I ate at this lovely restaurant in December 2018. On top of the great food, their staff is super friendly and helpful. I happened to mention we needed to by a new charging cable for my phone, and the manager called a shop in town...and had i delivered to us before we finished our meal. I'll go to My Mom's Recipe whenever I have a chance to return to Petra.More

This place has done it's best to cater for tourists in an agreeable way. It's sprawls at least three floors but doesn't feel extremely crowded. Meals are abundant and tasteful.

I don't think my experience here justifies the use of superlatives when describing it, but as compared to the rip-offs downtown they definitely serve much better food for a much better price in a much better setting. Definitely a recommendation!

We arrived after hiking Petra to the monastery so we were famished. We'd been told by another traveler of this restaurant and had actually gone past it in the morning. It is located very close to the entry to the Petra site. The 4 of...us ordered different things and right now I can't remember what they were but can remember they were all GREAT and the bread........served straight from the oven. Try it but make sure your hungry.More

I would have loved to have eaten here again, but there was not an opportunity. I had the Makloba which was delicious along with the fresh lemon with mint drink. We did order some hummus as recommended by other reviewers and that was delicious along...with the warm bread!! We went early and glad we did because they filled up fast. Nice atmosphere and service.More

Delicious food with wonderful staff. Beautifully decorated with live music! This is a short walk from the entrance to Petra. May be the best meal we had in Jordan, we returned a second day.

My friends and I had a delicious dinner. We appreciated the warm, fresh pita bread and loved the classic dish lamb mansaf. The ambience was delightful -- beautiful, charming and cozy. An excellent oud player added greatly to the authenticity and enjoyment of the experience.More

I think it's preferred specifically in the high season. Honestly my own experiment was without any reservation and we found a table very easily, the floor is large and the staff are helpful.

I don't recall exactly but it was not what I'd call expensive- fair price, good value for an excellent meal. Good idea to check their web site.
