“Not so great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

I found the food tasteless except the crab salad which was very good. Otherwise the shrimp, calamari and fish all tasted the same and the taste wasnt good to begin with. The service was horrible... ages to deliver anything including the bill... one of the waiters just kept on trying to convince us to take something else other than we wanted. We asked him for a shisha place, he said he'd ask and come back, he never came back. But in all fairness, my cousin loves the place and says the food is great :)

“Fantastic fresh fish and excellent cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

I would highly recommend this restaurant. The fish is very fresh and you can choose what you want from the daily catch which is on display. All locals in the restaurant and really good local ways of cooking.
We found the restaurant, which had been recommended to us, a little hard to find. The address is Manara St but on the two maps we had of Aqaba it was called Prince Mohammed St. If you find the very large flag in the The Great Arab Revolt Plaza and walk up the main road opposite it you will find The Ocean a short way up on the left. It isn't particularly fancy to look at or inside but it is the best fish we have eaten and the staff are very charming.

“Good (fresh) sea food restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

Food is very good, despite restaurant does not look too much promising from the street side. A bit out of the touristic centre of the city. Apperently fish is very fresh - owners own a shop on another side of the street..
