Great atmosphere & excellent Shisha!

Lovely little spot above the streets of down town. I was with my Arabic speaking boyfriend which was a benefit but the staff were kind and courteous and willing to help. Shisha was excellent and the waiter dealing with the Shisha was excellent. I am a Veggie and there were some great options!

The coffee was good and strong. Quite popular with the locals. A good place for a snack. The service is pleasant but can be rather slow.

Jafra was great. The service was incredibly slow but the food was very good and the live music was a nice touch. All in all, a good place to be.

Had drinks and shisha here. The atmosphere was lively, and the shisha was good. The tea was also good, but it's fairly difficult to mess up tea. Recommend for a stop after eating dinner at Hashem's.

We stopped by Jafra in June 2015, while we were walking around downtown Amman. We sat in the Balcony, and had some coffee & shisha (both which were great!). We were heading to a cooking class -- so we did not eat.....I ordered the Strawberry smoothie -- it was very fresh and hearty (heads-up....comes out room temp.). The balcony had... More
