Very nice ambience

Came for happy hour drinks and a selection of appetisers. Drinks were well priced for amman and the food was tasty, especially the chicken satay. Veggie platter also very good. Service was very friendly, and it was lovely to watch Amman light up once the sun set. Will definitely go back!

Went for "happy" hour. Mistake. Drinks were still expensive. Food was good but they got the order wrong (no apology). Staff and manager interrupted our meal to give us the bill and demand instantaneous payment. When told they were out of order doing that the manager threw a hissy fit. All in all a pretentious and overpriced place. Good food... More

There were very small portions. The lasagna was cold and too cheesy - we asked if it can be changed and they mentioned it is not possible. The mock tail was filled with 6 cubes of ice - there was hardly 4 sips of the drink !! 4.5 JD (6 USD) is ridiculous for that price !!! Overall bill was... More

Food is well prepared and well presented and tastes very good. Large variety of alcoholic beverages, nice cocktails, and 3 bars. The service is great, view of the Citadel from the terrace is breathtaking.

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

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
