A roof top terrace with nice seating, staff is friendly and quick to help you. We (2 persons) ate 2 mezzes and both a main course, which is a lot of food! Good came quickly and was reasonably priced. We also drank a local beer, a blond ale. We paid 35 JOD! And got a complementary coffee or tea.

Very friendly staffs, best service we have had so far in Jordan. Food was delicious. Good prices and portion. Excellent location with beautiful view from terrace. Menu could have been more extensive.

My wife and I dined at bawabit on its terrace. The view on the Town's church and mosque after sunset when the towers are lighted was probably the nicest view during our whole stay in Jordan.

The mixed grill was so dry, the chips soggy and the chicken and cheese looked slightly undercooked. It was such a shame and I feel terrible giving such a bad... More
