Good meal

Friendly service. Nice ambiance. I had good hummus, and tasty lamb meatballs with vegetables in a sauce and it was very good and the portion was large, I had leftovers to bring to Petra for lunch. They make their food only when order is placed and hence there is a short wait, but wifi is free and... read more

I have been there with my family( 6 adults and 4 children ) after spending the whole day at Petra. We have reached the restaurant starving and consider it due to the TripAdvisor seal at the door. The food was not tasty at all ( everybody from my family was from Jordan and knows what a typical food supposed to... More

We ate dinner here several times during our stay at the Petri Guest Hotel. Food was great, music mellow and soccer on TV for sports fans. Sameer, the bartender, was great. Jaffa, the bar manager, entertained us with an occasional bar trick and local information. Mohaiod, our waiter, suggested several local dishes for us to partake. We were working with... More

This restaurant is good for trying traditional Bedouin food but not the best we've had in town. Food came quick and was tasty.

We staied one night in Wadi Musa and we ate at this restaurant where we tasted a very good hummus, a good babaganoush and two very tasty bedouin main dishes: mujaddara and saniyat dajaj. The local was quiet, clean and not too expensive, for being very close to Petra Main Gate!

It is located very near the Petra site and is a nice place to go for lunch or dinner. There is both indoor and outdoor seating and televisions on the inside. The menu includes a mixture of local, traditional, and some Western food. I came here twice and all the food we got was okay and had reasonable prices.

We had a nice dinner with good tasty lokal dishes. I had "up side down" dish (don't remember the name) which can be recommended. The service was good and quick.
