A convenient eat-in or take-away restaurant right in the center of Wadi Musa, with a cheerful, bright, and clean interior. Service was very good, and the portions of food were incredible given the price!

Very tasty food - and loads of it! It's always a good recommendation to see local people dining - and here there were lots. The food did not disappoint.

You can have a takeaway shawarma for 1.50D, and extraordinarily good it is too. The in-restaurant one will set you back about 7.00D but has every jordanian dip and some flafals as well as a pile of chips!

We enjoyed the grilled meat at Al Arabi, especially the Shawarma Arabia mixed dish was to die for. Only non-alcoholic beer available. Prices very moderate. Parking not too hard to find in the side streets.

We ate here the one night we were in Wadi Musa. We weren't too hungry as we had had a snack at The Cave Bar earlier in the evening. I had the grilled lamb and it was excellent.

If you are looking for tasty food, a relaxed atmosphere, and reasonable prices, this is a great option. Meat was perfectly grilled (nicely grilled but moist). Prices were not outrageous and service was good. We especially enjoyed the falafel and kebab. The menu provided a good variety of dishes, including sandwiches/shwarma for the more budget conscious.

In several days in Petra, there was always a line of locals waiting for shwarma at this restaurant. Rarely did I see a tourist. Price for a roll (called a sandwich) is 1.5 or 3JD for small/big. They serve other sandwiches as well like falafel and assorted drinks like tea, coffee and juices. More a cafe than a restaurant, this... More
