“Excellent quality with a good view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

OK so this was not the cheapest meal we had but it does support a worthwhile charity. Anyway, you can just call in for a drink if you prefer. The ingredients were organic and amazingly fresh, with dishes offering a slight twist to the norm. The waiter was one of the most professional we came across in Jordan, friendly, helpful and attentive without being 'in your face'! The view from the lower terrace offered a limited but interesting view over the Citadel and Amman. Unfortunately the upper terrace was not in use when we were there (possible used at busier times only because of its distance from the kitchen) because the views were less interrupted. Still, we spent some time up there after our meal. Well worth the climb or taxi ride to get there.

“This is a good restaurant with a spectacular view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I enjoyed my salad for dinner. It was a great change from the norm. I would recommend it if only for the view, and to book adventures through wild jordan.

“Good but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

I went there for lunch. The smoothie was good and reasonably priced. But the main, I had salmon steak, was very small portion despite the price is somewhat similar to what you would pay in a middle class restaurant in Europe.

My verdict is you shouldn't go and expect to fill up your stomach as another meal but rather just go for an experience. The drinks and the view are as good as everyone else mentioned before.

In terms of the direction, you would be better off starting from the opposite side of Al Husseiny Mosque then find your way to the Rainbow street. Once you find the Rainbow street then just follow your sense of direction & map. I started from Al Amir Mohammed street because it looks closer on the map, but it was a disaster!
