We asked our fans on FB & followers on Twitter what their favourite Arabic restaurant Downtown Amman is & here are the top 5 answers!
1. The Auberge
The Auberge is a traditional downtown café, here you can enjoy a truly authentic Jordanian experience. In busy hours, you will have to make your way through the tables in order to reach the balcony, which overlooks the main street and is a particularly good place to smoke a nargileh (JD2). The atmosphere is typical of the balad with old pictures on the wall and impressive ventilators on the ceiling. The food is good quality Jordanian fare but with more varieties than some of the simpler restaurants you find in the area. The Menu is relatively varied within the cannon of Jordanian cuisine. You can enjoy an excellent mashewy (grilled meat) and a wide selection of traditional mezze. The restaurant is clean but not to international standards. The staff is really welcoming; however they only have a moderate command of English. Despite not being the cheapest restaurant of downtown, it is reasonably priced as there are no pretensions to luxury and wears a certain downmarket authenticity as a result.
