In a city where you need to be in the know when it comes to sourcing authentic meals of good standard, Fakhr El-Din leads the pack for high-end culinary treats. There's really only one agenda item once here, and that's the abundance of mezze and traditional fare that makes this one of the best in Amman. While not the cheapest,... More

However we are English, and used to Lebanese restaurants in England where the portions are about a quarter the size of the ones in this restaurant. So we hugely over-ordered and although we specifically... More

You know you're somewhere good when you're desperately asking the staff how they prepared dishes. In our case, it was the 'garlic' that accompanied the (complimentary) tomato with Sumac that had us desperate to know the answer (see pic). All the food was at least very tasty. This was the best meal we had in Amman and one of the... More

The first thing which hit me when I entered the restaurant was that it looked straight out of an old hollywood movie where they showed grand, luxurious restaurants. The lighting, the seating and the architecture are all quite nice. The service is also great - you don't have to wait long before someone notices your raised hand or your glance... More

The setting and history in the restaurant cannot be compared with. It truly is a place for kings, queens and dignatories. The food is amazing - particularly love their sweetened fruits for desert. And cant go past the mixed grill!
