So much have changed at this classy place, the menu, the ambience, the serving! I used to dine here when I visit Aqaba (but that was 5 years ago), on my most recent visit I was not very pleased of how this place was turned around, the food was still good and tasty but I didn't feel the authentic classy...

Shown to our table, given menus and then ignored for 20 minutes. Eventually I was able to request drinks. Of the list of champagne and sparkling wine, they had none so we immediately left. The prices looked reasonable and the choice of food quite good. What it tastes like we will never know. Views during the day might be good,... More

This place definitely doesn't deserve to have the Royal in front of its name. The service is extremely bad. The waiters have serious attitude problem. The tables aren't properly attended. Don't waste your money and time with this place to get an attitude. The food is moderate nothing special. The only remarkable thing is the scenery.

Place is old and grubby, stuff not really interested in anyone, took 20 minutes just to get a drink and the place was empty. Menu was very poor, hardly any. Italian dishes on it except pasta and pizza. We just settled for drinks in the end as nothing on the menu inspired us. It has the atmosphere of a canteen... More

Went to the Yacht Club after boating, the ambiance was perfect, the manager was attentive, and wine selection superb. We have Shashimi and sushi plater and the meal was enjoyable.

Not bad restaurant with good value for money at a superb location right next to the marina giving you the feeling of a Mediterranean atmosphere. Menu wise Italian touch with seafood. The food quality varies and this is their great challenge and that's why I give four out of five. The only place that you can see some foreigners apart... More
