Admittedly we dined early by Jordanian standards at 7.30pm, but there were no other diners, even when we left two hours later. The staff appeared surprised to see us and we felt that we were an inconvenience. The waiter urged us to take the set menu for 20JD including taxes and talked us out of ordering the dishes we wanted... More

Food was good, but we felt robbed when we walked out of there. As this restaurant was mentioned in the Lonely Planet, we decided to give it a go. Once there, we got the menu and noticed that the prices are pretty acceptable for a couple traveling with a budget. They even had local beer. We noticed (and talked) about... More

When you enter the restaurant, you think it's an expensive fine-dining restaurant. However, the prices are certainly low for what you get. Especially the mezzes were great: we had humus, baba ganoush. Bread is baked freshly and comes right out of the oven. Atmosphere is very nice and the toilets were simply beautiful. One point of critique: we didn't like... More
