We are pleased from the service. Seafood and mushroom soups were excellent. We don't recommend grilled shrimp and calamari. The prices were high.

It's probably the best you can do if you want fish in Aqaba but don't get your hopes up too high. The place is spacious and clean and does serve alcohol so you can have a beer with your meal. The fish was uninspiring though you'd have better luck ordering the grilled shrimp than anything else.

We ordered couple of fresh fish and they were great. They were barbecued topped with lemon and they were very good. The price is not bad too .

We had dinner at Ali Baba while we were in Aqaba last week. it is a good place for seafood. it is very hard to find Aqaba catch fresh seafood in any restaurant. But the way Ali baba cook the fish is excellent. all the appetizers are excellent but avoid the Calemari, very expensive with below average taste

The food was average. Not much more to say. The service was patchy. A lot of the fish is not caught locally

This was possibly the best combination of flavor, freshness and cost during our 10 day trip in Jordan and Israel. We stopped in for lunch on our way from Wadi Rum to Israel just before our border crossing. We arrived at opening-1pm during Ramadan and found the fried calamari and the kabob platter dishes to be very, very tasty. The... More
