Delicious food

Menu has everything from pizza and hamburger to fish, paella and steak. We liked fish sayadieh the most - it was served with very tasty fried rice. Children's menu is also available. Outdoor seating area is ok, but inside the restaurant looks very basic.

The food was so delicious. We had the whole Fish Sayadiyeh 12.75JD and the Paella 16JD. Large portions. Cooked fresh. We tried it because they were offering 10% off. Wish I could give a higher rating, but food is not everything. For that price there should also be service and atmosphere. It s in a scenic location on the marina,... More

Nice atmosphere and delicious food. I loved the steak sandwich, Greek salad! It has a spacious yard next to it where the kids can play with scooters or bikes. It's a cozy and casual restaurant and the service is good too.

the sayadieh was to die for! The best I ever had, portions were huge, but a bit expensive! Atmosphere was very nice, great oldies music, and staff were a bit stiff but nice enough.

Of course you can still order their mouth watering burgers, pizzas and sandwiches, but you need to try their delicious Fish Sayadeh or Paella, the best you can have in Aqaba and worth the trip to Tala Bay if you are not staying there already.

Although it is located along the Red Sea extended arm Aqaba Gulf, Tala Bay wouldn't be one of the top contenders for sea food nor renowned for world class paella. A quick (but spectacular) drive away from Aqaba, Tala is a hidden gem by the hidden sleepy town of Aqaba, a place yet to reach its real potential among the... More
