In the very heart and soul of Madaba, a magical 20th century house was created next to the famed church that houses the legendary mosaic map of the Holy Land. Haret Jdoudna first came to life when Romero Groups’ Zaid Goussous teamed up with Ibrahim and Waddah Jumean. They had a vision… to transform a historical property into a magical village of restaurants, coffee shops and a traditional Jordanian Souk and Crafts Market.
From the moment it came to life, Haret Jdoudna was linked to Madaba, as was Madaba associated with Haret Jdoudna. Until our present day, it lives on to be a place where time seizes to exist, bringing together the past, present and future of an ancient city, Madaba. It is perceived as a well-known landmark and one of the best restaurants in Jordan.
The ancient house has live music and great Mediterranean cuisine that make all the ride from Amman very much worth it. Very recommended for tourists and Jordanians. Some may find it a bit pricey,but I think you get what you’re paying for.
In addition to the delicious food factor, the drive from Amman to Madaba is simply breath taking.
I recommend you try it.
