“Good prices, drinks, and great tastes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We ate here several times during our stay in Wadi Mousa. It is just a minute or two walk from the exit from Petra and makes for a great snack or meal stop after a day of hiking around. The prices are reasonable and the food is lovely - freshly prepared and made simply but tastily. The food is mostly Jordanian, but there is a large variety of salads, meat and chicken, and also vegetarian options. The manager/owner, Ashley (she's Jordanian), checks in to make sure everything is good and speaks excellent English with a sweet accent. One other positive is that they have alcohol - many of the restaurants do not, and they offer a decent variety of simple mixed drinks, beer, and wine. Highly recommended!

“An cozy and nice restaurant with impressive local food and the back yard "Petra"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Only 5 min walk to marvelous Petra, delicious local food with reasonable price. Lamb mansuf and shish kebab is must-try. Remember to talk to beautiful Ashley and handsome Ibrahim, easy-going people, who will give you unforgettable service and chi-lax you after a long day hiking in Petra.

“Good food...free Wifi”

Pretty good chicken dishes. The wifi is good and it's really relaxing to just kick back and take a break here after exploring Petra.

“great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

I stopped by this restaurant and found it delightful in many ways. First, the location is exceptional, on the strip leading to the gate to the archeological park which makes it a great stop on the way to/from the archeological site of Petra. They serve very tasty food for very reasonable prices in a cozy setting(lots of space inside as well as a nice terrace facing the main street). The service was good and there's an added plus for westerners who like to chill out after a long hot day in Petra-they serve ice cold local beer(the only restaurant on the strip where you can get a beer). Also the owner, Mr. Ibrahim, was great fun and very helpful.
I definitely recommend this place to any normal human being.
Thumbs up!
