Let's start with the view. It's breath taking. Amman is a beautiful city with amazing scenic views. The living provides you with such a view. Furthermore the food was great. Try the Steak in the pepper sauce.

Great food. Staff kinda on the slow side and not what I am used to in restaurants of this quality around Amman. I overlooked it on the basis that it could be a bad night. Better to reserve your table in advance especially on the weekends. Have the hotel make the call for you. Anyhow, had the ribeye and it... More

So we have previously been to the Living Room in winter and enjoyed a couple of glasses of sparkling before heading downstairs to dinner at Romero. Now it's warm we thought we would try the terrace. Well what a mistake that was! Firstly we stood there being ignored (it was about 1/4 full if that) then they offered us a... More

I went there for the first time for lunch and sat on the balcony! It was so nice. The space is lovely, has a homey feel to it. The food was good- I ordered a few sushi rolls and edemame. The only issue was the slow service..even though the place was nearly empty at that time. The staff are friendly... More

From Gyoza to chicken skewer, and sandwiches with Cajun coated fries, the sushi restaurant definitely try its best to cater to all needs! No sashimi offered if this is what you're looking for, but the waiter is friendly and the ambiance was quite nice,though better to come in big group due to their seating arrangement. Terrace still closed though no... More

Good place for foreigners, but I with my bf called and ask for tables - it wasn't, then we called again and it's free table! When we came it wasn't actually a table - sits at the sushi bar, then we offered food, sushi served fast, but wings - very long time, and when it was finally served, the waiter... More

I called Living Room for a reservation on a Thursday night, and was not surprised to get the usual Amman runaround of "we are all booked, only seats at the bar" just to show up and find tons of open tables (where we easily relocated). Once we got in and were seated, however, everything was wonderful. There is a full... More

This is a neat little place with nice living room type furnishings and small patio. Food is decent, drinks are good. Saturday nights are all you can eat sushi for 25 JOD. Its an upscale local Jordanian crowd mostly. People are dressed up. Somewhat pricey but not overly so. Everyone is smoking so be prepared - its a smallish place... More
