We stopped for lunch and what a treat! We had no idea what was what on the menu, so ordered a meze, which was very tasty, followed by chicken and onions wrapped in a large crispy pancake, which was huge, but superb, swilled down with homemade lemonade with mint. Cracking!

The food was just average. Good price but not amazing food or service. The restaurant is dated and old

When we visited the restaurant we were the only guest at that time. Because of the issues in Syria, Jordan suffered a lot of cancellations hence the slow business. There was no buffet served that day, but we didn't mind that fact as we are not real buffet people. We were offered a mixed grill of meat & fish. As... More

The lunch buffet was very good and we enjoyed trying local dishes. We were hungry after our walk through Petra and this was a great choice.
