I wish there was a chain of these restaurants

We went to eat there one night and had to return there the following day to make sure it wasn't a one-off. The whole experience was a joy. Nothing but praise for every aspect of this restaurant (but I didn't use the WC!). The food was delicious and well presented at an affordable price

I've been here at least a dozen times over the past two years. This place has very respectable mezze at decent prices, a full bar, shisha, good service and gets lively at night. The atmosphere is a bit stark but when it fills up you won't even notice. In warm weather, sit outside and enjoy watching all the near-collisions at... More

Palestinian and local cuisine 3-5 mins walk from Mariam Hotel. Excellent cooking and serving was quite fast. The charcoal-grilled lamb chop was really, really good. Missed the cooking and would definitely returned to this restaurant when we visit Jordan again. Highly recommend.

Steps away from Mariam hotel, Best Western Grand and Rumman hotel is a clean, modern restaurant with good food for acceptable prices. Waiter speaks English. Airconditioned. Visa and Mastercard accepted. Clean dinnerplates and glasses, clean tables and chairs with cushions.Cozy lighting. Good menu. But all prices indicated on the menu are subject to an additional tax and service (+26%).

Ayar is the most delish restaurant in Madaba. Great atmosphere and yummy food. Good hookah as well. Great waiters that speak both English and Arabic. My favorite dish was the chicken bolognaise.

Quite the best home cooking in Madaba. The hummus is a highlight and the shish tawook is tender and tasty. Try the lemon mint.

My husband and I had dinner there 2 nights in a row. The food is great and the portions enough to share. We had a bottle of a good local wine. Don't miss the hummus with meat. It is simply beautiful.

I reviewed this restaurant in April 2013, and my second visit was not a disappointment. As happens with many restaurants here in Jordan they open with great food, excellent service and all the perks. After the newness wears off they decline to the point you don't want to go back again. Not so with Ayar. If anything can be said,... More
