Nabataean Tent Restaurant

Buffet in The Ancient City

With simple Jordanian dishes and one or two international favourites, this casual restaurant occupies a lovely spot under blue-flowering jacaranda trees (they flower in May). The proprietors rustle up a generous packed lunch with bread, cheese, cucumber, falafel, yoghurt and cake for a bargain JD7; it can be eaten on the spot with a Turkish coffee if you wish.
