Nice, small place over a restaurant. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Food was really good. The location is great. Walkable to shops, restaurants, and bars. Not the place to stay if you want to be out all night, but great for couples and...families.More

A mix of Spanish and Jordanian food, this was our first dinner in Jordan. With a good atmosphere, good range of food on the menu, we ate well. The service was a little haphazard, but that apart, we were well satisfied.

Food is good (if overpriced). Good selection and gambas were tasty. A pleasant spot if you're on your own and good choice of beers. I wanted to sit in the conservatory to avoid the dreaded C-19 - pity they allow smoking there.

In the post corona era, the food is complete opposite of the pre corona era. It’s BAD. The croquettes were pure flower and contained ONE shrimp each. The paella lacked spices, the prawns were dry and damaged by freeze burn. The cook dropped accidentally his...salt bottle in it. Shame because it’s easier to go from a good reputation to a bad one then vice versa.More

Had dinner with friends on a nice summer night. We sat on the terrace and the ambiance was great. Paella was good, a large shrimps paella dish for 6 people as 58JD. Some tapas appetizers were good, such as the garlicky shrimps...Roca salad was good......desserts were not good...tiramisu was bad, apple pie average as was the creme caramel .More

Very expensive for a very low quality food , also the sangria is like a fruit salad with a very little wine (horrible ) I went there 3 times and each time I ask for the octopus the answer was not available ! We ask...to bring the tapas first and as a second course the paella but the service not understood and they bring all the food together, so at the time we finish all the tapas the paella get cold ! Expensive restaurant for no reason!More

Absolutely georgeous ambiente and delicious food. Not your every day restaurant because it is a little high priced but absolutely worth it for special occasions.

It has been 10 years since I discovered Bonita Restaurant, 5 years since my last review, and it's simply one of the best places to eat in town. I have had hundreds of extremely delicious and mouth-watering meals over the years, and it just keeps...getting better. The food is fresh, new, and tastier than ever! Plus the atmosphere is not be missed, this time of year. But what really stood out in my last visit was the new Christmas Menu! The combination of tapas, Lobster Paella, and dessert cannot be missed. Fantastic food, amazing value for money, wonderful service, and lovely atmosphere! Definitely recommended for anyone looking for a fantastic meal and Christmas spirit. I heard there's a new Oxtail dish, that I can't wait to try!More

Went couple of times and the recent one for the Christmas set meal - fantastic lobster paella. We loved it. The best part is I see a personal touch and eye for detail by the owners - doesn’t feel like a mass restaurant and hence...brings some homely charm Definitely a next time try !More

Just off a main artery of the capital, Amman, this hidden place charms with its atmosphere, both indoor and out, woos with its food and pleases with its service. Great pastas (and not only)
