We went there given very good scores. We sat at the balcony which had nice view (for the mosque). There were only tourists and this should say to us everything. I mean the place is not bad but if you want to try something truly local, go somewhere else.

We had dinner at Al-Shami and couldnt have been happier with the service and the food. Very fresh and tasty and then a free dessert at the end. Head there during your stay in Aqaba!

Two of us took the kebab plate with hoummous which was OK but not outstanding. The other two had the grilled fish which they seem to enjoy a lot more. It is a correct place to have dinner but not an amazing one.
