If you visit Petra I highly recommend to have your lunch or dinner here. A great selection of local food in a very nice atmosphere with very interesting photos hanged on the walls of local and arab public figures, mainly political and artistic persons. Don't...forget to enjoy the appetizers and I strongly recommend the local famous "mansaf" dish. Very nice and friendly staff, and very nice owner I had a chance to meet. Thank you sir.More

Wonderful food close to the enrance of Petra. Loved the traditional Bedouin cuisine. Moderate to low prices and very good size portions. The place was clean and the service was quick and friendly. I wish there was a place like this close to where I...live.More

The waiters are nice and the food is not bad but the surprise comes when you have to pay. We ate for 10 Dinar and had two water and two coffee. We had to pay 21 Dinar! We were treated to some complimentary sweets but...I think they put them on the bill anyway and added a service charge as well. The worst thing was that they caught us off guard as we were very tired from walking in Petra all day. We even gave them a nice tip :(. Once outside we noticed that the amount we paid could never be correct. A couple of hours later me and my girlfriend both had stomach problems. We do not know for sure if it was from red cave (lunch) or the evening diner.More

The food was exceptional, the staff friendly and accommodating. We had the Hummus and bread to start, followed by the Bedouin Vegetarian Gallayah, after a long day exploring the sights of Petra the food was a welcome feast. Definitely recommend the Red Cave.

we first went to this restaurant for afternoon tea and dessert, and we liked it so much that we went back that night for dinner. The restaurant is in a great location about two blocks from the entrance to Petra. The food was quite good,...especially the traditional Bedouin dishes.More

Also the manager charged us a 17% service charge. He was very generous to himself. The coffee at the end of the meal tasted like instant with creamer.

Initially, I sat at the terrace, but had to move inside since the internet is very weak. The pizza restaurant next door has stronger signal. Foodwise, good local food for standard prices. Nice staff.

We had a very nice light local meal here. There are also heavier main courses and well priced sandwich combos. Good, friendly service and seats outside.

Friendly manager showed us a variety of vegetarian dishes. He made us the hot drink Salab though not on menu. Enjoyed the meal. Prices comparable to other restaurants on this strip. Petra restaurant prices are expensive and cost 50% more than restaurants in Australia....so be...ready.More

I saw that they had big groups turn up with their group leader so I am sure that they would accommodate groups if given some notice of your arrival and numbers arriving.
