“Gerat place for fresh fish”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Unfortunately there was a noisy group of about 30 Nordic or Scandinavian tourists who acted as though they had the restaurant to themselves. by the noise they were making, we suspected that they must have had a tipple before the meal in their hotel room (the restaurant does not serve alcohol). But I can't blame the restaurant for guests' behavior.

“Wonderful Restaurant, Highly recommend it!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

From the moment you enter the restaurant, the sailor dressed servants, decorations and cleanliness set the atmosphere!

The staff was friendly, smiled and looked super cute in their sailor suits!

I had several dishes including soup, salad and fish and they were elegantly served and tasted fresh and delicious! I even started to like hummus because it tastes so different when it is fresh.

Highly recommend this restaurant!

“Meals ahoy!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

After spending a few days at our resort in Tala Bay it was good to venture into Aqaba for an evening meal. At Captains Restaurant the menu offered a variety of fresh seafood that we had yet to experience in Jordan. The decor and attire of the staff is quirky, but don't be put off as the meals are freshly cooked, reasonably priced, and well presented. We encountered some new flavours and spices we hadn't experienced before in Jordan. The staff, as in most Jordanian businesses, were attentive and took care in making sure we enjoyed our meals and providing us with extra salads and bread with out being asked. We left the restaurant feeling well fed and happy.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Having been in Amman, Petra and Aqaba for a week and found the food delicious, this was our worst meal. Extremely disappointed. We allowed the reviews to tempt us to dine here but we would not recommend this restaurant and how it came to be so high in the ratings is a mystery!
The only saving grace is that it is cheap - you only get what you pay for!!

“Excellent food & service”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

During our stay in Aqaba we twice had dinner in this restaurant. It was recommended by locals and we were not disappointed. Fish dishes are great. Portions are really good and prices reasonable. Service is good and friendly. Located right in the center of Aqaba and easy to find.
Indeed good value for your money
