We arrived here with all the tour bus, and several,others. I thought the food was going to be lousy, but to my surprise it was really fine and enjoyable.

We ate here as part of our day trip to Petra. It was even fine for me as a vegetarian - with plenty of choice. I don't know what they would charge normally as the meal was included in our trip price.

The exterior of Petra Magic belies the decent food and service available within. My family and I would not have found it without the guidance of our local driver. Having spent over 4 hours visiting Petra we were in need of sustenance and this place fitted the bill perfectly , the lunch was a buffet but the quality and choice... More

Food was good: plenty of salads, warm foods and desserts. Soup was also ok. Nice view from the balcony. Worth visiting!

Our tour bus stopped here for lunch after visiting Petra. This place is filled with tourists, and is basically a banquet hall filled with long tables. The food was good, but not great. It was fairly clean. Overall, a fine stop for a tour bus, but definitely not a "local" place, nor a place that I would stop at if... More

Our driver recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed by any means. There's a wide variety of starters, mains and deserts. The view from our table was breath-taking overlooking the mountains. We also asked if there was somewhere to pray and the waiter kindly directed us to a quiet area upstairs. For desert you must try Um-Ali it is... More

Our tour to Petra stopped for lunch at this buffet restaurant. The tables were covered in dirty tablecloths, and there were flies buzzing around. The bathrooms were filthy. The buffet foods consisted of hummus and pita, lamb stew, a lasagna that wasn't lasagna and chicken. This is not for the faint of heart and only for those with a cast... More

Authentic food buffet style. Eat as much as you like and is the lunch stop for a lot of guided tours. Tasty enough, but personally am not keen on this type of eating.

We stopped at the restaurant for a late lunch (around 4 pm) after long day at Petra. We were tired and hungry since we had not eaten anything since breakfast. The buffet had many different dishes and could easily accommodate the two vegetarians in our group. The dessert buffet had some nice items, too. The place can get a little... More

We had lunch at the Petra Magic restaurant after our tour of the temple and city. The restaurant was to typical Western buffet restaurant with a wide variety of starters, salads, main courses and deserts. The food was excellent and most people went back for seconds and one or two even thirds. Drinks are not included in the above a... More
