We came here as a big group. The choice and quality was fantastic. The meat is very tasty - try the mixed grill or the clay pots. Refreshing juices too.

I like having breakfast at jafra, they have a lovely breakfast buffet every friday. Their hooka is great too. I like sitting at the terrace with Amman city center view.
