We went to this place one day before we left Amman, we wish we had known this place before. The atmosepher was very lovely, the staff was friendly & the food was one of the most delicious food I had in Amman. I highly recommend this place to everyone. By the way the price was a little high, but comparing... More

A really pleasant venue with very helpful staff and high-quality Jordanian and Lebanese cuisine. Quite difficult to get a table for two, as mostly the restaurant seems to cater at weekends for large groups. But if you get your Concierge at your hotel to book for you there will be no problem. Tremendously pretty setting - if a little difficult... More

Mouthwatering Authentic food, that's what makes this place a very good choice.However, every table must be served by a specific waiter overreacting in everything he does, hovering above your head all the time just to make sure that everything is OK and that he will get a good tip at the end! You would be seated on a big table... More

This Lebanese inspired food restaurant would rate as the best dining experience we encountered in our 10 days in Jordan. On walking into the foyer you get the feel this will be a fine dining experience from the well trained, professional attitude of the staff, the ambience of both the indoor and outdoor courtyard and comprehensive menu that offers a...

Our restaurant reservation was arranged for us by Ola at Jordan Select Tours and we used a car from the Intercontinental hotel to travel the short distance involved. We were seated in a non-smoking environment and looked after by management and waiters who were of great assistance in choosing our meal. Absolutely no problem in ordering a reasonably priced bottle... More

Lovely, buzzy restaurant, with outdoor courtyard and torcheres, seating about 100 people. Staff are busy, but know what they are doing:discretely topping up wines and water. For me the pork shwarma strips, with cardamon,on a base of yoghurt and hummus was excellent, very moreish. My only complaint is that we ate too much. Lovely atmosphere, (trendy, cosmopolitan 35-50 yr olds,... More

Once you enter fakhr-aldheen you feel the 5 star restaurant vibe. The food is definitely rated as 5 star, make sure to get the "keshkash kabab" its a dish that comes with dried tomato and garlic. Mouthwatering ! Highly recommended place
