  • The Levant Restaurant: Almost As Good as Beirut

    by hongkong88 Written Oct 2, 2011

    We had a large party for a business dinner and ate outside on the patio. It was a very good venue and the food was only a half-step below my favorite places in Beirut. We had the full Lebanese appetizer experience followed as always by the entree once you were completely stuffed. Everything was good. The service was also good. But don't be in a hurry. It will probably take you 3 hours to eat.

    Favorite Dish: Hummus. I love hummus.

    Abou ElAbed Al Hakawati: Restaurant & bar with a wonderful concept

    by onfoot Updated Sep 7, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Abou El Abed is the name of the character around which all Lebanese jokes revolves ...
    This is one of the newest restaurants/cafes in Amman ... the owners did an awesome job renovating this old house in Jabal Amman ...
    With three outlets, restaurant-cafe and bar, each with a different character and design, this place can serve multiple types of clients ...
    The service is excellent, although it is a very busy and huge place.
    Sometimes they have live music in the house, call ahead if you are interested.

    Favorite Dish: The menu is mainly Lebanese food ... so generally I love all mazzat, and they have a wide selection ...
    Try the chicken liver ... Fatoush ... Eggplant Fatteh is my favourite for sure.
    If you love sweets try the osmaleyeh cheese cake, you won't regret it

    Has Gloria Jeans written in Arabic on the front and unless you can read Arabic you may pass it by.

    Favorite Dish: A great cappucino for lovers of coffee.

    The Patio: Buffet lunch @ Le Royal

    by 1W1V Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I need to invite people for lunch and I am not sure about what they like and/or I am time limited, I usually bring the guests to a buffet lunch.
    With a bit of time management, you can have your 3 courses meal in 45 min !
    The buffet at The Patio is acceptable but nothing fantastic.
    The location is a bit special as you are in the "chemney" of Hotel Le Royal but personaly I don't find it very exciting. Give you a strange feeling !

    Favorite Dish: Buffet so take what you like !

    Bukhara - Indu: Indian taste in Amman

    by 1W1V Updated Apr 4, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is part of the Intercontinental, unfortunately, it is located at floor -1
    This is one of the only indian restaurant in Amman and therefore it is hard to make any comparison.
    To me, the food is ok but average in taste and quality.
    Nevertheless, it is good for a change.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken curry

    Wild Jordan Café: Great food with a view

    by travellingdan Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is in the Wild Jordan Center of the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature, which is on one of the hillsides of Amman in a modern fancy ecological built building.

    Try to make a reservation for a table near one of the windows or just go out on the balcony to enjoy the view.

    The crowd is mainly young western-style (middle and upper class) Jordanians and internationals who can afford the western-style prices.

    Before or after meal you can also see exibitions about the Jordanian nature, buy handcrafted souvenirs or get information about hiking, camping and nature-concious travelling.

    (by the way: the Center is supported by the German Technical Cooperation Agency, gtz ;-)

    Favorite Dish: I don't remember the food we had but i remember it was amazing (especially if you ate falafel for weeks ;-) and the smoothies are just great. The salads are huge and everything is freshly made.

    by onfoot Updated Mar 1, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place overlooks the down town and the citadel, the place aims at generating income for six natural reserves around Jordan.
    The food is great, although the portions sometimes are small :)
    The menu is generally a fusion of international dishes with some Jordanian herbs or specialities ...

    Favorite Dish: Lemonade with mint drink - Especially in summer
    Lentil soup - in winter

    Reem: Amman's best shawarma

    by MM212 Written Jan 14, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Serving nothing but shawarma with no seating at all, Reem is one of the cheapest and most popular eateries in Amman. Its shawarma is considered the best in the city (though differs in style to Syrian shawarma, for those familiar with it) and the place is rumoured to have been frequented by the country's royalty in disguise. Reem is located at the 2nd Circle in Jebel Amman on the main thoroughfare linking the eight circles. No reservation or anything is necessary, just show up and order your shawarma takeaway, preferably eaten right away!

    Fakhr el Din: Amman's best Lebanese Restaurant

    by MM212 Updated Jan 14, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Housed in an early 20th century villa, near the First Circle, Fakhr el Din is one of the best restaurants in Amman. It serves a menu of perfectly prepared traditional Lebanese mezze and grills, all in a great ambiance with impeccable service. Reservation is an absolute must, particularly in winter when the outdoor seating is unavailable due to cold weather. Fakhr el Din was my most enjoyable dining experience in Amman, so I came here for dinner twice. Note that alcohol is served at Fakhr el Din.

    Zad el Khair: Iraqi specialties in Amman

    by MM212 Written Jan 14, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Among the handful of Iraqi restaurants that opened in Amman following the influx of Iraqis refugees, Zad el Khair is considered the finest. As mezze, the restaurant serves a variety of familiar Syrian/Lebanese dishes along with a few Iraqi ones, but the main dishes contain a larger Iraqi possibilities, including "Qouzi" and "Masgoof". The friendly waiters can help guide the diner through the menu. Alcohol is served.

    Hashem Restaurant: Famous for its falafels

    by MM212 Written Jan 14, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A no-frills place, Hashem Restaurant is a very popular eatery known for its excellent falafels. The basic local restaurant is tucked in an alley of a main street in downtown Amman, with most of its tables scattered around the alley (plus two small indoor dining rooms). The clientele is mostly local who come here for falafel combined with bread, ful (fava bean dish), hummus and salad. All delicious and extremely inexpensive. Hashem Restaurant is a perfect place for lunch when visiting the ancient ruins of downtown Amman.

    Burj al Hamam: Delicious Lebanese at the Intercontinental Hotel

    by MM212 Updated Jan 14, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Burj al Hamam is one of several well-reputed Lebanese restaurants in Amman. It serves excellent and authentic Lebanese food, ranging from the usual array of mezze to a variety of grilled meats. While I would highly recommend dining here and would certainly return, I felt that the restaurant's ambiance was slightly inferior to other restaurants in Amman due to its attachment to a hotel. Don't let this detract you, though, for the food will certainly leave you satisfied. Another advantage is that one could easily get a table without a reservation due to its spacious dining room.

  • Mijana Restaurant/Cafe: Nicest Cafe in Amman

    by samiraknows Written Mar 15, 2010

    I love Mijana and go there with my friends every time I am in Amman. It is the most beautiful place to sit in Jordan. There are not so many places with trees and flowers in the Middle East, go to the garden and have dinner and shisha. I love the Chinese Spaghetti and the pizzas.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza
    Chinese Spaghetti
    Tiramisu!!!
    Shisha, I love grape and apple

    Al Salaam: Good value for money

    by PierreZA Updated Jun 7, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant on King Faysal Street is not very well signposted. If you walk along King Faysal from the Hussein Mosque, you will find it on your left, close to the Bata Store.

    The restaurant seating is on the first floor. They serve typical Arabic food at reasonable prices. It seems to be very popular with locals.

    The menu is available in English and Arabic.
