Great Arabic food, but pricey!

This restaurant is located in an off street between 1st and 2nd circle, a popular bit of town. The food is extremely good, and so are the desserts (Especially Halawet Al Jibn). Drawbacks is that there is no non-smoking areas so expect people smoking cigarettes and Shisha around you. Additionally... read more

I have been to Fakhr El-Din many times over the years. It is a good Arab restaurant for a night out with friends / visitors. It used to be quite reasonably priced for such a good venue but is now far too expensive in my opinion.

This is a restaurant inside a pretty villa that serves excellent local food. All ingredients were very fresh and of high quality. We got a selection if vegetable starters followed by some meat on grill. In particularly liked the hummus beiruti, artichoke and broadbean starters.

Enjoy the best food and the 5 stars service in Fakhr El-Din. One of the best restaurants I enjoyed in Amman. The staff are very nice and helpful. Very clean restaurant. Valet parking available. They offer free deserts and fruits after your meal. Expensive but you'll be happy paying whatever the bill amount is. Highly recommend.

This legendary restaurant in Amman never disappoints. Exquisite food and flavours to savour ! Try the the hummus Beiruti and mix grill with mushrooms. Attentive service but never too pushy.....

Went for dinner - the restaurant is large and has a beautiful courtyard which is the place to get a table if you can. There is indoor seating too which is good but the courtyard is really nice. Had some amazing Jordanian cuisine, and loved the experience. This is positioned as one of the best restaurants in town so make... More

Again - one if the best restaurants in Amman. Upscale - and very very nice. The service is great - the food even better. They have a lovely garden - open during summer. Reservations needed. I'm a returning customer.

The place resemble to an old Lebanese village house with many indoor partitions. The food is great and the service is really attentive. Chef Elias is a great one with a lot of experience. I use to hi there because of him. By the way, the maitre D that welcomes you is very kind. Thank you and keep it up.
