Best steakhouse in Amman. Reasonable Prices, great service and excellent staff. Love their nachos(a must have) and delicious beer. Kind of pricy, but you're getting amazing quality food and authentic dishes.

My husband took me there for our 2nd anniversary. Service was very fast, we ordered steak and a chicken & mushroom dish...and they both were great. Staff were friendly and attentive. Its not a cheap restaurant though, so expect to pay min JOD 20 per person.

There are many places in Abdoun circle that are not worth going to. This place is one you should visit. There's a few seats outside where there's a great view of what's going on in the circle. The valet parking attendant is super friendly and quick to fetch your car as you're ready to leave. The fish, burgers and steaks... More
