A Pleasant Experience

I personally liked the spiral staircase entrance to the pub - which is decorated in such an appealing way. Its atmosphere and the music were perfect, and the staff were really friendly. However, some of the foods ordered (like burgers) were either under- or overcooked, but they were still tasty and... read more

I personally liked the spiral staircase entrance to the pub - which is decorated in such an appealing way. Its atmosphere and the music were perfect, and the staff were really friendly. However, some of the foods ordered (like burgers) were either under- or overcooked, but they were still tasty and juicy enough to compensate. I'd say it's better to... More

This is a British style pub, which is located in the Gateway complex. It is one of the main facilities there. It has pub food and alcoholic drinks. The portion sizes are quite large. Sometimes it can be a little pricey for Aqaba standards. Overall it is a good place to eat, drink, and socialize with other ex-pats.

My favorite place in Aqaba. Great stuff, fantastic food. Located in central Aqaba, offering alcoholic beverages, cocktails and a good crowd.

It's one of the best Irish pubs in Aqaba.. Nothing beats the rovers platter and an ice cold beer in a sunny hot day. Burgers are good too...

Rovers Return was just what we were looking for after a day in Aqaba. Great place with a great staff. The pub is on the 2nd floor with an outside seating area which is great to watch the sunset. The food and drinks were good. Nice to have some comfort food! Definitely recommend!

This restaurant pub has never disappointed me. Each time I come to Aqaba city which is the beach and port are of my country Jordan - 315 km south of the capital Amman; I come to this place for a good meal. The food is always fresh and tasty; drinks served cold and the most impressive element is the service,... More
