We were in Aqaba for a few hours and wondered on to the Captain's Seafood Restaurant in the old city district of Aqaba. We had a great meal and the prices were reasonable and at market level. My wife's Grilled Shrimps were tasty and I had a local grilled fish which was good but a bit too boney!! The mixed... More

First of all, service was very good, waiters were very friendly, played pranks with the children. But that's about it. The food was very, very bad. My wife's see food platter had a very strange, sour taste. Ok, that happens, she didn't like the way it was prepared. Much, much worse was that the grilled chicken skewers one of my... More

This is a big, spiffy operation geared to the tourist trade and tour groups. The atmosphere is distinctly Western, with the staff dressed in faux-seamen garb, etc. That said, the food was excellent. Large portions, so watch out. You can buy wine and beer at the liquor store up the street, but you can't bring it into the restaurant.

This place is great!! Every time i go to Aqaba eating at Captains is always a must!! What i love about this place is that their seafood is fresh. My favorite platter is the grilled shrimp. The shrimp is grilled to perfection!! The seafood rice is great as well. Definitely worth the visit.

Came here on the basis of good reviews. The menu is very short and hard to decipher. The meal was distinctly average, portion sizes on the small side and staff are eager to please, but do not succeed in doing so. There is no ambience in the restaurant.
