Staff was pretty friendly and despite the kitchen being closed they served some hummus and eggplants. It was nice but not amazing and the bread was dry and not warmed. House wine only....ok but I like having choices usually.

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)

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.
