A couple recommended this restaurant and said it served good food and was a great value for money. They were right! The fish was great and the lemony sauce was amazing on it. Fattoush was good and fresh. The prices weren't bad too and their menu has western meals and local ones like grilled meats. Would recommend it.

We had a typical Jordanian lamb-dish with rice, which was not to our liking. The service was allright. We were almost alone in the restaurant.

Famous for seafood and for good reason. Grilled calamari was excellent, although it got cold quite fast due to the aircon. You must have at least one thing to complain about, apparantly...

Delicious food and good prices. The ambience is not the best, but this should be a very good choice with the limited choices in Aqaba.

My husband and I ended up here at the recommendation from our hotel. Food was edible, but not much beyond that. Wait staff dressed in sailor outfits. I ordered the Seafood Tageen and was given a family size portion of rice plus the stew. The veggies were overcooked; the fish and seafood were okay but just okay. I'm sure there... More
