What a great restaurant for traditional Jordanian food. The meals were delicious and full of flavour. The staff went above and beyond serving our every needs and every question we had about the food. Highly recommended for those who are seeking Jordanian food with exceptional service.

After our visit to Petra the guide booked a table at the Red Cave. We were pleasantly surprised by the starters and main courses. Best food we had in Jordan.

I did not expect more than this... It's located in the middle of the most touristy place and hundreds of them came out of Petra site after several hours of walking there. What the restaurants can do must be quite limited I believe. For it, the place is clean and staff were friendly, food was also fresh and good. What... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal for three. The grilled fish was hot and spicy served with rice, our friend had the lamb, and he enjoyed it with gusto. First try of a lemon and mint drink, freshly made. It was a little like a mochito without the alcohol, would recommend this. The restaurant is close to the Petra entrance and... More

We were able to eat when there were no tour busses and loved it so much, we went back. There are only a few restaurants down by the World Heritage site, this one is my favorite close to the site.

On a night where it seems we were literally the only people walking the streets, I'm glad we stopped at Red Cave. Quick service (we had the place to ourselves), interesting interior, very friendly waiter, and good local food. I'll be back in May when we return!

The 'casserole' style traditional dishes were lovely, full of vegetables, tender meat and flavour. Salads and bread were also good. The restaurant is good value. Staff were pleasant and efficient. A nice casual relaxed place to eat after a day round Petra. We sat by the road, great for soaking up the atmosphere of Jordan.

This is a pleasant restaurant on the main street in Petra town (about 500 metres from the entrance to historic Petra). There is a good selection of Bedouin and Jordanian dishes (including salads), and the restaurant offers a set meal with a selection of local dishes. In common with most restaurants in Jordan, alcoholic drinks are not sold but there... More

I went there 3 times and had in general good food at very reasonable to moderate prices. The restaurant seemed clean and well kept, but is not spectacular. Their staff is generally friendly as well. I would eat there again if I was in the area.
