We had a wonderful meal here. The view is stunning and we were made very welcome after a tiring but enjoyable tour of Petra on a very hot day.

Average buffet. Quick and easy. Great views looking out. We felt it was a bit pricey for what you received.

Our tour guide brought us to this wonderful restaurant. The food is served buffet style with a soup, a large selection of middle eastern salads (tabbouleh, babaganush, humus, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.), a table of meats and rice, and a table of desserts. The huge salad selection offers plenty of food for vegetarians and people who are kosher. The bathrooms were... More

We stopped for a late lunch after a full day in Petra. The view from this restaurant is amazing. Service was very good and super friendly. The buffet was varied and had something for everyone. I can't say about the price as this was a lunch inclusive in our day tour.

Our tour bus stopped here. Most lunch stops were average at best. The food here was outstanding. We started with an excellent lentil soup, then great salads. The hummus and pita were fantastic. Then a great variety of main courses, then wonderful deserts. I can't recommend highly enough!

I know, I know, it looks like a tour group dead end. In fact, we were taken there after a day tour of Petra and we were delighted. This is a buffet in four parts. First, really terrific lentil soup. Very lemony. Second, a full range of salads. Lovely variety and especially good humus. Third, a main course buffet of... More

A petty average place with not too much to offer. The hummus was good. The pita could have been better. The desserts were ok. The views of Petra were really good. Service was good.

Our guide took us there. When we arrived many of the different dishes were already gone, so the selection was rather poor. The food was ok, not bad, particularly the chicken what was quite tasty, but nothing special about the dishes in general. The staff was not very friendly, rather serious, but they were not rude either although they seemed... More

Average restaurant with average local food. Arabic mostly but do offer a few continental options as well. Pretty expensive compared to the service offered.
