“So-so”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

Some dishes are good, some are merely okay. The good news is they serve beer.

“Good food, lot of choice, friendly price and nice view.”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

In January 2012 we three times had dinner for four in Madaba, twice in the Bawabit restaurant. It was difficult to find a restaurant for dinner in the evening. We twice enjoyed a good meal for a decent price. Because two of us are vegetarian, it sometimes is hard to find sufficient choice. Not in this restaurant. Good meals on nicely decorated plates. Choose the table at the window, than you have a nice view for free. The last evening we had a late flight home, no problem for the staff when we sat rather long waiting before we drove to the airport.

“Good food (we're vegetarian), great service, reasonably priced”
Reviewed November 25, 2011

We are vegetarians and Bawabit catered to us well. The staff spoke enough English to explain the various items, and the food was fresh, well prepared and reasonably priced. (Tax and service included: not always the case in Jordan, where it's otherwise 16%.) We even enjoyed a local beer or two. The service was incredibly attentive without being even the slightest bit overbearing. We ended up tipping him in addition to the included tax/service because he was so nice.
