My husband and I and a couple we are friend with were visiting Petra for the day. We spent all day in Petra but also wanted to do Petra by Night (highly recommended!) but had an hour and a half to kill. The Cave Bar is right outside the entrance to Petra so it was very convenient. The drinks were very reasonably priced by US standards and our waiter Zead was attentive and kind. We ended up returning after Petra by Night for food, which was also very good. The place is small but it’s set up well and it’s a very interesting atmosphere. They had a man playing lovely music while we were there too. Overall it’s a great spot with a cool atmosphere, and I’d definitely return if we were ever back in Jordan.

We made a few visits to this place during our stay in Petra . Very cosy place , great cocktails and food was delicious . Our waiter Zaed was very good ,

It’s a perfect place to get a drink after hours of walking round Petra.

Not to be missed .

The Cave bar is the nearest bar to the main Petra site, so after a good day walking around the site I had earnt a cool beer in this tourist trap. There is seating outside, but the main atmosphere is inside the ‘Cave’

I wish I could give this place a better review but I visited just after opening and the service was chaos. There were servers but we were 3 women alone and could not get them to take our order. Waited 20 mins at the bar then, gave the order and they finally brought my mojito.
Asked for the bill several times in 30 minutes and gave up to pay again at the bar. My friends were out the door at 7.50JD each but somehow mine became 9JD. Come on guys, I protested and was told “tax and service”. I don’t appreciate that what could have been a nice memory after a grueling day at Petra is now a bad experience.
