Dunia Rooftop is located near 1st Circle in Amman. It is on the roof of a wonderful old building in the city center. You have wide open views to 2 sides, nearly providing a 270-degree view. In Summer the glass windows are removed and the roof is only covered with white sheets. You are truly sitting outdoors in a great atmosphere dominated by colorful lanterns hanging from above. Also Dunia Rooftop is not too large, so at all times providing a cozy space. Make sure to call ahead though, as it might get busy, especially on weekends and during events.
Food and Drinks
This time we decided for cocktails and they have some really good drinks. We had the Amaretto Sour and the Whiskey Sour and also some Summer Cocktails, which were all nice. We also tried several items from the food menu and were not disappointed at all. The Dunia salad, comprised of tomatoes, greens and cream cheese was great. We also enjoyed the smoked salmon salad. As warm starters we had the stuffed mushrooms and the shrimp basket, both really yummy and well sized in amount.
The best were the main dishes though. We had the Stroganoff beef and the rib eye steak. Both main dishes were beyond expectations and very satisfying in terms of amount. If you are heading to Dunia for dinner, make sure to not fill up too much on starters or share a main dish when you have many entrees. The beef Stroganoff was really unique and yummy. My wife enjoyed the rib eye steak which was cooked to perfection. The Shrimp basket was a great appetizer worth to point out.
Summary of Dunia Rooftop
Dunia Rooftop has a wonderful location with great view. They serve great drinks and also provide really good food. It is surely a pretty fancy place but still has a cozy vibe to it. They regularly hold events, have DJs, Ladies nights and also currently have a happy hour starting from 2 pm every day. Make sure to watch out for their musical events, and also note that currently they do not only apply the reduced tax but also cut down the service charge to 0%. I would like to thank Dunia Management for having us.
