Immediately after checking into our hotel that was just across the street from Captains, we were on a mission for food that ended in Captains dining room.

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.

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.
