“A classic family restaurant in Aqaba”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

You can eat a full meal for about 10 JOD. The food is well prepared and the ingredients are good. it was Friday and there were many locals in this peculiar restaurant located at the first floor and decorated with originality. No frills but juts good family-like food at a very decent price.
Don't confuse this restaurant with the ground level, nearby eatery (also great and very popular among Jordanains), which is closed on Friday.

“Tasty, friendly, fancy interior - good value”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We sort of had a hard time finding the place, as despite the small down town, nobody appeared to know the Raghdan street neither did anyone know the restaurant. Some said: there is no Syrian restaurant in Aqaba. Well, after extensive asking around, avoiding taxis who would drive you the 300 meters to the place for generous 5 dinars, an older gentleman directed us to the place.

Anyhow, if you go from downtown towards the castle, you will get to a mosque that is well illuminated. The street that goes up on the left hand side is like a circle going around the mosque. Follow this lane, and after having made half the way (let's say exactly on the other side of the mosque, you will find the entry).

The waiter is friendly, the food tastes nice - so we went a second time to eat try something different, and were not disappointed. The lemon-ment juice is really fantastic, whereas the bread is served in a sealed plastic bag, which is of a little less appealing than hot bread, but it's okay, no worries.

Prices are okay, a little bit more than what you would pay in Amman.

Definitely worth going!

“Family Dinner at Syrian Palace”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Compared to the other restaurant food we experienced in Jordan, the Syrian Palace Restaurant was average. The food was not especially exciting and it looked more as if the food was geared to the tourist industry.

“Great food.”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

We ate a big dinner for four. Had the amazing waiter Ali who gave us a great expiriance and of his great knowledge of the syrien and local food. The price was reasonable at about 10jd per person and the food came quickly and abundantly.
At the end of the night, four happy fed persons walked back to the hotel, wishing for bigger stomach so they could keep on eating.
