We had a dinner for 12 people in this modern and nice restaurant. Kichen is typically middle-east, good starters and grilled meat. Cackes are good as well. Service is fast, efficient and professional. Nice place that I suggest.

What I love about Fakhr ElDin is that each time you go you, you can expect a good meal. Also, one of the few places in Amman where service is top notch.

Situated inside an old traditional villa of Jabal amman, elegant to the right point and not too expensive for the fine food it's serving, this restaurant is simply the best in amman ! Perfect To celebrate a special occasion with family or friends, for important business dinners and for couples
