We were a group of 20 & stopped after visiting Petra. The restaurant has beautiful views, is very clean, bright & airy. It was a cheerful ambiance. The buffet was quite good. There were many choices of salads, chicken & even pasta (which wasn't bad, I'm Italian) The prices I don't know since it was included in the tour. Tha... More

This is a really nice restaurant which overlooks the mountains of Petra and the small town attached. The food is plentiful and tasty. It works on a buffet style dining experience and the waiters are very helpful and rely on tips. The only problem here is it is a stop off point for tourists who have come from Petra which... More

Simply superb!...local buffet dishes. We have to eat whatever is offered as we were very tied & hungry after travelling & walking the mountains & places of historical on the desert during our pilgrimage. To be honest, the foo were plenty but we could eat much as we were not used to the kind of food.

Even though this place was part of our day in Petra, the food was fresh, plentiful and very tasty. Buffet? Sure, perfect for me! Excellent choice by our tour guide operator, Desert Eco Tours!

I'm not sure what some of the other reviewers are talking about. This place is clean, with decent buffet food and a nice view, but it is NOT a four or five star place. If you are in the area and looking for a decent buffet at a reasonable price, by all means, stop in. If you are looking for... More

Fantastic food, wish I could have tried more of the dishes but I ended up full. Very good value with great views back out over Petra. Great stop if you are hungry after a wander through Petra.
