Why just order dinner? Cook your own! We went as a group to the upstairs area, all set up for a cooking class. There were 13 of us. The restaurant chef and his father got us all gathered at a giant table, chopping up vegetables, squeezing lemons, stirring lentil soup and having a good time. They really did a lot... More

A very large facility, multi level, many spacious rooms that is a favorite of bus groups and locals as well. A very large meze table to start with varied and excellent choices and simply amazing hummus and a spicy chili to accompany it if you are a fan of "hot stuff"! After filling yourself with the great appetizers, if there... More

We went there for lunch, the restaurant offers a set buffet of mostly Arab food. The falafel and few of the salads were good and fresh. The main dishes were poor. Nice setting

We had a set menu here after a day in Petra. It was a no hangups kind of place with rustic decorations. It wasn't too busy on A Monday night. The appetizers were okay - the hummus and baba ghanouch were the best . The fattoush was missing dressing. The Sinia Dajaj ( Tomato with chicken) was excellent. The Kofta... More

Our guide arrange dinner here our last night in Jordan. It was a great meal & very typical Jordanian fare & lots of food. I liked the vegetables & salads very fresh. The main course was mutton with a white gravy they call Yogurt. A little heavy for me but everyone seemed to enjoy.

They provide the set menu, salad dishes are delicious and fresh, main courses taste good. It's not a bad choice if you will stay in Petra for more than 1 night.
