You'll immediately feel like all of Amman's cool people are here. Very chill with a decent bookshop, Books@Cafe has good food, good music, beautiful interior and great staff. Definitely worth checking it out if Youre passing by Rainbow street.

I visited this place because of tripadvisor and other sites that recommended it as a must go. I liked the idea of the bookstore on the ground floor and the inner rooms of the cafe on the first floor were warm and cosy, but the terrace-like part was not inviting at all. Not very clean tables, they felt used and old, no warm atmosphere at all, just a noisy cafe without anything special. I don't know how everyone got to see the view, the windows were unclean and you almost couldn;t see the next table from the shisha smoke. The food though was surprisingly good, i didn;t expect it to be that good judging by its appearance. We had pizza and salad and both were perfect and quite cheap. Overall, id say i would try it again but early in the afternoon or for lunch, with the hope that it won;t be too crowded. (But their pizza is something you should try)

Interesting bar/restaurant with a bookshop in the front. Go here for a drink in the evening or maybe a sisha. Very modern design and a place where modern youth of Amman is found.
