Average sea food .. good service ... expensive for what you get

Went there based on recommendation from an Aqaba native .. the place is clean, sea food was ok ( had higher expectations) ... a bit expensive for what you get ... staff were nice though ... i would like to try other restaurants next time in Aqaba

my husband and i had heard about this restaurant from a couple we met while traveling. we thought the name sounded silly and strictly tourist, but our driver said he takes his family there , too. we tried it and LOVED it. ask the waiters for local off menu specialties. we returned for a second meal. yum.

One of the few restaurants that serves alcohol in Aqaba, that alone would rate it highly in my estimation but actually it is also a perfectly decent place to eat. It's a large, cavernous, rather gloomy restaurant but the staff are attentive and the menu quite acceptable, including seafood, fish, grilled meat and 'international ' dishes which we avoided. The...

Doesn't worth the money you pay for... Food isn't that good, and the value for money isn't that high ... Most importantly; the service is so slow and ... ahhh ... bad ...

As we are Middle Eastern, we experienced poor service compared to foreigners. The serving size is small and the prices are too high. The food tasted ordinary. We left the restaurant still hungry. Would not recommend this place

I have been to Ali B's many times over the space of 6 years and it consistently delivers good food, good service and a busy sidewalk ambience. There is seating inside, and upstairs (where the toilets are always clean and fresh) but my preference has always to get into the atmosphere in the outside seating. The food is always good... More

I ate here for lunch and selected a variety of appetizers while my friend chose another appetizer and a fish entree. ALL of the food was well prepared and tasty. If I was re-visiting, I'd like order only the hummus w/ lamb because that one dish was so delicious and filling, it could easily suffice for the entire lunch. The... More

We ate here twice and the food was very delicious. We had Jordanian starters, salad, prawns, fish fillet. The staff and servise were also very good. So I would recommend this place for really good food. Prices are also reasonable.
