I went here because of a good review in Lonely Planet and because the owner invited me to join him and the staff for their dinner once they could eat - it was Ramadan.
I thought that was fantastic, and I didn’t want to ask...the price in case I offended them. MISTAKE!!
After our shared dinner (which was also very basic), I joined another couple and we had a total of 4 coffees and some sweets. I went to pay for everyone, and the bill was 28JD. That is of course ridiculous expensive for Jordan, but I had arrived from Israel that day where this amount would even be cheap. When I realized they were ripping me off, I went back to complain, but the place was so full of locals, the waiter did not care, and I was too tired to insist. I left only very irritated.
This is just a warning that even in this recommended and apparently friendly place, they will happily take as much money as they can from unsuspecting tourists.
ALWAYS get the price before you buy or consume or accept a “gift” in Jordan!!More
