This restaurant has an enviable reputation as one of the finest in Jordan and it is well deserved. The fruits and vegetables are the freshest and ripest, the flavors are the richest and most subtle. The wide range of dishes makes it best for larger groups who can share them all. From the hummus with pomegranate seeds and the stuffed... More

This is the place to go for the best Lebanese food in Jordan. I recommend you go with a large group of people so you can try many dishes.

Interesting venue with great history and international quality service but food was underwhelming given the massive volume of recommendations Would best suit large party rather than just two Fattoush was excellent ,vine leaves just OK Garlic mayo was very strong so a bit overpowering ,mixed grill was good not great

For delicious Mediterranean food come here. You will not be disappointed. The food is delicious, the place is nice, and the service is attentive. Better to visit as a group so you can order and try many different things. Reservations recommended.

The place was crowded and pretty noisey. The only thing that I love about this place is the... More

We went here on New Year's Eve and the restaurant did not disappoint. The food was unique and exceptional (try the raw lamb) and the beautiful and historic setting was the perfect way to bring in a new year. The staff was especially attentive and helpful at each step along the way.

Thank Scott C
