We ate here for 4 nights because there was a good selection of local food and also vegetarian options. The staff could not have been more helpful The restaurant was super clean and the food arrived hot and fairly quickly. Nice lemon and mint drinks but no alcohol.

The food was very tasty and reasonably priced. It arrived quickly. The owner and his staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and very attentive. If we were staying in Petra more than one night we'd definitely go again.

My husband and I have been eating here for four years and plan to continue returning with every trip to Petra. The same guy has run the interactions with customers the entire time, and sometimes he even remembers us (we are only there in the summers). The food is tasty (though don't compare it with the Movenpick or Haret Jadoudneh)... More

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.
