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

My husband is Jordanian (I'm not). He is a well traveled businessman but they would not let him in because he was wearing traditional clothing! He doesn't drink alcohol - it was me that wanted a beer - and he was treated like a 2nd class citizen. Utterly ridiculous....and so demeaning.

We popped in for dinner and we're glad we did. The food and beer choices were good and the prices weren't over the top. Not the best we had in Aqaba but not too far off.

Liked: the casual quietness and out of the way location. Disliked: a bit hard to spot, you've got with somebody who already knows it.

We liked the location and the decor. This is one of the few restaurants where they serve alcohol. Service was good.
