We had a tasty rice dish made with chicken, aubergines and potatoes. Dessert was good too - a bread and butter pudding with spices, fruit and nuts, and they do a nice mint lemon drink (not too sweet). Prices are reasonable and staff are friendly.

Food is really quite good and varied. The lamb,, fish and chicken dishes among the best. Plenty also for vegetarians too. Very friendly service, nice surroundings. One of the best restaurants in two days in this part of Jordan

Delicious, authentic food served quickly with a nice view of the hills and just a short walk from Petra. Lovely atmosphere, clean restrooms and great service. I had the “Bedouin Gallayah” with lamb - it wasn’t hot or overly spicy (in fact I added a...More
