The dishes were excellent and well furnished. The staff was really friendly, they offered us hummus and tea on the house. For a big meal with drink, the bill was really cheap. I can only recommend this place :)

My friend and I were recommended this place by the manager/owner of our hotel (Darna Village). I wanted to go somewhere closer by the beach but he said that the food was very expensive. We then took a taxi to go to Aqaba city center and it worth the ride (we were staying further down on the south beach). His... More

We dined here twice during our 10-days stay near Aqaba. Always full of both local people and foreigners this place has very good quality for reasonable prices. Try shish-kebab, apetizers plate, and salads. Service is superb. Balcony has a wonderful view.

This is an absolute must. Incredible food and super cheap... like 15JOD for a huge meal for 2. Full of locals as well which also says something good about the place. Sit on the balcony overlooking the street upstairs. Recommend the lamb chops and babaganoush (sorry for the spelling)! Enjoy

Just has a great lunch here. Full of locals (always a good sign). We had some mezze to start and then I had a shish kebab and the husband a kofta with tahini sauce. Both were very tasty and the husband was very pleased with what was effectively a yummy meat pancake combined with chips and sauce. Staff very friendly.... More

The food is delicious and looks fresh. Out in a reasonable time. The price is fair. Diners always get a plate of salads, dessert and coffee on the house and ask to give a tip accordingly.
