Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I can see why this place is no.1 on TripAdvisor in Petra. The staff and welcoming. The food is great. The seafront view is lovely and there is parking nearby. We visited for dinner one evening and it was a highlight of our visit to...Lesvos. We shared a spicy feta dip to start which was a huge portion. Then we had a moussaka (best I've had in a long time and I've tried lots!) and a seafood pasta, also really good. We had the local wine and bottled water. The bill was very reasonable and the service was great throughout. They brought us a complimentary glass of wine each at the end of the meal as the restaurant was busy and they said we'd had a delay with our meal but we hadn't noticed and enjoyed the leisurely pace. We accepted the wine but left an extra tip to show our appreciation. Would recommend a visit and they are deserving of their top place!More

For me this is THE best bar/restaurant in Petra. Location excellent, sunbeds (free of charge) are nice and comfy. Food is made fresh and is tasty and excellent. You are served by Panos and Alex who are so friendly and welcoming and they work so...hard. Atmosphere is friendly and polite. Definitely recommended without a doubt. This is our second visit in consecutive years and will definitely return. Thanks 👍 to Panos and Alex for making us so welcome. Cheers 🍻 guys you are both stars.More

Can't fault this place, it's beachfront which isn't for everyone but we decided to go there on our last night. Friendly staff without being pushy & food was delicious. Mushroom Provencal was amazing & I kept some back to eat with my main, it was...so good. Shame we had to go home as we'd have definitely returned here. Just under £40 for 2 starters, 2 mains & litre of wine so very reasonable.More

Best restaurant in town! Panos, Alex and young George run service on top level and are always in for a joke, the kitchen crew prepares fantastic food. Those are people I would steel horses with. Feels connected in an instant without any we-want-your-money vibe…their welcoming...friendliness is one of a kind. If it’s busy you might need a bit of patience. If you are super hungry order a starter, they come super fast. The grilled feta with sesame and honey or the local grilled hard cheese were our favourites. The food, view, friendly service and the prices are outstanding. We ate at almost every restaurant in Petra and the Lucky Horseshoe is the best place you can go to. Also a day at their beach with free sunbeds, free WiFi and the option to get drinks and food served is great. Watch the sunset with a glass of wine from the first row with a glass of their white housewine and dream away. This place added awesome memories to our time in Petra! We will be back!More

The best beach restaurant in Petra. Their pizza’s are really delicious. Staffs are very friendly and kind. Whenever we visit Petra we prefer to eat at Lucky Horse.

We got a nice table! The food was good and the waiter was nice. But we waited so long for our food - around an hour and a half. Later in the evening I found out that there was only two people in the kitchen....If you wanna eat there, I would recommend you not to be there in the prime time. 3,5 / 5 - standardMore

We had some lovely meals in Petra but the Lucky Horseshoe was the only one we visited twice. Very friendly service and great food. Always a busy place which is always a good sign.

When we first past the restaurant was full which is slays a good sign. We returned after a quick drink to secure the only available table. The mousaka was superb. As was the beef and tomato stew. The other members of our party shared a...special pizza that they said was excellent. Service throughout was excellent. A thoroughly enjoyable meal.More
