If you’re looking for a change from Middle Eastern fare but still want to mix with a Jordanian clientele, this primarily Spanish restaurant, off Al-Kulliyah al-Islamiyah St, is a great favourite with locals. The authentic paella Valenciana and gazpacho soup are recommended. The restaurant is located in a typical Jebel Amman townhouse (opposite the InterCon), lending a cosy charm to the venue. Don’t eat too many tapas if you want to do justice to the paella!
