This restaurant was recommended by one of our guide books. It was horrid. I was sick for two days, glad I brought Immodium, because I needed it.

The food was okay but not exceptional, contrary to the food we had in many other places. The public were all tourists and the waiters were somewhat offhand.

Really good food, the people working there are really nice but the ambiance is a bit blah and sterile

This restaurant was down the hill from our hotel and had decent reviews. We were initially seated in the covered outside area, but due to secondhand smoke exposure, we opted to sit inside. The waiter made helpful recommendations on our menu choices, and we stuck...to the Jordanian options. It wasn't a particularly memorable meal, but portions are large, so we were quite full after a long day of hiking.More

Was a little unsure following the previous bad review, but I definitely do not agree. Had a lovely evening meal. Choose a couple of main a from the Bedouin options and probably one of the best meals I've had since arriving in Jordan. All waiters...were really friendly and checked all was ok and general service was excellent. Would highly recommend stopping here for food.More

Had a terrible experience! The chicken on our wraps were inedible! Tasted like old chicken that had been reheated one too many times. But the aftermath was even worse. It sat in our throats for the rest of the day - acidic pineapple juice didn’t...even help. Regretted eating here, as they aren’t cheap either. Don’t know what all the fuss is about.More

I had a good experience here, tasty food and kind service. You can have traditional food but also delicious tea! Recommended

We had lunch here consisting of some really good, fresh mezze (including hot hot hot Turkish salad) and mint and lemon juice to drink. We thought the lunch was so good that we came back for more in the evening and the mains were equally...good (with alcohol-free beer). Really nice friendly waiters and some complimentary yummy moist coconut cake to finish. Highly recommended!More

My friend and I shared the cheese pastries and the chicken pieces with chips. The food was excellent and we got a complimentary coconut cake for dessert!
