This is an old style cafe just above an Arab bath for men. As you quickly walk up the steps near the bath, you have the map of the Arab world looking down at you. Pots, old vessels, coffee tumblers and various other knick-knacks make the entrance of Jafra. The walls are covered with drawings, photos from the past. So,... More

This is a fine restaurant in Amman downtown. There are pictures and english descriptions in the menu book. Service is friendly. They notice what you want.

If you like hookah, this is a great place. Live music each time we went and really quick service. The food was also delicious - from the simple pizzas to the more complex clay pots.

This place is beyond a restaurant/cafe, it is a mini-museum. If you like shisha along with authentic Arabic food then this is ur place. I love their manaqeesh and sajiyyeh a lot. If u need to have a different experience, then order one of their clay pots dishes (food cooked in dough-sealed pot).

The place is very traditional and great to enjoy a drink, narguile and listen to life music. I love its arabic atmosphere, and especially the terrace, which allows you to see the neighboring streets of Al Balad.

This place might be more appreciated by a Westerner who wants to experience the culture and try the local cuisine, for someone who has been to many Arabic restaurants this one is not impressive nor special. The waiters are friendly. The place is just off the main road so very loud, music is loud, the food is not great and... More
