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.

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
