“Great venue, great vibe, helpful staff”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

A really pleasant venue with very helpful staff and high-quality Jordanian and Lebanese cuisine. Quite difficult to get a table for two, as mostly the restaurant seems to cater at weekends for large groups. But if you get your Concierge at your hotel to book for you there will be no problem. Tremendously pretty setting - if a little difficult to find (it is directly behind the Iraqi embassy near to the Main Street leading to Rainbow St). Would recommend for couples or for groups but not for children!

“Mouthwatering Dishes Accompanied by an Overreacting Waiter”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Mouthwatering Authentic food, that's what makes this place a very good choice.However, every table must be served by a specific waiter overreacting in everything he does, hovering above your head all the time just to make sure that everything is OK and that he will get a good tip at the end! You would be seated on a big table with plenty of dishes to share, so here comes the waiter and the servers real role to pour your favorite cooks in your plate. Whether you order to be dining in a non-smoking area or a smoking one, the smell of cigarettes will be all over the place. Besides, don't be surprised with a long triple-digit check, it's considered a 5-star Rest.

“Excellent! Food, Service, Atmosphere simply Excellent!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Beautiful place; attentive, courteous service, delicious food at reasonable prices.
This was one of the most pleasant dining experiences I have had, anywhere in the world!
The service was exceptional without being overbearing. There was a wonderful array of guests of many nationalities, languages and variety of attire and all were served with the same respect and care. You felt welcome. The servings were generous, the food fresh, nicely presented and delicious! If you are in Amman, you must visit!

“5 Star restaurant spoilt by smoking”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

This Lebanese inspired food restaurant would rate as the best dining experience we encountered in our 10 days in Jordan.
On walking into the foyer you get the feel this will be a fine dining experience from the well trained, professional attitude of the staff, the ambience of both the indoor and outdoor courtyard and comprehensive menu that offers a change in the food styles we had become accustomed to in Jordan.
The staff were friendly, attentive and efficient in looking after the customers on this busy Thursday evening. The outdoor courtyard is an oasis of greenery in an otherwise parched Jordan.
There were nice touches from the complimentary fresh sliced tomatoes in olive oil with zaatar, to the fresh fruit served at the conclusion of our meal when we were too full to try the desserts.

The only thing that caused us to reduce the rating was the huge amount of smoking going around us from sheesha pipes and cigars. It drove us to leave early as it became overwhelming, even in the outdoor setting
