The outside is packed with local hipsters and if you don't mind all the shisha fumes they have some nice cushioned seating where you can lay back and chill out. We found the food quality to be quite patchy. One of our dishes, a local fried fish, was great, packed full of flavour. The other, a chicken and veg dish... More

My wife and I are Americans. We went to the restaurant with two Israeli friends. At the entrance the host asked me where we were from. I said U.S. and Israel. He said that they do not serve Israelies and refused us entry. I was stunned. This restaurant should be shunned and avoided by people who are appalled by such... More

After ordering drinks we were asked for our origin. After replying we were from Israel and then they humiliated us out with racist curses and shouting. They tried to steal our wallets and spit on us.

We went to that bar a couple of times for some tea. The location is very nice and the staff is very friendly too. They also offer you some Shisha and also different kind of food. In my opinion the food was quite suited to the tourists. A normal meal for 6 - 10 JD is quite pricy compared to... More

Went with my family to check this place as looked for nice and with old cultural touch. Design is super good. They had a singer with old Arabic music people were dancing made the night. But service was super slow. Food takes time to deliver, waiters forget when you ask them something so you need to remind them. Well I... More
