Amman is a large cosmopolitan city and as such offers an extensive range of restaurants serving all popular international cuisines, from Italian to Japanese, Chinese, Mongolian, and just about everything else. Visitors should be sure to try the local food, and there are a lot of good traditional restaurants to choose from, many of which also provide live entertainment.

Coffee shops, both traditional and modern, are popular meeting places, and seem to appear on almost every street. Also, because the Jordanian people are particularly fond of sweet things, there are many excellent patisseries. Several international fast food chains are represented in Amman.
