We had a good dinner here on one of our nights at Petra. We had grilled chicken and lamb. Service was good too. Nice atmosphere for dinner with indoor or outdoor seating. It was fun to watch the special dessert being made and also bread being cooked on the patio!

Hisham was an excellent host! We came two nights in a row. The homemade bread with hummus, tabouleh & badenjan was amazing. The maqluba was cooked perfectly, though, I would have preferred chicken thighs. But the pièce de résistance was the mansaf - a must try! Wash this all down with a refreshing lime and mint drink. Awesome!

We arrived well after lunch and we were immediately welcomed and served. Our guide recommended this place. We enjoyed a traditional Jordanian dish, which was hearty, tasty and very good value for money. We enjoyed the food and service so much we came back for another lunch and tried a different dish. Hana served us, answered all our ignorant our questions and we felt very well looked after.

Meet Hesham, the friendly owner of this adorable eatery in Petra. He meets all the guests personally, explains the food and serves a great spread with real warmth. After two meals here, we were invited to sample his special dessert, knaffeh, even though we were booked elsewhere. You cannot miss this dish, its pure joy. Baked cheese with a delightful syrup! Other items that need to be mentioned are the mixed grill and mansaf.
