I absolutely loved the fried fish (small) and the barbecued filleted fish that we ere served. The side dishes were awesome , everything was just perfect. Atmosphere was family oriented and the drinks were delicious.

We went to the Ocean Restaurant, the A/C was set to minimum while the stated temperature outside was 40 degrees Celsius. They gave us (9 adults) only two menus that we had to rotate among us. After ordering, it took them so much time to bring our food that I thought they actually went out fishing in the sea!

No alcohol available and like a lot of Jordanian restaurants smoking is allowed. Other than that, clean and crisply presented - maybe the lighting a little bright. Large portions of tasty local recipes. Very friendly.

The mezze at Ocean were all pretty good, and we were happy to be able to pick out our own fish for the meal, but the food overall was nothing special, and there was a significant delay with the kitchen. The staff were all very pleasant and friendly, which helped make up for the delay - and were very nice... More

As regular customers of Ocean in Amman, we knew what to expect in terms of food (always fresh and delicious). This time we had grilled seabream, seafood soup, and the shrimp starter in tomato sauce - all of which were extremely delicious.the problem, however, was the service and the atmosphere. We went early on a Friday, and it seemed like... More

The owners of Ocean used to supply seafood to the local restaurants, until they decided to venture out on their own. The fare is the freshest in town and comes right from the source. We ordered the grilled sea bream, and a seafood platter with fish, calamari and prawns. The platter was regular batter fried heavy stuff which didn't do... More
