I'm a big fan of seafood and finding a properly cooked salmon steak with a light (read: non-fatty) sauce is always a mission. I can say that that mission has been accomplished here. The poached salmon on stringed beans with light mustard sauce is the utmost healthy dinner meal. You get full yet still feel light and healthy to continue... More

I went to this restaurant with my wife for dinner during a week day so it wasn't very full. The restaurant has a great view over a hill of Amman (from one side of the room). We had "Denise" a grilled fish wonderfully seasoned and very well prepared and sides by grilled vegetables and very trendy cooked potatoes. The staff... More

We are considered regular customers there, this place is known for its great atmosphere and delicious food. However, yesterday we have encountered a massive disappointment, and this can be referred to the... More

Cantelope is a pub / bar down on Rainbow Street, centrally located with an amazing view from the top of the building. It has great food as well, but definitely the reason to go there is because of a drink with a view in summer - in winter you can sit indoors and it is quite warm with a big... More

The beautifully furnished restaurant and bar is a great place to stop in the evening for a nightcap. Great views of the city and a friendly staff make this a great stop, and, just across the street from our hotel.

Cantaloupe has the most amazing views from old Amman ( end of rainbow St) overlooking old downtown amman and the ancient ruins of the Citadel. In summer you can enjoy the colourful lighting of the citadel while various local & international concerts are taking place. In winter it's very cosy and they seem to have found their niche clientele and... More

The main restaurant area seemed to be quite noisy and cramped, but luckily we were not too hungry and the rooftop bar upstairs had space for our group. Wonderful views and atmosphere – a great place to sit the evening with your friends.

Almost impossible to read the menu if you are sitting at a glass lit table and requests for a candle go unnoticed. The dinner was good but nothing special.
