Restaurant details
Reviewed November 4, 2013

If you see it from the street, 56 Cafe literally looks like a hole in the wall. When you walk through the wall, you are greeted by a magnificent house. This was the home of Pasha Glubb, a British official who served in Jordan until he was deposed by King Hussain in 1956 (hence the name 56 Cafe). The food is great. Large portions and varied selection. Outdoor seating with heaters. The service is slow, but that is typical for this part of the world.

They are a good restaurant with good food and drinks. Friendly staff, but they are overbooked! I liked the experience and I returned. Get their 56 pizza, that's really good.

Don't go when it is too hot though, their location is a bit low altitude and there was not enough wind flowing to cool us off. We sat outside in the big yard and there is no A/C there of course.

Thank Awni H
