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.
Haret Jdoudna represents an authentic village in the city of Madaba, offering everything from amazing traditional food, to entertainment, to local crafts, mosaics and souvenirs. The restaurant is a 19th century house, with historical-like rooms and floors. Its menu is absolutely exquisite, offering local mezza dishes, oven-baked delicacies, and home-made meals. The restaurant also hosts special events with oriental music and entertainment for a lovely night out, or for a relaxing winter afternoon by the fireplace, where you can unwind to old tunes and a hot cup of mint tea.
