Forget hamburger, pizza and pasta! Try the chicken liver, the hummus, the tabbouleh, the kofta with tahini. Thanks for the tea in the end.

Enjoyed a good meal- cold mezes, mixed grill and grilled seafood- too much for two. Nice outdoor area and fun for people watching. Attentive staff.

We had dinner here on our last night in Aqaba. It was the perfect experience. The seafood platter and mixed grill we shared were excellent. The seafood was cooked to perfection, fresh and tasty. The mixed grill was good too, and served on a box...More

Very good food, atmosphere, prices. Staff is very, very friendly. Always gives tea or coffee on the house, just like a sign of a warm welcoming.
