I loved the view at night on a summer day. Not suitable during day or when weather is cold. Best time to go is an hour before sunset to few hours after sunset. Food was typical and excellent.

Had been twice to this place. Always after sunset. I liked sitting outdoors, although it was cold. They bring you a traditional Abaya to wear if the weather wasn't warm. We tried their pizza, it was bland. We also tried their grilled chicken and kebabs. Good but small amount. It is pricey though.

This place has lost its value because of the not so good food it serves and the high prices. I recommend people to visit it as it has a breathtaking view. You can also order drinks and hubbly bubbly which are good unlike the food. Like many other cafes, during ramadan they have a singer and a band that play... More

Description
It is a great outdoor restaurant and cafe located between the capital Amman and AlSalt city. It is not the cheapest cafe yet it's worth visiting it just to be there and see the great view, which can’t be described by words. You may view the cafe on Google earth by entering the following coordinates: "Oriental Cafe" lat=32.033564345, lon=35.7939907518
