    In a nutshell: elegant and chic for small-medium scale events for adults (21+).

    Valero is a chic, modern, and elegant restro-bar located at the most popular location in Jerusalem – Machane Yehuda Market. The kitchen is run by chef Aviv Moshe and focuses on meats and fish made in a beautiful Mediterranean style.

    The restaurant uses all fresh ingredients, coming straight from the market’s vendors. For more intimate and elegant birthdays, it’s better to reserve spots from 6:30 pm-9:00 pm. If a night out is what you’re after, starting from 9:00 pm, the place transforms into a lively and dynamic bar where you can celebrate in a fun and happy atmosphere.

    Partial and full restaurant buyouts with special event menus and other requests are possible for small and big groups of up to 70 people.
