Lebanese House: an institution in Jerash

Lebanese House: an institution in Jerash

Less than an hour's drive from Amman, this famous Lebanese restaurant is considered the best in the country. Many celebrities have eaten here, including Nelson Mandela and Richard Gere.

Also called 'Um Khalil's', the name of the restaurant's founder, Lebanon House is known throughout the country. Its divine cuisine has been a success since it opened in 1977. The fresh bread and almonds served before the dishes are alone worth a visit. And what about the 120 hot and cold mezze: vegetarian moussaka, labneh, makdous, mouhamara. It is a festival of irresistible flavours.
The desserts are just as flawless and delicate. Here, the entire staff is Lebanese, including the waiters. Consisting of several rooms and a large outdoor patio, Lebanese House looks like a typical Beirut bistro. The best tables are on the patio, facing the mountains of Jerash. A treat!
