The Rainbow street is on the Amman mountain, it's high so it's a bit cold there, make sure to bring a Jacket. There are alot of good restaurants, it's not expensive relatively. I went with relatives to a restaurant there names Views, really enjoyed the food. The view of the restaurant is incredible, you can see all Jordan and the... More

Before I got to Amman, my research suggested that I must spend every evening at Rainbow Street for it's restaurants, bars, people watching etc. But frankly, I was rather disappointed. There are lots of choices for food and drink but it just did not have the personality I was expecting it to. Perhaps it was the frigid weather or just... More

We found the Rainbow Street on our first night. It was dead, maybe we picked the wrong night, it was midweek. However, I'm at a loss to see what is special about this street. Too much hype if you ask me. Don't go out of your way to find this street, it is not worth it!

A nice old street lined with cafes, restaurants, and galleries with a beautiful ambiance. Excellent for an evening out any time of the year. It opens late and has a large variety.

Visited this street on Feb. The weather was cool. There are many cafe shops in the place, so if you are a coffee type of person, you will really enjoy it. I dont go to clubs or bars so i cant comment about them. Found many of the Fast Food brands but few local dinners. Shopping-wise, this area is relatively... More

Well, although this is the most hip street with some cute restaurants, bars and shops, it will disappoint most tourists as it is not really big or have that many places . Well, but if you compare to any other areas in Amman, yes, it is probably the best area for eating, stroll around and do a bit of shopping.... More

I like Rainbow Street and recommend a stroll down, to see and smell the sights and partake in the coffee shop delights, the local handicrafts and restaurants. It was warm and welcoming and delightful to walk amongst local shop keepers and their wares. The local coffee shops offer delicious Arabic coffee and sweets as well as local foods. We bought...
