For some reason, we ordered mixed grill which had nothing special and wasn't tasty. The staff was friendly and professional. I hope the restaurant will work harder to keep its reputation of one of the best restaurants in Aqaba.

During my latest visit in Aqaba I returned to this nice restaurant in front of the Hilton hotel. This time the service was less good than before. Food served is far from the quality it used to be in the past. An arabic salad turns to be just vegtables cut in big portions and not into small little diamonds as... More

Good restaurant but expensive as compared to other fish Restaurants in aqaba. Food is good and the location is in the middle of the city. I visited it once, I don't think i will repeat the vist.

This restaurant has been around for decades. It is a mainstay on the main street of town. As long as you don't arrive at a time with a tour group, then your service is generally good and quick. The decor inside is nice. The food has always been tasty. Nevertheless, it is one of the more expensive places in town.... More

Ali Baba is one of Aqaba's best seafood restaurants. I found it to be above average. The service is hit or miss, just like most places in Aqaba. I recommend trying this place.

I had dinner in this restaurant. I ordered some salad and grilled fish. The salad did not taste good. The fish tasted very good. in general I liked the food, but it was pricey. Later I found that you can get similar food 40% cheaper in other similar restaurants in the area. The staff were OK, but not very professional.... More

Ali baba is well knows with their sea food platters, am not a fan of sea food, so I ordered mixed BBQ platter, it was good, hummus was a bit old, they don't serve alcohol during Ramadan, prices are a bit expensive

We were 4 friends & ordered 4 different dishes & appetisers. The portions are OK although other restaurants put larger portions. The problem was in the taste of the food. The spices or combinations of flavors used are not acceptable. None of us enjoyed his or her plate, even the appetisers! the place itself is not attractive, dark from inside... More
