The service in this restaurant was great. Although they never want you to leave, they wanna keep on feeding you! Lol we got complimentary dessert and coffee. Very casual spot so don’t expect anything fancy. No alcohol. Small menu

The best restaurant we found on our 10day stay in Jordan! Good staff and great food! Tip: Instead of ordering one dish per person, order some Main dishes and several appetizers and make a tapasmeal out of it! Tip2: Do order fresh juice. Mr Juiceman...More
