The view from Wild Jordan is truly amazing! It is located in a very quiet street, so when going there it really feels like having a break from Amman's craziness.
Wild Jordan supports a good cause so I suppose it explains the relatively high prices (compared to other cafés in Amman). The service is really good (although one of my friends did not get the drink he ordered as the waiter forgot it, he apologized and offered the drink to my friend when we were about to leave). The smoothies we had were delicious and creative (I highly recommend the date smoothie).
The place is really neat and clean and so it the shop. I like the "natural" feeling of the place but I would not go there to have a true "local" experience. People there are mainly expats/tourists (which is fine of course), but not what some people might be interested in.
Too bad there is no outdoor seating to enjoy the beautiful view.

Support a good cause, enjoy some tasty food (including the tasty mint lemonade), and take in the spectacular view from the outside terrace. Wild Jordan is a welcome respite from the busy pace of Amman. Also, while you are there check out the artwork in the Gallery. A must-stop while in Jordan.

Great view and Great food. I Love the organic all natural feel and food. The mint iced lemonade could use some more flavor and the portions are a bit small for the price paid but very good and clean place with lots of expats.

Lovely cafe/restaurant with amazing views over Amman. The menu is really nice with all organic food. Date smoothie is amazing! Had a lovely salad for dinner and then went to the outside terrace about 8pm when it opened for a coffee and desert. Would recommend this place if anything just for the view!
