This restaurant was a highlight of Amman! A must go to. Great place to experience the music, food, and culture of Jordan.

From the moment I walked up the stairs to the restaurant I knew it was going to be a good time. The atmosphere and decor is top notch, even the tabletops are interesting to look at. Located right in downtown among the touristy shops it's such a treat. The food came fast and what a good value. Be sure to... More

The only issue is Parking, like the rest of Amman, is a nightmare.... I would highly recommend the Chicken with Herbs and Potatoes, and the... More

Step into the vintage world in Amman right in Downtown Amman! The venue is a real taste of what old restaurants looked like and the location is in a perfect intersection of old streets. The food and service are good and its perfect for those hubbly bubbly (a.k.a. sheesha) lovers out there. Enjoy!

Love sitting in the terrace overlooking old amman. Lovely fresh fish and good value for money. The waiters dont really take time to fillet the fish when serving on the table, but none the less, its lovely food.

Enjoyed our visit to Jafra. Nice atmosphere, good food & reasonable prices. Nice mix of Jordanian food & pizza. Nice view from terrace. A bit smoky.

My 15 yr old son and I ate here tonight and we both agreed that if this restaurant was in Toronto, we would eat there all the time. We had the Jafra salad (huge, fresh salad of cucumber, tomato, artichoke hearts and walnuts with a huge heaping of labneh), mixed grill, lamb spleen, babaganoush and the star if our dinner,... More

Going to Jafra ought to be on everyones to-do list if one is to stay for a couple of days in Amman. We went there a couple of times during the week and their food, coffee and shisha are something that will be in my memory for a long time. The great environment of both indoors and the blacony provides... More
