At this cafe you can find cool music,lively friendly atmosphere,beautiful ambiance ,good food,and drink like lemon and mint with crushed ice,best coffee in town,and shisha.In the evening best place to have fun join the staff sing and dance local songs.
No where else you can find all these things .The nearest place is in Jabel amman Rainbow street where you expect to pay more than double for same food and drink.
they serve local beer and wine really good quality.
This becomes our hang out in Amman

We had read about the hotel (Amman Pasha) but whilst looking for somewhere to have a beer we chanced upon it's café the Pizza Roma and noticed people through the window drinking beer. I should point out that a previous reviewer mistakenly reported that the beer is non-alcoholic. That isn't the case in fact they serve several beers (and wine) including Jordanian brands Philadelphia and Petra a whopping 10% strength !!! On our first visit there was some lively dancing and one of the waiters ability to bend backwards to a fully horizontal position whilst still dancing were mind boggling. We ate on a couple of occasions and the food was good. One of the main reasons to recommend the Pizza Roma is the friendly staff who help to create a great atmosphere and led to us visiting several times. The service could be a little slow at times but I think that is more of a cultural thing as we experienced the same in many places whilst in Jordan. The café is open to midnight each night

The Pizza Roma Cafe is a little bit hidden next to the Amman Pasha Hotel. But if you are in Downtown and you are close to Roman Ampihitheatre pay this place a visit, you won't be disappointed.
The Cafe which has air conditioner and free WiFi, offers very delicious traditional Jordanian food but as well pizza, pasta and sandwiches. During the day, the Cafe is a nice calm place to relax, get some food before you go out to discover more of Amman or smoke a shisha. In the evening and at night, the staff of the restaurant will show you the traditional Jordanian dance Dabka while you enjoy your delicious food, a beer, tea or shisha.
The design of the restaurant is very beautiful and unique. But the beauty of this place originates from the very welcoming and warm atmosphere created by the staff. Shadi, Ahmed and Leila will look out for your well-being, serve your food with an astonishing smile and will introduce you together with the staff of the hotel to some local culture. Raymond, the owner of the hotel and restaurant, and his beautiful wife, will welcome you kindhearted, and make sure, you have everything you need. You only have to sit down, enjoy the food of the chef Muhammad and relax.

In July I could celebrate my wedding at the restaurant. Everyone contributed to the celebration, to make it an unique and amazing event. My family and the family of my husband had an amazing time at the restaurant. The staff organised everything for us, so that we didn't have to take care of it ourselves. We danced and sang through the evening. I am still very thankful for their help and the beautiful wedding their made possible for us.

I was recommended this place from 2 different people, and had read the good reviews before, so I was really looking forward to it.....but I was brutally taken back to reality!
The place looks nice, the waiters are mostly nice (as least as long as you don't understand all of the comments in arabic, but I have heard worse) and welcoming. The prices are relatively high for Jordanian standards, but what you expect from that kind of place. But the food!!!! We asked two lentil soups and I NEVER HAD ANY THING THAT DISGUSTING sold for money at any moment in my life. It was a withe water with no traces of lentils what so ever, and had clearly been diluted several times. So ok, it will not be that tasty...but actually it had a really strong and distinct chlorine-taste in it, i think they just added the water before serving and did not cook it enough. I have never returned anything in a restaurant, this time we both did. We told it tasted like chlorine and there were no lentils in it, and the waiters laughed.
The rest of the food was ok- even if i'm eating the same food for 1/6 of the price at the university of jordan in the uni restaurant.
It might be nice to sit there when there is music and so on, but like this, it's only a small, freezingly cold room with bad food. Oh, and they did not consider taking out the soups from the bill or say sorry....

Do not eat there. Go, sit, smoke sisha, but it would be a pity to miss out on all the amazing places with good food there are in Amman to be there!
