Where to dine while in Petra

Nabatean Castle combines signature dining with a spectacular mountain setting. The hotel’s Al Madafa main dining room and Al Nadeem Bar, each with its own terrace, invite you to relax and enjoy a breath-taking view overlooking the famed Mount Aroun. In-room dining is available until midnight, but for an atmospheric setting to explore local cuisine, Jordanian specialities and international choices, Al Madafa is the main gathering space. Engaging cooking counters add personality to the sumptuous buffets, while an à la carte menu is available for lunch.

As advised by government health authorities, food and drinks purchased outside the hotel should not be brought into the hotel premises unless approved in advance by the hotel.
