I do recommend this place. Portions are generous, usually one is ok for 2. We had mexican chicken which was delicious. Also tried local alcohol Arak.

Nice but nothing more. The prices on the menu and on my addition weren’t exactly the same (I paid a little more). Disappointed.

Whilst visiting Madaba I will strongly recommend to stop for lunch in this place! It’s steps away from the Madaba Mosaic and the quality/ price is really good. We really enjoyed the meal and also the natural juices.

We stopped in for lunch and then went back for dinner. Both times we enjoyed good food and excellent service. I tried the lemon drink with mint in numerous places in Jordan. I thought this was the best. Last, but by no means least, this...place makes ice coffee American style (not slush), with real ice cubes.More

This is a no-frills cafe serving fast food at the city centre of Madaba. Ayola is right opposite the St George's Church. The menu offers the typical fare like burgers, kebab and subs. The hummus and falafel is our favorite. Everything is freshly prepared. Price...is reasonable but perhaps a bit high in local standard.More

Very convenient location opposite the St George Orthodox Church (with the famous mosaic map). Food is tasty and comes in generous portions. Price is affordable. I like the refreshing lemon and mint drink.

It's an ok restaurant. They serve alcohol if you're dying for a glass of wine or a beer but expect no quality. Food is ok. Nothing to write home about but not bad either. Service is nice and genuine. Avoid spaghetti. If you're looking for...Italian food this is not the place to try it and it's no one's fault but your own {and mine} if you ask for spaghetti in these kind of restaurants thinking you are in Rome. They serve fast food stuff which is possibly a good call along with local stuff. Looks like a tourist trap to me. but you don't get much choice in madabaMore

The restaurant is just across the road from St. George church. Very interesting and large interior. Windmills provide a nice cool inside. Delicious food for reasonable prices. I've got the Kubba and were great.

Good value for a few simple dishes. Great for the price and nice enough ambience. We went a few times while in Madaba since it ticked all the boxes. Haloumi plate was good!
