Stopped here for drinks. Friendly service, prices good and food choice on the menu look good too. Located on the main road but interesting to people watch.

Very nice restaurant with friendly and attentive staff. Since it is situated at the main street it is easy to find but not quiet. The food was delicious.

Aqaba is full of resorts, and most people don't leave the hotel! But if you want to head out for an authentic meal, somewhere that's really reasonable, with excellent service then Ali Baba's is the place. We only had 2 night in Aqaba, and loved it there so much we did dinner both nights! Fresh catch seafood definitely recommended!

A local tour operator booked for us a dinner in this restaurant. Among several other we visited during our 10 days stay in Jordan, this place offered really good food, out of ordinary sish kebab and humus said. Worth paying a visit. Well located, in very center of the city.

The food and service were great - we had lamb cutlets, mansaf, shwarma, makluba (great rice), and ice cream (too sweet). The price was too high but we really enjoyed the food.
