Big disappointment after a lot of good reviews, the food quality is average - you can find better food and better service at Aqaba.

This place gives you a real local dining ing experience in the heart of Aqaba. The atmosphere is great as you just sit down and enjoy the really tasty food cooked in the open kitchen so you can see how it is prepared.
No menus here, so just ask for a selection, and you be delighted with what arrives.
You can sit at a pavement table and enjoy eating with the many locals who eat here.
Service is fast, food is fresh and a meal for two will cost around 5 jd.
Don't be put off by the plastic chairs, just enjoy the experience.

This is the sort of place you need to pluck up a bit of courage to sit down at...

No booking here... Just turn up and sit down if you can find space! It's a genuine local's establishment specialising in the fast-fayre of hummus, falafel and fuul. It doesn't really have anything in English!

But once you've sat down it's really friendly (and fast) and the food's great. It's also CHEAP!! When I went with my other half, we had a range of mezze (which filled me up completely) and a couple of rounds of tea for about 4JOD, which - frankly - is fantastic... Much better than heading to the overpriced tourist restaurants dotted around the place.

Highlight has to be the owner who sits at the entrance on a high stool with the cash register in front of him, smoking a shisha pipe and welcoming all the locals.

Thoroughly recommended.
