Location: enter the old city through the Damascus Gate. Go down 100 meters the main street and you find that main road splits into 4 different roads. Turn left and walk 30 meters. The entrance is on your left. Go down a few steps. Open from early morning. The cook do not speak English. Will ask you: meat or cheese.... More

leaving these reviews is getting more and more difficult, as I go to new unique spots that are all '5 stars' but in their own way. Green Door is like nothing else. There are no signs leading you there, no address to be heard of. But it ends up being easy to find, just follow the directions that someone posted... More

a visit to green door is more about the search for a totally unique experience than it is about the destination. The composition is simple: personal deep dish pies topped with za'atar spices, tomato sauce, eggs and ground meat all baked in a coal burning clay oven. The end result is simple and satisfying but nothing to really lose your... More

At the bottom of the hill when entering Damascus Gate, make a hard left and walk about 100 feet to the place with about the most unusual and yet delicious pizza in the Old City. The four stars is for the food - it is a true Old City experience.

This was pretty hard to find as there was absolutely zero signage. The chef/waiter (it's a bit of a one-man-show out of season) explained they were currently renovating, so I guess this will have changed by now. Anyway, absolutely delicious Palestinian pizza - either with meat or veggie. Excellent value and a great location - seconds away from the Damascus... More

On my visits to Old City Jerusalem, often people have recommended the Green Door Pizza to me, but I was always a little leery of it because it isat the corner of a less traveled street and down several steps into a basement like room. The last time I was in the Old City, I decided to try it anyway.... More
