Food was ok, pretty basic and not so oriental. Chicken was really dry but the seasoning was good. Shawarma was good and also the eggplant. Servise was good. Versavee has nice and peaceful location, right next to Jaffa-gate.

Cozy restaurant, delicious food, cold beer, excellent service, welcoming and friendly staff. We had chicken breasts with rice and the taste was awesome for a good price. I highly recommend this restaurant to try here after your long day walk inside the Old City.

A quiet place off the busy street. The lamb kebab is excellent. My wife really enjoyed the hamburger.

They open 6 days a week not open Sundays. Concidering the number of people involved it would be a good idea to give them advance warning. The telephone number and email address are on their website

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.
