicken fillet with shawarma spices, and it was tasty. You can eat in a quiet, nice atmosphere.

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.
