While in Amman Jordan it is difficult to find a really great restaurant. The La Maison Verde Restaurant is a must if you want a great meal!! It is located in the Shemaisani District of Amman on a very "quite-street".
We celebrated my wife's birthday and the food and atmosphere was fantastic! The only negative was the service. It was very, very slow which came as a big surprise as in the past it was very swift and all service was carried out in an expeditious manner.
The positives far out-numbered this one negative point of slow service.
The wine list is extensive but a bit over priced. The appetizers...where can I start? I had the Shrimp and Avocado Cocktail and this was very, very good. I tasted the Sea Scallops appetizer, even though the scallops were frozen the taste was out-of-the-world!! The Calamari appetizer was very good and served in a paper bag!!
For my main dish I had the Shrimp Tempera... the shrimp were "fresh" and the only unfortunate comment the batter was not really a Tempera batter, but more of a deep fried shrimp batter!! Way too thick and "heavy".
The guest that had the Angus Beef were all thrilled and were commenting on the taste well after we left the restaurant!!
I had a few glasses of the nice French Chardonnay and there was also a nice Bordeaux St Emilion Grand Cru for the meat eaters!
They had very, very nice live music. Music that you can still carry on the conversation while enjoying the music...
Outside of the slow service this is still one of the best restaurants in Amman!!
