One of the most appreciated local restaurants with excellent local food, such as mezze and various chicken and lamb dishes. But the choice for vegetarians is limited, and the service is quite fast-food oriented. We we're seated in the corridor leading to another restaurant room, so we also had the passage of customers - fortunately not very many that night!... More

The food was delicious. The price was fair, we got two meals, tea and baclava for 31JD. They had free wifi too, which allowed us to send family photos of beautiful Petra. Would recommend.

The food seemed authentic and was enjoyable. The mezze was lovely and the hummus in particular was great. The staff were pleasant and attentive. It's literally a stones throw from the entrance to Petra. I'd quite happily go back at some point. Meal for 2 including drinks was 30JD.

A great experience. The Red Cave serves traditional Jordan cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. Helpful staff and delicious food. Sitting outside is ok but you have to go inside. This restaurant should be called the "Tardis". The room goes on and on with a function room at the back. The facilities were spotless. More importantly the food really is lovely... More

We had a dinner at Red Cave and seated outside. Starters were flavorful but my main dish (lamp minced meat balls in tahini and yogurt sauce served with rice) had very limited taste. The shish tawook was again average. We've been offered a complimentary selection of baklava in the end which were very good. The waiter was friendly and guided... More
