Al Wadi makes great local food, has pleasant and polite service and kindly offered us some small free treats. We visited in March 2019 I believe with time their place just remains level headed service provider. Safe choice for tourists who look for nice dinner...place for medium price. Special thanks for Abo Mostafa for attentive serviceMore

The bread they serve is freshly baked and tastes amazing. Next to that you have to know that this is a restaurant for tourists so it's not the best food of Jordan. I expected better food based on the current rating.

Nice place. Good atmosphere, friendly staff. Food was good, nice selection. Fresh warm bread with your hummus 👌🏻 The veggie options were warm, not hot. But this seems to be the case in all places we ate. The food was cheap too.

I like the atmosphere. Its jordanian. Arabic music. Only here you get the warm bread called Tamiz. Sabri is a friend of mine.

Honestly, you wont need a reservation. The restaurant is large, and we noticed that they have a second floor as we were leaving. If you want to make a reservation, though, call them.
