We celebrated our last night in Aqaba at Floka and we had a great time! Being allergic to sea food, I was afraid that there wouldn't be a whole lot of dining options for me. And yet, I was pleasantly surprised to see a number of menu options that were not fish or sea food.

They have a vast outside terrace, so it was nice to take advantage of the weather. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant occupies prime real estate, however, and the high number of tourists mean that everything is overpriced. Be that as it may, the portions are generous, so it's not that bad.

Sure, there are cheaper alternatives in Aqaba. But if you want good food in a nice setting, Floka just might be what you are looking for.

Very busy restaurant, popular with both locals and tourists. Seating both inside and out. Good service. Decent mezzes, followed by fish. Again the fish was quite pedestrian, and nothing we would care to order again.

We stayed at a hotel nearby and noticed this place was always packed. After eating there, we understood the reason. The food was delicious and the ambience was delectable -- you get more than value for money, especially compared to Western countries. We had the tabouli, babagoush and goat cheese salad to start - the best salads we've ever had! It was a great start to a grilled fish meal that was just as it should be: a whole fish with the right mixture of lemon, garlic and salt. You could taste the freshness. Simple but satisfying. This quickly became our favorite restaurant in Aqaba, and we imagine it's the same for others.
