“Great buffet choice in Petra”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

If you are looking for a great value in a very convenient location - this is the place for you! For a fixed price (10 dinar) you get a very nice buffet that includes salads, breads, fish and meats. All in all a very good choice

“Set menu average and Westernised”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The set menu was a great assortment of mezzes to start, with flatbread which was great. The main was disappointing, a slab of chicken which was tasty and a mountain of chips but it was just so western. Why come to petravfor chicken and chips!? No dessert was available, they didn't have any. Beer was expensive, 6 JD pet can. Go somewhere else, this really didn't cut it.

“Great value for great food”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

The food here was amazing for a very low price of 7 Jordanian Dinars for adults with children going free. The food was a buffet featuring hummus, Turkish salad, rice, lentil soup, chicken and lamb kebabs. A particular highlight was the Jordanian wine which was very smooth and comparatively good value. The service was very friendly and we were made to feel at home. Overall this restaurant comes highly recommended by me and my family.

“Best Restaurant! Great service”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

the best meal we had at this restaurant was the maklouba. The service was great. Friendly staff and amazing chef. The local wine " Mount Nebo" was excellent. I highly recommend it for all Petra visitors to stop by this delicious restaurant on the way to or from Petra.

“Nice service”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

This was our dining spot after our day at Petra--it is a small local place with very nice people working there. The food was a typical buffet served to tourists, but it served its' purpose. We enjoyed our meal--and do not have anything else in the are to compare it to, but we were satisfied.
