I certainly couldn't fault the food at Fakhr El-Din. It was excellent, as was the service and the decor in a beautifully renovated house. It also has a non-smoking section, which is a real (and rare) pleasure in Jordan. That said, much of the food is similar to what you will find in many Levantine cuisine restaurants in Jordan, the...

Upper class for Jordan, however normal class for Europe. Prices lower than in Norway, but much higher than Amman restaurants in general. Quick service and waiters are observant of your needs. Pitas come flying... Perfect for large groups. It's recommended to order many dishes and share between the guests. Beware though that the dishes are large.

Reputed as one of if not the best Lebanese style restaurants in Amman I'd have to agree. I've eaten in many across the region and aside from those once found in the old city inside Damascus, thus ranks well up there.

We walked to Fakhr-el-din restaurant- this lies between the first and second circle and sits 2 streets behind the Iraqi embassy (cant miss this with the Green facade and armed guards). the restaurant is a beautiful bungalow with nice decor. We ordered meze - everything was excellent except that the balsamic vinegar in the Fattoush was a little excessive. Things... More

This is one restaurant that is always a safe choice for friends and business lunches or dinners. Food and service at their best, kibbeh nayeh is your national dish. It is an expensive restaurant but it never fails ur taste buds and the amazing staff adds to ur experience

A time tested icon of great Lebanese food in Amman. A very busy place so reservations is a must. Frequented both by locals and tourists the restaurant, though noisy, offers one of the best Lebanese food in town. If in a big group, just ask for traditional Lebanese spread. Every dish is worth enjoying. A real great place for real... More

I chose this restaurant on this app. It was very busy as it is very popular. We had not booked so we had to wait a few minutes for a table. We ordered mezze and other dishes together with a bottle of Chateau Musar 2007. The wine list is very limited and vintages not shown on the wine list. We... More

If you want to go to the top Lebanese restaurant in Jordan, this is THE place to go. Excellent mezze, delicious kebabs, superb service, and cozy atmosphere. The place to see and be seen in Amman. Book ahead of time as it is quite popular. The bill, however, will also be impressive!

It really depends on what you're looking for. If you don't care about prices, Fakr El-Din is the place to be in, one Thursday in every while, for an authentic Arabic meal. But make sure that your Fakr El-Din outing won't be on a winter Thursday so as not to suffocate, especially if you are a sinus and allergy patient,... More
