We ate a couple of times at the Cave Bar located right next to the entrance to Petra and right next door to the Crowne Plaza (owned by them, too). Although it was a little on the expensive side (compared to other restaurants in Wadi Musa) when was the last time you had dinner in a 2,000 year old Nabatean Tomb?
Mezze! All that food was just for the two of us.
They serve great mezze (appetizers with a variety of salads, hummus, tabbouleh, baba ganoush, olives, etc.) and lemon juice (not exactly lemonade – more like biting into a lemon). Since the restaurant is run by the Crowne Plaza we felt safe eating fresh salads and ice there. We had no problems and ate there 3 times. The food was safe and delicious!
Outdoor seating at the Cave Bar, located in a 2000 year old Nabatean Tomb.
You can choose to eat indoors or outside, which is shaded, since it’s in the little side . Eating outside on a warm starry night in such a perfect location was an awesome way to cap off a great day spent exploring the amazing ruins of Petra.
