“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

This restaurant was recommended, however we would not do the same. Service was friendly and good, but food arrived cold, and kebabs lack any flavour. Overall dissapointed.

“Good inexpensive food, but Haret Jdoudna is better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Really nice service and inexpensive food with a view of the town and the Greek Orthodox church. However the superior meal is to be had at Haret Jdoudna up the street.

“Eat with the locals on the 1st floor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Great restaurant with good fresh food . Lentil soup, salad , good meat. Chips. All were lovely. The first floor was full of locals smoking shisha. The lady who runs the place was friendly and the staff were friendly and helpful, dinner for 2 with beer, water and complementary coffee was 30 JoD.. On the upper floor there was live music and some dancing. Don't be put of by the corridor entrance and stairs the restaurant is worth the climb
