Cantaloupe Gastro Pub

Rainbow St., Amman, Jordan

This popular restaurant and bar has one of the best views in Amman. Sitting on the rooftop terrace as the sun dips, guests can see perfectly in almost every direction—all the better to enjoy the glowing Citadel, the bright puffs of a distant wedding party, and the call to prayer echoing through the hills. The menu here is modern and international, with a slight French accent. The steaks are excellent and the wine list comprehensive. It’s easy enough to drop in for happy hour cocktails, but call ahead to book a table for dinner.
