Highly recommend the claypot lamb dinner - enough for 2 people to share. Also, ask the locals about the history of Jafra cafe. Pictures on wall are a small clue. Good prices for the quality of food.

Jaffra is a good café to have a nice turkish coffee and smoke shisha. We've also ate here a couple of times and we do recommend the claypot and iron plante dishes.

Great place to after a day running around Amman or the Citadel. Amazing food selections and great selection of teas and juices. After you finish feasting on all the great food, finish it off with some great hookah - tons of good flavors to choose from. Come hungry, order a ton and share with your friends

We went to Jafra several times for dinner and to meet with colleagues. It is a great hang out. The food was quite good, mostly middle eastern, but mixed with some western food. The price was reasonable. Service was fine. During the summer periods, one can sit outside on the balcony. It was quite enjoyable for all of us.

We encountered Jafra on our recent trip to Amman; it was recommended by our driver/tour company. We were quite hungry since we had just flown in and hadn't eaten lunch. The place was packed (several large groups were there) but this is a pretty large restaurant, so they still had a table for us. There is both indoor and outdoor... More

This place is often recommended to travelers but no one local actually goes there. I'd avoid it and go across the street to the hookah bar with the balcony.

I feel like if I lived in Jordan, I would be here all the time. The food is reasonably priced and delicious. It is mostly Middle Eastern fare, but there is a good mix of some pretty standard Western dishes as well, for those picky eaters (or children) in your party--they had pizza if that's what you feel you need....
