Great food, good value

Less expensive than we had expected, very good quality fish and seafood, enough variety for our tastes. My daughter (7) enjoyed the mixed grill, I had lovely seafood tagine. Doesn't serve alcohol. Service was efficient.

Perfect service, very clean with air conditionned ! Perfect for a lunch or a dinner. One of the 2 restautants with a card of wines in Aqaba. You have the choice between a very very good seafood menu or traditionnal jordanian menu to.

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

We went to Captain's to eat Mansaf, Jordans national dish for my birthday. The hotel we stayed at told the restaurant that it was my birthday and they surprised us with cake and sang happy birthday in jordanian! The food was really, really good! The portions here are big so come hungry! All the waiters are dressed in sailor uniforms... More

Well, a bit too spicy to me. Otherwise very good meals, rather big portions. Seemed to be quite popular also among local people. Nice oceanic decor inside! Highly recommendable but be prepared ask for mildly seasoned meal.

Captain's restaurant was recommended to us, especially for its local cuisine, but when we went there for dinner we were told that those courses were only served for lunch. Instead, we ordered an "Aqaba special" catch of the day plate, with 1 kg of fish served with veggies and potatoes. The fish was grilled too much, so not much sense... More

We had motabbal (eggplant puré) with bread and halloumi as appetizers, and it was delicious! 10 JD for a 250 g steak filet minion with pepper sauce is really worth a try, we absolutely loved it. The lamb chops was unfortunately not worth eating.
