Good food, though a little pricy for the type of venue. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The lamb cutlets were very good.

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the food was delicious. We ordered a few appetizers and I had the mixed grill. The food was delicious but it came with fries and bread and I would have preferred rice and maybe some vegetables. I would suggest sitting further away from the kitchen as the noise seems to carry through the... More

Without doubt, this was our best restaurant meal in our week's stay in Jordan. A cut above the rest with good fresh food at fair prices (for a tourist place). The staff were very helpful. When we arrived, the front terrace was full (where you can watch the world go by), so they suggested we have a drink and look... More

Good meal in a convenient location. Some of the descriptions on the menus were not accurate to the dish. For example I ordered stuffed aubergine, which when it arrived turned ou to be suffed courgettes. Menu and quality of food typical for the area, nothin exceptional but perfectly good.

The menu is large, the food is great, and the service is good. They serve the local brew, Petra, which is decent and the portions are large.

We went here based on a suggestion from the concierge at the hotel after telling her that while we'd enjoyed Papaya the night before, we were looking for something more authentic. There were a couple Jordanians at this place, but it was still primarily tourists. Our fattoush salad was just okay. We got a yogurt dip with walnuts and peppers... More
