Both the quality and quantity are excellent. Staff are very friendly. A lot of complimentary dishes (appetizers and desert). I fully endorse other reviews stating that it deserves it reputation. It is becoming so popular among tourists that it might ruin down the original atmosphere (which is normal). we were very pleased to have followed tripadvisor's ranking in Aqaba. Unbeatable... More
