Very nice and attentive staff. The food is plentiful and tasted excellent. We drank wine - wich was ok, but nothing more.The place is beautifully furnished and the air remarkably fresh even if people smoke inside (both sigarettes and shisa).More

Description
A Timeless Tale Retold Nestled on the hilltop of an old Jordanian village and enclosed within the stone walls of an ancient settlement is Kan Zamaan—Arabic for once upon a time. Kan Zamaan was once the focal point of Khirbet Abu Jaber, an isolated rural area developed by merchant brothers for farming and ranching. The impressive 19th century estate—dating back to Ottoman rule—served as an agricultural warehouse and a horse barn before succumbing to ruin. The heritage estate’s 21st century renovation into a restaurant incorporates this golden past into the modern, perfectly balancing the old and new. Today, Kan Zamaan is a distinguished venue that offers unique, authentic Oriental and local cuisine garnished with forgotten traditional flavors to delight local food lovers. Kan Zaman Restaurant consists of three distinct venues: the stable transformed into an elegant dining room, Bustan Kan Zaman (the garden), its stunning breezy patio overlooking the peaceful Al Yadoodeh greenery, and Bread & Salt, a bakery with homemade, preserved items from our pantry, offered fresh every day on its shelves. Oriental and local cuisine, authentic flavors and expertly made food, art and music and culture: all find their home within the ancient walls of Kan Zamaan. The legacy of once upon a time is now present.
