Though there are plenty of options for very good meals in Aqaba, Rovers Return is the place to go for expat comfort food and drink. Burgers, fish and chips, pints of beer. Need I say more?

While visiting tourist attractions of Jordan and being a bit fed up with falafel shawarmas on 5th day, we decided to check out this place. What a pleasant surprise- great food & good selection on drinks. We ended coming back here every evening for the duration of 4 days we stayed in Aqaba while diving. Fish & chips was particularly...

It's the first place I head to in Aqaba. The food is just awesome (The best fish and ships I had in the country), drinks are exactly how I want, and the staff are extremely helpful, happy and professional. There is one bartender I would recommend the most; his name is Salam. Salam gets what ever we want to have... More

So...in common with other reviewers the RR is neither good nor bad - but a "British" pub in Aqaba? Food is ok if you want a jolt of pub grub but it's a little overpriced. There are definitely cheaper places very nearby to have a few drinks as well. But I guess it's one of those places that you have... More

Nothing spectacular, nothing bad. Quick service and you can get a drink here which is not the case in most of Aqaba. Food was good hearty and cheerful British style.

i went here with two of my brothers a few months back, and i have to say it was not the best experience. the fish and chips were soggy like they had been frozen and then re-cooked and people were smoking all around us. not pleasant

The Rovers Return is a pleasant pub mainly for expats. They have a good selection of beers and wines. But the food is very basic and not very flavorsome. On my three visits so far I ate the steak, chicken curry and club sandwich. Out the three meals the steak was the best.

Food here is amazing and good prices. But use fly repellent if sitting outside as I was bitten very badly.
