Would not recommend to anyone! Most unfriendly to families with children. Waiter was very rude and we had to leave the place

Amazing coffee & presentation! The meal was wonderful as well. The staff was very attentive & engaging. Delicious food with a wonder ambiance, I would hurry back to this gem. We sat outside, the cats were a bit annoying, but the staff was diligent to scoot them away. There are many cats in Aqaba!

We orderded the menu of the day for only jod4. After 10 min the food came. Expect i orderded chicken and not beef/lamb. However this dish looks delicious i asked for the chicken. After 4 min the dish came with yoghurt and vegetables on the side. The chicken was cold but the rice was good. It tasted like biryani.

We turned up and the place was buzzing, full of lively local people old and young, some tourists but not too many, and the waiters were patient and kind. We ordered 4 or so little dishes to share, some (soft) drinks, and had a wonderful dinner there. Highly recommended.

I eat at this place regularly for one thing, and only one thing only: the goat cheese pizza. I get urges in the middle of the night for it. That's not to say that their other menu items aren't good. Haven't tried them. Only had the goat cheese pizza so far, and it's really good. Good, fluffy, chewy fresh dough... More

We ate here once during our stay in Aqaba. Restaurant seemed to be quite popular among locals - who came there to smoke shisha. We ordered mixed grill and a special pizza. Waiter didn't speak much english, so we had some problems when we tried to ask if the mixed grill comes with some kind of side dish (rice, bread... More

The lunch we had in this restaurant this week was my worst meal in years: bland overpriced food and terrible service. The food took forever to arrive. My mushroom plate, priced as a main course, was an uninteresting appetizer-sized portion served with stone-cold pitta bread. My friend's portion was unchewable boiled chicken served with overcooked vegetables in tasteless broth. Our... More

Tried Aqaba's signature fish dish in 2 other restaurants, not even close to the quality of this one. Try it.
