It has a nice eastern atmosphere, whether the decoration or the music but the place is so full of shisha smoke, so not very enjoyable for people who have problems with smoking.

The waiters are extremely friendly. The food is excellent. This is a great place to relax with friends to enjoy a good meal with a hookah

Waiters are very kind, always a smile on their faces. The food is excellent and quite cheap Traditionnal music, a lot of people from everywhere, the ambiance was really good. I really recommend that place if you stay in Amman

Jafra is gem. The staff here are lovely and the atmosphere on a busy night with live music in the background and a view from the balcony is almost unsurpassed in downtown Amman. Added to this, the food is mouthwateringly delicious and had us practically dreaming of Aubergine Fatteh before we finally gave in and returned after our first visit.... More

Wow I was actually quite impressed from the outside to the inside. The Service was the fastest I have ever had in any country. The Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Jordanians made no qualms about an American Couple in their presents and barely passed in noticing. This is for romantic dinners for two all the way to a family... More

I visited with my cousins and they loved the place. It is artsy and is decorated to look like an "intellectual" space - except it is probably is not. Lovely place and the cousins loved it. Their manaqeesh are heavenly, and the service is very good.

Great service and excellent food. The staff was prompt and once we ordered, we got our food very fast. I recommend ordering something off the "Clay pot" section. Their humus was also excellent. Finally, the prices were reasonable for the serving size.

I love this place, It is just in the center of the Amman city. It's like they serve you the Middle Eastern culture in one sitting. The designs and decor of the restaurant is very traditional and old fashioned.Joyous and festive.The place is old but it adds up to the amazing historic vibe of it. Friendly and attentive servers. Amazed... More

Jafra restaurant or cafe is in downtown and knows as the antique place In Amman. It has a lot of Mediterranean cuisine and its beautiful to spend a morning or evening there. The only issue they have is when the restaurant is packed, the service is poor and if you like shisha I would not recommend this place.

Thank Omeriano
