“Amateurs”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

The scenery is really nice. But that's about it. All food was cold when served, and they didn't know anything about wine. They couldn't tell where the white wine was produced, it wasn't cold, and after pouring the wine they put the stopper in the bottle again. I think it is a problem they don't have any competition.

“Little know secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

If you venture out for a special meal, put Platters on your list of places to eat at. Located in Tala Bay, not usually busy except in high-days and holidays. Lovely fresh food, served well and one of the most excellent views over the Marina

“Good food and great surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

This is the best overall restaurant in Aqaba, and that includes all the hotels. Good value, good food and a decent menu. Especially nice is the outdoor seating area where you get a great sea and marina view.

My own favourite is the Sayadiyyeh, if you have a good appetite and like fish you should definitely try it. The burgers are also very good.

“Frozen pre-Prepared Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

A good place for a light / quick meal if you really have to! Food quality is average while also serving frozen prepared foods (not fresh) mostly fried versions. Acceptable Burger, Value for money not justifed.
