If we were not with a local (of sorts), finding this place would be a challenge. Entrance through a lobby, elevator to the top floor restaurant. They have indoor and outdoor seating, we choose outside. They have a nice wine list and and very good mix of local and continental choices. Wine, appetizers, and entrees for five was about $160...

The indoor and outdoor seating areas are classy and relaxing at the same time. The outdoor area is fun too. The heaters outside give a nice atmosphere. The scenery is really nice too. The food is really good. I love their appetizers. It's a place suitable for a date or to hangout with friends. parking is a bit difficult there... More

This is definitely one of the best places to have dinner in Amman, located on a rooftop at one end of the famous, lively, posh Rainbow street. Cantaloupe bar / restaurant offers amazing, sweeping views of the city's hill and Citadels - Roman ruins included - in a cosy, atmospheric setting. The food is really nice, with a lot of... More

Go to this trendy restaurant that serves nice western food with great views on the city. Excellent staff and cold urinoir. Not worth it if you want to remember you are in the middle east.

Had a great time at Cantaloupe, enjoying our meals and basking in the wonderful view on the rooftop terrace....until we asked for the bill. The first thing that caught my eye immediately was that I had been charged for a completely different dish than the one I had ordered. This wouldn't have been an issue but the dish I had... More

You know a place is great when a member of the Royal family turns up. Yes when I was dining at Cantaloupe 2 nights ago, the Prince of Jordan and his friends turned up. All very casual, very relaxed because that's the type of vibo that Cantaloupe exudes. Taken by my lovely Jordanian colleagues out for a spot of dinner... More

The restaurant has a nice location and has a very nice view. The menu is very nice - not too big, not too small. We had fried brie and buffalo wings as starters and both was very tasty. The portions are just perfect. As main course we had the beef fillet and the salmon. The beef fillet was tender and... More
