One of the main go-to places when I am having business dinners in Amman - great service, great Lebanese food and excellent quality of ingredients. The fresh tomatoes are awesome, the kibbeh nayyeh is to die for (and as usual you eat too much of the mezzeh before the actual main course) - bliss!

I came here with some Jordanian colleagues and I was told it was going to be one of the best restaurants in Amman and it was true. My friends demanded a lot of different dishes (mezzes) and the quantity and the quality were just fantastic. Top quality products, salads with lemon, tomatoes with wonderful smell, a real wonderful selection of... More

One of the best Lebanese food you could ever visit. The service is impeccable and the restaurant is in a beautiful building that used to house the Spanish ambassador house and was originally the residence of the first prime minister during the reign of King Hussein. The only complaint is high prices but for those who can afford it, it... More

We didn't had a reservation, so we were told that we could have a table but they refused to give us one where we could smoke shisha and told us that we should leave after one hour (we should had left then, but...

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

We had a good meal here. Excellent salads, especially the one in the 'chef's corner' menu with fried eggplant (aubergine). And they have nice Jordanian wine. 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
