We ate here as part of our tour. I did not like how they mixed us with other groups, especially with the ongoing concerns. It really was not what I expected, I peeled and cut a carrot, chopped 2 cloves of garlic and diced a...tomato. The food was good in the end, but overall it was too crowded to see what was going on with the the aspects of the meal. I did not get much out of the experience. They also did not have enough seats at our assigned table for our group for the dinner so some had to eat elsewhere. We were jammed in the table as it was and they kept bumping into us every time they had to get a soft drink from the refrigerator.More

If you want to have a fun night out when in Petra, I recommend going to Petra Kitchen. When you enter, you will see a row of seats for people who came for the night's cooking event and a set of immaculately clean working tables....Guests go to the tables to begin doing food preparation after an introduction to the concept of the place. The work done by the guests is mainly chopping food and mixing items together for dishes. Interaction abounds along with the instructions. Much of the cooking for the main dishes was done by the professional cooks there. While we watched them, the working tables - pretty messy after our efforts - were transformed into clean dining room tables. The food was excellent. They serve no wine but, on request, the manager went to a store to get wine for those wanting it with the meal. At the end of the meal, everyone receives a booklet with the menus for everything we ate. The whole experience was a great delight.More

After spending an entire morning and early afternoon in Petra we were in need of an activity in the evening. The cooking class offered by Petra Kitchen was exactly what we were looking for. You have an opportunity to cook some amazing food and then...share a wonderful meal that you and the other guests have prepared. The Musakhan we helped to prepare was delicious and we even had some leftovers to bring back to the hotel! Having participated in other cooking classes around the world I would say that this is well worth the money and a great way to spend an evening.More

It isn't often that you are asked to cook your own dinner but you get a lot of help & the food is good if the service can be a little disorganised

In a party of six, under direction of the chef, we cooked ourselves a four course Jordanian meal. The chef was fun. Using all fresh vegetables, we made a variety of dishes from lentil soup, lamb arayes and Kofta. Recipes were all provided to us....Warning.. practice peeling a charred eggplant to avoid a very smoky tasting baba ganoush. A great thing to do.More

We had so much fun cooking and then eating what we cooked. The staff was fabulous and the owner was a hoot. Plus they gave us the recipes for what we made that night which was such a wonderful souvenir to bring home.

This kitchen offered a full set of courses that allowed us to participate and learn about the fabulous and tasty Jordanian specialties, from soup to main course. What is more, we got to sample our efforts in a truly all-inclusive manner. Highly recommended for those...who wish to gain an insight into Jordanian cuisine.More

This is a restaurant with a difference as you can learn how to cook here as well as eat here. The food was good and was very freshly prepared. Its a great place for lunch.

Quite a strange place as it is a cookery school as well as a restaurant. However we went there when it was very quiet and ate a good meal consisting of several Jordanian dishes. The food was very good and the service excellent, although compared...to some other local restaurants was on the pricey side. The format is interesting with your plates under the table and somewhat awkward high chairs around the high tables.More

You can just dine as we did also. No need to participate in a class. The food is plentiful and economical. Our tour driver referred us there and it was fine.

Kids would be fine - but I'd pop in and make a reservation when you arrive. Popular with groups and seemed to be on the radar for certain guides too.

Wine isn't available, soft drinks only. My guide book said you can take wine but no one did when we went and to be honest after a tiring day hiking around Petra we didn't want any. Enjoy!
