“Delicious, fresh fish”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Nice, clean restaurant. Not very cozy, a bit bleak. When you enter you can smell the salty scent of freshly caught fish. I ordered a steamed "whole fish", apparently depending on the catch of the day. When I got it on my plate, I saw they really meant a whole fish. The head, the gills, the skin, the fins, the tail: everything was still intact, except for the entrails of course. It sure looked a bit spooky, but it smelled really good.
Rarely have eaten a tastier fish than that one: well steamed, very nice natural taste of fresh fish. Excellent meal..
I don't exactly remember the price but I think it was around 15 dinar.

“Great food but not cheap”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

This is a very good fish restaurant. Not cheap, however, but there is plenty of food and the service is good. They have airco inside, but the terrace outside is fine too.

“good but not great”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

our family of 5 ate here during a trip to aqaba. it was good but not great. certainly nothing special. it appears to be what is recommended for tourists and prices also reflect that. simple grilled fish was the best dish out of the 5 ordered which included a variety of fried/grilled seafood. it certainly is not a bad place to eat, it just seems to be overrated and overpriced. the service we experienced was, however, very good.

“delicious”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

ah this one the second day after ali baba I think it's much more classy and more expensive but the food was fresher and it isn't too much touristic like ali baba which means less crowded!

“Bad food, for tourist only”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Bad food, bad fish, bad service, bad ambiance, and expensive. Go to Abu and Syrian place. Its far from any of the reviews I read in tripadvisor. Salads where nice, fish was very bad, we ordered 1.2 kg red grilled.
