This is a difficult one to review. The food was excellent. Price/quality, it will be hard to find anything better in aqaba. We had (amongst other things), the mixed grill, and it was excellent. Great choice, very tasty food. The thing that makes it a bit grimm, is that when we wanted to pay the bill, they clearly tried to... More

High quality food at very low prices. The service is always professional and polite. Upstairs the restaurant has a beautiful view over the bay. My absolute favourites are their salads, fish dishes and lemon and mint drink(-:

The restaurant is upstairs and we had a great view of a large mosque beautifully lit at night. We both got specials which were three courses for 10 JD, which we thought were good value. We really liked the salad. My grilled fish was good, the mixed grill had a lot of lamb on it. The service was prompt and... More

I have to say I was quite disappointed by several of them, which were recommended in the Lonely Planet but which I did not find tasteful...until wa... More

If you like the middle eastern cuisine, this is your place! I would have been happy with the mere appetizers, but couldn't resist the main courses which definitely will not leave you hungry! Great value and very tasty food. Went here twice during our 1-week stay in Jordan. Strongly recommended!

We do like middle eastern food - particularly mixed grills - but this is one of the best we have had in a long time. We had a kilo - which was loads for even 2 greedy carnivores. All the meat was nicely spiced and very good quality but the lamb chops were particularly fabulous. Beautifully cooked and delicious with... More

A great restaurant with mouth watering dishes and the best lemon and mint drink. The service was brilliant and the waiters very honest. This is a place you must visit!
