Five of us had dinner here last night after reading about it on TA. The setting is elegant with a well lighted main dining room and menu is extensive. The menu describes the dishes in English so you know exactly what you're getting, which is great for those of us who are not familiar with the variety of Lebanese dishes.... More

Fakhr El-Din restaurant provides the best taste of the Arabic Cuisine, however, keep in mind that this food doesn't come cheap. Hence, it's highly recommended to try it, but make sure you have enough money in your wallet!

I don't know where to start with this restaurant. The staff are all friendly, the food is amazing, and I love the atmosphere. If you've never been, this is a must if you are in Amman and have the budget.

From the moment you arrive at Fakhr El Din, you know you are in for something special. The building, an old family home, is beautifully lit and has real warmth and charm.
