“Great food, great prices”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel, the Movenpick. The food we had was wonderful and was much more authentic than most of the other food we tried in Petra. The prices were also fantastic. Our waiter was very nice and attentive.

“cheap and great food in Petra”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

There are lots of options to eat in Petra along with several restaurants persuading people to eat in. But Al-Arabi is a class apart. The food is cheap as well as quality is great. The service is good as well. They do not charge more from tourists which mostly happens in touristic places

“Great food for a good price”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This restaurant is a popular place with both locals and tourists.
I had the falafel with a salad and my husband a shoarma plate. You get very large and tasty portions for a good price (regarding the fact that you are in the Petra area during high season).

“Local food at great price”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The place is always full (busy atmosphere, but you can still relax) and we went there twice (plus one stop to pick up falafel sandwiches for the road). It is not fancy, but food is delicious and at great prices. Service was good, too. Try mango juice - it was better than in a 4 star hotel in Aqaba!
