This looks like a coffee house, is extremely comfortable atmosphere, but the meals, desert, and specialty drinks make this one of the best restaurants in the city. The ginger milk with honey is a new favorite! Good environment for family too!

definitely a place to go in Aqaba. We spent two nights there. The food was delicious, especially the fish steak. The menu is a mix out of mexican, jordan and italian food --> for everybody something. The service was really friendly and considerate.
