This appears to be the place for all European tourists to go. Our company during the evening were all pale skinned or burnt. If you need to get a drink during Ramadan in Aqaba look no further. They carry Guinness as well as others, including a bitter. Prices are reasonable for Jordan. We had the filet mignon and chili. The... More

Situated in the aqaba gateway this restaurant has a 'coronation street' theme going on. Not that I'm much of a fan of corrie it attracted me on the basis of getting something to eat that doesn't consist of overcooked kebab and falafel. The staff are strange and there's awkwardness rather than being made to feel welcome. Food isn't too bad... More

We at the rovers return at Friday the 13th. We watched the match between the Netherland and Spain this evening. They had made a screen with chairs for the Dutch supporters. Their service was good and the evening was really good specially because the result was 5-1!

If you seek western styled cuisine, this is a good pick. Portions on some dishes are a little skimpy, especially the mashed potatoes, but good nonetheless.

The Rovers Return in Aqaba is a themed pub with pub style food, the staff are friendly and helpful and there are numerous televisions showing sport and major events. There is a wide selection of alcohol on offer but as you would expect in this country and surrounding countries it is expensive for what you get and especially against UK... More

This is really the only bar worth visiting in Aqaba. I've been here a few times, twice last October and again last week. Both times, I have only had drinks so I can't comment on the food. Inside it feels like a pub/sports bar and outside there's a nice terrace. The cocktails are great, especially the frozen margaritas and the... More

We had lunch here almost every every day for one week. The prices are good, the food is tasty and the service is also very good. It has all you expect from this kind of place, typically english pub. We also went here at night, after dinner at the hotel, for drinks. The same at tight; friendly staff and good... More
