A great place to get cool drinks and some rest needed to recuperate from the Old City bustle. Service is great and food is tasty. Very family like style.

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.
