This place is close to Petra which means they are conveniently located so it feels they are lazy about the food quality. Given the costs of the meal I would recommend to go up further into the town a bit (500 metres) and try food at the main roundabout restaurants where you'll find beautiful traditional dishes and good service.

We chose this restaurant as it was near to our hotel. It was not busy but the service was extremely slow. We waited 45 min for our food to arrive and even then only half of us got our meal. Another 15 min later the rest of the food arrived and when it did, it was stone cold, dry and... More

Because of good reviews on TA we had dinner at Red Cave.... well we shouldn t have. What is there to like there? The decor inside looks ok but we had dinner on the terrace with its glaring white neon bulbs and plastic decor! Food was particular untasty = no flavor at all! A blind test should be carried out....

The Red Cave restaurant is the perfect place to stop for a cold beverage after a long day walking in Petra. We didn't eat there just had drinks but the food that people ordered looked quite good.

We read the recommendation about this restaurant in the Lonely Planet guidebook. It’s a short walk from the entrance gate to Petra, so after a long day walking around the Petra sights we thought this would be a great place to stop off for dinner. From first impressions, the place looks impressive. We ordered two traditional Bedouin dishes (Sawani Badawaiah... More

Read praises in Lonely Planet, but were dissapointed. Bland food, not even salty enough. Even service was not the best. We had better food in the upper part of town where we even got complimentary tea and cakes.

We ordered traditional Bedouin dishes which were very tasty. The service was excellent and we were offered complimentary mint tea at the end! It was quite quiet on a Wednesday evening which was surprising given how good the restaurant was.
