I have been to the Living Room before, but this was my first time in the roof top. Quite a change! Don't get me wrong, I like the Living Room, food and service are always good, but sometimes the smoky atmosphere can be just too much. This time the roof top was a better choice. The view was a plus!... More

Ate here while staying at Le Royal hotel which was a ten minute walk away. It is a very attractive property, attentive service but the food was mediocre and very over priced. I had a local white wine with dinner and it was insipid. If you go enjoy the atmosphere and the local colour but don't expect great food -... More

I went in the summer so we were able to sit on the roof terrace (The Loft) which is opening again in May so I'm hoping to go again. The views are great and it's a nice escape from the busy main road below. The cocktails were divine and the sushi was excellent. The sashimi salad in particular was really... More

I have been to the Living Room a couple of times and always enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. They have nice sushi and good wine. It can be a bit loud at times but if you are with a group of friends you wont even notice. Will go again!

On summer, head to the roof terrace of the Living Room, aka the Loft, which is located more or less on top of the building next to Romero restaurant. The cosy furniture and the view over downtown, including the ever-changing lights of the Royal Hotel, make it an atmopsheric setting for sunset. Drinks and Tapas are very good. The place... More

The rooftop is the place to go for the view. We have eaten here many times and the food is very good. We usually eat the sushi and have a few drinks. Nice atmosphere.

This is a rather upscale restaurant in Amman. The food is good, but it is a little overpriced. The service is quite poor. I ordered a steak for dinner; I was halfway finished with it before they brought me a steak knife. It was quite a long time between getting our drinks and getting our food. Some of our group... More

Near third circle, this is hidden in a side street above Romero's restaurant. Nice and comfortable decor inside. Great place to just sit and have a drink. Good menu - the burger was very good. The menu has an excellent range of sushi which is very good quality. The bar is nice and has an excellent drinks selection. Overall, definitely... More
