We really enjoyed the food and service at Bawabit, and the restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere. The seating on the first floor is maybe a bit nicer than the top second floor. We dined here twice during a 3 night stay in Madaba, and tried a lot of the local dishes and they were all delicious, fresh and good value for money. We thought it was overall better than Haret Jdoudna, where we went one night as well.

Ate at the Bawabit one evening. Food was okay. Nice view from balcony although the windows could do with a clean.

We recently traveled to Madaba over a Eid Break and had the pleasure of dining here. We'd been searching for a local dish recommended in our Travel Guide book and none of the restaurants we'd visited had the dish. When we asked Bawabit Madaba if they had the dish on their menu, they didn't, but they volunteered to make it special for us!

The owner of the restaurant was on site, was extremely pleasant, and the chef seemed happy to accommodate us.

The dish was excellent but the attitude and sincere friendliness of the staff is what made this restaurant stand above the rest.

I went here on my last night in Malaba. The fixed menu of four fresh traditional starters and the mixed grill was very good, and at 13 dinar I think value for money. There was also a musician playing in the background that provided a local feel to the night.

Very good service, very good food for a reasonable price. Not all the dishes are on the menu, so if you want to try more traditional Jordanian food, just ask the staff, they will be very enthousiastic about it. We tried the mensef there and it was excellent!
