The only place that was able to provide for us, once Ramadan had started. Very helpful staff and really good food. What we needed we were provided with in coffee mugs and that made us so happy. Be sure to stop here and enjoy the quaint ambience and service.

We have stayed a couple of nights at the hotel and had good breakfast here and also eaten here our last two dinners which was very good also. The atmosphere is really nice here, staff wonderful so I recommend this place highly. Close to the all interesting places in Madaba so it is good relaxing here too after all walking.

Best restaurant in Madaba - my friends and I went back there 3 nights running! The owner is friendly and chatty, and it seems to be a local place to hang out - all three nights, the same group of guys were sitting in the corner, having feasts of meze-type dishes and J&B whisky! We all had the Hoset chicken... More

Some friends and I briefly ditched a group tour to grab some very fast milkshakes and smoothies here after visiting the mosaic map. Great choice! They were delicious and affordable... surprisingly so for a touristic destination.
