This restaurant is a hidden gem in Petra! As you walk in the decoration is really nice, you can feel the Bedouin theme. You either have the choice between buffet menu or card menu. The dish was really nice and the staff welcoming. I recommended...to try this place with a nice view while visiting Petra.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.
