After spending a few hours wandering around the mosaic locations of Madaba I was in need of some good food and found it in this lovely restaurant. I had the local Madaba chicken special and was thoroughly delighted - it was a tasty treat. My friend had the mixed grill, which was also mouth watering. if you are hungry -... More

We decided to try this place out mainly because of the seating arrangements with the view overlooking the church and whilst the staff were very friendly the meal was terrible. The mixed grill was so dry, the chips soggy and the chicken and cheese looked slightly undercooked. It was such a shame and I feel terrible giving such a bad... More

Boring food and poor presentation and very small portions. Maybe we didn't choose well but small portions on all our orders made it poor value.

Great food, attentive service, well spoken English, cozy atmosphere, I definitely recommend this place for visitors to Madaba. Lentil soup was a little different than the traditional lentil soup in Jordan, very good nonetheless. Grilled mix with greek salad was a rewarding choice. You can get the mint lemonade without sugar or with little sugar (this is my recommendation), it... More

The owner laid on a spread of lovely hummus and other filling appetisers, followed by a VERY filling mixed grill, and a soft drink. For 13 JD. Jordan is an expensive place to visit but I let feeling that I'd got good value and very high quality service

Bawabit is located across the street from Saint George's church, they charge higher than average prices. We ordered a few appetizers, salad and coffee. All was enjoyable, unfortunately overpriced.

You should go here for a true jordanian food, they will keep bringing starters for an hour and then in the end meat so be ready to enjoy a lot veggie food, but food is really good. Nice environment as well.

The staff were extremely welcoming and attentive. Excellent food at a very reasonable price. As usual in Jordan, if you have alcohol it bumps up the price considerably. The fish was delicious and the meat eaters were happy with their meals. Madaba Chicken is recommended. It needs a bit of a makeover but with the tourists trade as it is,... More
