“Good Food but Poor Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

This is a rather upscale restaurant in Amman. The food is good, but it is a little overpriced. The service is quite poor. I ordered a steak for dinner; I was halfway finished with it before they brought me a steak knife. It was quite a long time between getting our drinks and getting our food. Some of our group got their main meal when others got appetitzers. The bar is amazing.

“Nice hidden little gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Near third circle, this is hidden in a side street above Romero's restaurant. Nice and comfortable decor inside. Great place to just sit and have a drink. Good menu - the burger was very good. The menu has an excellent range of sushi which is very good quality. The bar is nice and has an excellent drinks selection. Overall, definitely somewhere to go. I'll be returning in the future.

“A very unique experience, a must do in Amman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

The views are everything in this place, of a night time this is the one of the best spots to catch up with friends although it is ideal for couples/romance.

The service and food/drinks are good but predominantly the views make it a must see.

You must must make reservation for these places, all amman destinations and eateries. Even if weekday or early/late.

“Upscale, hip, and very, very sexy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

This is where you go when you want to impress co-workers, visitors, or that special someone.
Make sure your reservations are in place, and if you so chose, have dinner at Romero's first (downstairs).
Not that you need to; the food was not bad at all - if a bit undersized for my taste.
The staff were attentive, and informative. It's nice to see that they actually know a decent amount about their menu.

The scenic view is probably one of the best in Amman, even though it's not very elevated. Amman is quite gorgeous at any height though. The atmosphere reminded me a lot of the Rooftop lounge in the Hyatt Park in Toronto. I know, I know, they're completely different, but the whole rooftop concept done right is a common denominator between the two.

I was in Amman for a week, and I went to this place 3 times. It's not cheap by any means, but at least you are spending good money for good service.

The sushi was pretty good, and the chicken shawarma was delicious too. Love this place.
