The only great thing about this restaurant is the ambiance, especially when busy and people sitting outdoors. The food was not great, quite dry and quite overpriced. I would not recommend compared to other treats nearby

Go there for the Mezze and a glas of wine. The Jordan St George is okay. Most restaurants don't serve alcohol. Traffic on the roundabout but nice sitting on the terrace. Perfect simple spot with fresh food..

Everything we ate was good, the service was friendly and in the end it didn't cost much compared to other places.

i came here after reading reviews and lonely planet recommendations, the food was good, the service was great but it wasn't anything special. It was good but not sure why LP raves about it. I'm still giving it 4/5 as it ticks all the boxes and is tourist friendly.

We had lunch here, and chose a selection of hot and cold appetizers and salads. They were delicious! As usual, the Arabic bread was served cold in a plastic bag, and I would steer clear of the "juice" unless you like sugar bombs. Go there for good, cheap food and to see the video "The Royal Tour", a travel documentary... More

Food is very good. Prices are moderate. A bit slow in preparing the food. Courteous and friendly staff.

We enjoyed our food so much that we went a little overboard with the ordering. It wasn't even too expensive and was so worth it.
