Nice little restaurant close to the entrance to Petra. The staff were very nice, food was delicious. Lots of local specialties were on offer. Maybe a little bit expensive, although no more expensive than your average tourist trap around the entrance to Petra.

Service was lackluster, it was clear the server wasn't interested in serving us and quite dismissive. This was disappointing as he was the least friendly Jordanian we encountered on our two weeks in Jordan. Low quality tourist food, with expensive (relative to area) price-tag. We try to always order local food when we travel as we find it is almost... More

The restaurant is close to the entry. The staff helped us in choosing the best local cuisine. It was tasteful and a lot. I did read the previous comments on TripAdvisor and therefore we shared. The complementary mint tea was excellent. Prices are very reasonable.

I must confess that my husband and I are lovers of authentic, local food, and therefore we aren't usually open to restaurants in hotels, but by the time we arrived at the Petra Guest House after an exciting day in the desert we were grateful that our tour coordinator had booked dinner at the Red Cave Restaurant.The restaurant is STUNNING...

Two stars because I know what we ordered was not prepared fresh. We had a shwarma, which was very obviously made hours before and put into a pan to heat up. The edges were so stale that after they were pan fried, were rock solid and inedible. We also had a rice and vegetable dish, which could've been baby food,... More

If you like Ukra this is an amazing dish. My wife had the Maglufh. It's huge with lots of lamb and rice. She... More

We stopped here for lunch before heading into Petra Park and were pleasantly surprised. The food is what you'd expect in terms of variety, and as usual, the salads are the best. The service was wonderful -- I think it was the owner who stopped by wanting to make sure we were welcomed and comfortable. They also offered us complimentary... More

Open all through the day and into late night. This is one of the best places to eat in Petra. Its quite near the visitor centre and a nice place to relax after long day visiting Petra heritage site. We were served by Omar, a very helpful and patient guy. The food was so good that we came back here... More

The restaurant is in an actual cave which is cool; the food selection was diverse enough and the drinks good.

Decent hummus, falafel, lemon mint drinks. We had a few meals here (lunch and dinner). Even the burger was tasty.
