Description: 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.

“Delightful lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Right by the Jaffa Gate in the Old City. Delightful decor, Melodic chanting of Monks being played softly. A great Ceasar salad with Chicken and capucinno. A young boy helped with the service and was so kind and gracious, it made me laugh. Very reasonable pricing. Highly recommend taking a moment to sit and absorb the magic of Jerusalem.

“Charming, friendly waiters and really good quality/price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This is a lovely place where you can eat good food and a lot of different kind of drinks (they even have belgium beers). The waiters are really nice and speak French and English (I also heard some German and of course Hebrew and Arabic). The atmosphere is really good, we really enjoyed our times there in couple and with friends. It is a good location at the entrance of Jaffa gate.
The prices are not expensive and the food quality and quantity is amazing (I am french!). They have a lovely terrace but you have to check inside! I advice you the Picasso cocktail which is fresh and tasty. We went there many times because this is the best place for lunch, dinner, breakfast or just a drink we found in Jerusalem!
