Our tour group stop here for lunch. This is the only restaurant inside, so everyone pretty much has to eat here. The buffet was OK; there are basic choices for most people.

Yes, the prices are a bit high, but it's what one would expect in this location. The buffet is typical of hotels in Jordan, with phenomenal salads and some meze, and a selection of hot entrees and small desserts. We were worried that we wouldn't...get a table without a reservation because of all the tour groups, but the host greeted us warmly and seated us under the trees without delay. Our server, who introduced himself as Abood, was wonderfully friendly and attentive, especially given the crowds of tired and cranky tourists. The setting was beautiful and a nice rest after a morning of hiking.More

Our group of 4 enjoyed the buffet lunch at the Basin restaurant. There was a great selection of tasty food. We particularly liked the fish with chilli sauce. We all went back for seconds. Mohanad served us good coffee. Highly recommended.

A restaurant that serves a buffet with a different variety of foods and is better in the presence of alcoholic beverages at an unexpected time. We did not expect them to exist thanks to the Crone Plaza, the owner company. Excellent service by the very friendl Abood and the...other Muhammad ..More

Ambience is superb and every bite is simply delicious. Such a great time at the BASIN. If you have not been and driving down the freeway great spot to pull over for dinner. You will never regret it!
