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....

typical oriental Jordanian restaurant and coffee shop, it has a traditional architecture reflecting the old buildings of Amman, also it has a great musical ambiance with classical Arab songs. Not recommended for non smokers

Nice restaurant, not far from Rainbow Street. The entrance is a bit confusing since the stair lead to the restaurant hide behind the shop. The food is delicious. I came there on Friday night, and really enjoy my time there. You can also enjoy sisha while listening live Arabian music and songs.

This place is really interesting - has very traditional Jordanian food in a shisha smoking environment with live band often playing at night. Highly recommend for a visit one evening if you wnat to head Downtown.
