My husband and I went to this restaurant not once but twice in our short time at Petra because the food is amazing and prices are reasonable. We highly recommend the hummus (BEST in Jordan), warm pita bread, and Chicken soup. We visited Petra in...the winter so the warm bread/soup was much appreciated :)More

It’s a really cool restaurant near Petra. We chose it because it was near to our hotel (movenpick) and it didn’t disappoint at all. All the food is delicious and the typical dessert (konafa) from Jordan its amazing🤩. I do recommend for lunch or dinner,...after visiting Petra. There ir also a very refreshing drink of lemon with mint that I also recommend. Saludos a Abraham 😊More

We had a wonderful time at Mom’s recipe restaurant. Thanks to Hisham and his staff for their friendly welcome. We came twice during our stay to Petra and had opportunity to taste typical Jordanian dishes in a local atmosphere and decorations. It made us feel...as we were eating in a Bedouin tent, music included ! The food was excellent and not expensive. I highly recommend this restaurant.More

I think it's preferred specifically in the high season. Honestly my own experiment was without any reservation and we found a table very easily, the floor is large and the staff are helpful.

I don't recall exactly but it was not what I'd call expensive- fair price, good value for an excellent meal. Good idea to check their web site.

About 15 USD a person. Varies based on dish ordered. Large helpings, I think we split a dish when there.
