    Houston's: American food

    by xaver Written Jan 7, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We came in this area because we were looking form an irish pub, which is now closed or moved somewhere else as we did not find it and nobody knew about it.
    We found this american restaurant and decided to try. Food was okey: hamburgers, sandwiches, burritos: nothing to die for but we were tired and those stuffs plus beer was everything we needed.
    We paid about 20€ each and it was fair as beer here is more expensive.

    Bonita Restaurant: Amazing Spanish food

    by Zeespot Written Oct 27, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bonita Restaurant – fine dining in casual comfort

    Step into Bonita’s restaurant, and enter the family dining room of a warm and comfortable Spanish casa. Cozy and intimate, with a homey fireplace and charming wait staff, you soon forget where you are…and, possibly, when you are. The quality of the food quickly snaps you back to reality, however – this is no humble campesino’s kitchen! Bonita’s top-notch Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine would be at home in the most posh restaurant, and is all the more striking set within Bonita’s casual, friendly and charming atmosphere.
    The elegant décor also encloses a fundamental, yet fitting, contrast. Arrayed above the charming decorative flatware and Spanish designs are rich dark ceiling beams made of wood taken from the Ottoman Hejaz Railway. Spanning Syria, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia in the early 1900s, the historic beams literally frame Bonita in Jordan’s past.
    Spanish ‘body’ with Jordanian ‘bones’; fine dining with personable casualness;…Bonita Restaurant is a truly unique study in contrasts. Like its delicious paella, Bonita’s varied ingredients must be savored together, not described piecemeal. Come visit us, and sample the Bonita dining experience!

    Favorite Dish: A selcetion of authentic Spanish Tapas for starter followed by Seafood Paella

    The Grand Restaurant: Main Restaurant of the Grand Palace Hotel

    by machomikemd Written Aug 31, 2013

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Grand Restaurant is the only restaurant of the 4 star Grand Palace Hotel, while the next Door 5 Star Regency Palace Hotel has four restaurants. The Grand Restaurant serves complimentary breakfast buffet to guests from 6:00 am to 10:00 am and then ala carte meals for lunch, if you are on a group package tour,like us, they also serve Dinner Buffet and the meals here are mainly middle eastern and are halal. Dinner Buffet starts at 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm everyday.

    Favorite Dish: they have just a small variety of mainly middle eastern meals for breakfast and dinner, like assorted Mezze, pita bread, hummus, falafel, long grain rice, meat products (except pork) and some international food offering like noodles.

    the meals are so so but if you are really hungry, then you will get full quickly.

    found all over Jordan: Pita Jordan (Pita Bread with grilled feta cheese)

    by machomikemd Written Aug 30, 2013

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    although most Jordanian food is similar to other arabic and middle eastern foods, they also have some local specialties and one of these delicious local delicacy is the Jordanian Pita, which can be found everywhere (restaurants, tourist shops with restaurants, outdoor stalls and more). Jordanian Pita is the generic pita bread which is common around the mediterrenean and middle east but the pita bread is then grilled with feta cheese and pesto and the result is a savory dish that you can eat by itself as a meal or as a snack!

    price of a jordanian pita is JD 2 to 3, depending on the area you bought it from.

    Favorite Dish: Jordanian Pita Bread with feta cheese and pesto and grilled in an local oven is wonderful!

  • Centro: Wide variety of dishes

    by hongkong88 Updated Oct 3, 2012

    Had a business dinner there recently. We ate in the open air terrace and it was very pleasant. Our group started out with appetizer platters with fish, squid, veggies and various friend goodies. Everything was very good with various dipping sauces on the side. I had the Schnitzel with a side of french fries and it was very good. The dish can be very dry if not done right but mine was tasty. Other guests had chicken parmesan (the comment was it could have used more sauce), salmon (universal good reviews) and steak which I believe is why most people eat there. Another business companion said his steak was first rate. I topped it all off with good chocolate ice cream and others had the chocolate thunder and liked it. The place also had tables inside with a very nice area with lots of dark wood looking a bit like a high end bar/club.

    Favorite Dish: I would try the chicken parmesan if I ever get back.

    Beit Sitti: Cook your own Jordanian 4 course meal

    by onfoot Updated Aug 28, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is this great place in Amman that offers both locals and tourists with cooking classes. Call them and reserve a seat and go learn how to make 4 different dishes.
    The place is called "Beit Sitti" which means my grandmother's house.
    Here you get to cook your meal, eat it with a great view to the Citadel and down town Amman and meet other people.
    A new concept in Amman ... no competition yet!

    Favorite Dish: You can pre-request what you want to cook,
    Koosa mahshi is my favorite ... or stuffed Zuccini ....
    You will of course have to learn how to make Hummous, so don't miss out on that

    Citron Cafe: Don't miss the greatest argeeleh in town

    by myasin99 Written Feb 25, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ambiance is very relaxing yet energetic, the music is great it is all about via con dais and cesaria evora along with some buddah bar mixes. The Valet parking is very helpful. I loved the decoration of the restaurant it has glass walls with engravings of the Citron flower as well the flower is carved in the wooden AC outlets which i found very interesting and innovative. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

    Favorite Dish: The tuna salad, grilled Hammour, followed by the American apple pie enjoyed while smoking an the Citron Special Argeelah

    WARD Restaurant: BIG & BEAUTIFUL!

    by ViajesdelMundo Updated Dec 14, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A new Arabic/Lebanese restaurant, where my friends who live in Amman took me for dinner. They said they had been wanting to try it. I think it was a bit more expensive than they expected, but it is quite lavish in decor, the waiters were all attentive and very courteous and helpful with a highchair for my girlfriend' 2-year old.

    My friends ordered, and it was similar to what my tour group had been having in the hotel, but tastier and you could order some dishes hotter or milder.

    They enjoyed it and the reviews I've read are good, but only being in Amman briefly and on a group tour, I only have hotels for the most part to compare the food with.

    There is a kids play area and eating outside; NO delivery service.

    Favorite Dish: As everywhere in the area, the HUMUUS was divine!! and lots of hot fresh flat bread kept coming as we ate.

    KEBABS very tasty, both meat and chicken.

    Hashem: cheap restaurant or snackbar Hashem restuarant

    by Robin020 Updated Nov 28, 2011

    Is suppose to be very cheap one
    The food looks very fresh, flavoursome and extremely cheap: you will have to spend no more than 3-4 dinars per person for a whole meal, drinks included.
    The place is most of the time packed with locals as well as expats and tourists, it opens late during the night and it famously counts the Royal Family amongst its patrons.

    1 Falafel Sandwish is about 0.30 Dinar

  • Romero Restaurant: Mediocre Italian in Amman

    by hongkong88 Written Oct 2, 2011

    I was really looking forward to having some good Italian food in Amman for a change of pace. Unfortunately this place didn't come through. The salad was I guess an antipasto and while it was good enough it wasn't antipasto. The appetizer was the highlight. It was one large spinach ravioli and some linguini with cream sauce. That was very good. My entree was if I recall correctly Chicken Milano which was two large breaded chicken fillets. They were very thin and very dry. I squeezed by whole half lemon on them to no effect. It was like eating some breading. The accompanying risotto and veggie were OK. Service is slow. My request for another beverage was ignored twice.

    Favorite Dish: The appetizer, spinach ravioli and linguini.
