This was my friend and I's first stop in Downtown Amman after a flight in from Dubai. We simply typed in best shisha cafe in Amman and this popped up.

We found this restauarant by chance and were really glad we did. We were impressed by the choice and quality of the food. The service was great and we sat out on the little balcony in the fresh air. Not something we could do in November at home. We chose all the local favourites as it was our first meal... More

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

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).
