Nice Bedouin Cuisine Restaurant

Located on main street not far from entrance to Petra. Not very crowded (tourism is way down). Manager was generous with large portions to share.

We were a group of 15, and had lunch here two days running. We were very well looked after. The food was excellent, and the staff could not have been more helpful

We ate here on our third night in Petra and it was our best meal. The portions are enormous so you might only want to order 1 main course between two, otherwise a lot gets sent back.

in short: very friendly staff, less tasty food, prices are average. This place is nor an outperformer nor an underachiever.

We have spent three days in Petra, a wonderful and magical experience, and found the Red Cave Restaurant to be one of the best restaurants on our travels in Jordan. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the food (especially the fish and chicken) were tasty, and well-prepared. Do not miss this restaurant while you are in Petra.

The menu had various categories but we stuck to the Bedouin specialties, including baba ganouj, smoked eggplant dip, and kofta. All were fresh, tasty and generous portions, and the usual complimentary hommus was also very good. As it... More
