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

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.

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.

Thank Sarah A
