In a tourist-heavy place like Wadi Musa, it is expected that you might run into some not-so-great restaurants, as well as a lot of Western cuisine (wow, there is a lot of pizza in Wadi Musa!). But as someone who wants to eat traditional food wherever I am, I was happy to seek out Red Cave. We were there for... More

The restaurant is located right on the main street leading to the visitors center. The prices are very good and the food is excellent. Order the traditional Bedouin food. They have alcohol and the atmosphere is great. I loved the pictures on the wall depicting celebrities from around the world.

It is ironic when one goes to a region and most of the food is western like at home. We always like to eat local cuisine and were happy to find Red Cave. Good hot and cold Mezze and our usual falafel and lamb and chicken shwarma and kababs. Very convenient after a day's hiking in ancient Petra. Straight out... More

Great, friendly restaurant close to Petra gate. The service was excellent and quick. A great place to try traditional Bedouin cuisine. Try the baba ganoush - both the traditional version and the one you may be more familiar with are delicious, and finish with a flavorful Turkish coffee. Free wifi available too.

We had a great meal at the Red Cave which is a short walk from the entrance to the Petra Park. The food was good, reasonably priced, and the people were fantastic. The waiter was helpful and friendly. We stayed a long time and they treated us like old friends. A great experience.

The owner of the B and B in Wadi Musa recommended the Red Cave for dinner the first day that I arrived in town. It is located on what seems to be the only "main" street in town and is definitely part of the tourist strip. Although it looks small from the street, it is actually quite large once you... More

We ate here a few days ago, and were very happy with our meal. The Baba Ganoush type dip & houmous were lovely, and main meals very filling. It is a very easy walk from the main hotels near to the Petra entrance.
