Average but acceptable food. Like everywhere else in Wadi Musa expensive for what you get. Staff could not be bothered to bring the bill to the table despite the few customers

Attended to all of our needs very well. As a Jordanian, the food is fairly good and valued well, can't go wrong when in Petra.

If you are looking for haute cuisine then this is not the right place, but if you just want to grab a burger or a snack, it serves the purpose. We went in the evening and chose the Jordan Mezze plate of hummus etc. Delicious....More
