Intrigued to learn that Cantaloupe has moved location from Rainbow Street to the Boulevard. Once we got to the Boulevard the 'hostess' explained to us that the venue on Rainbow will now only be open in summer. I must admit it's a bit of a shame as the view from the original venue is beautiful and it has a certain... More

Food quality was above average for international cuisine in Amman. In winter, the rooftop venue is closed, and the views from the main dining room are blocked by the bar. Expect to have your clothes smelling of smoke for a day or two afterwards.

This spot has probably one of the best chefs in town. The food never disappoints and the view of old Amman is simply stunning. A modern setting in a charming spot giving you a glimpse of history. Recommended

Hello Mr. Turk, always glad to hear we are up to our customers' standards in quality in prompt service. Like any other business, we are big fans of our regulars :) However, we at Cantaloupe follow a first call - first book policy when it comes to table reservations. Could you please be more specific on your "good table" part? More

The first problem was that we had reservations and they seated 5 of us at a 4 top when the restaurant was empty, then they rudely refused to sit us at a proper sized table upon asking. Next issue was that I ordered a bottle of wine. They kept the bottle out of site of my table and were never... More
