I had a lovely green tea with mint, and my colleagues had good strong Italian style coffees in this Riyadh café. There are a few franchises around town, offering a classier alternative to Starbucks. The condiments for sale (pickles/relish etc), are delicious and make nice gifts, particularly if your loved ones don't eat dates! It is suitable for casual work... More

This café is one of Riyadh (must try places) due to its Excellency in everything they offer from the decor, service, hospitality & last but not least their menu variety. The café also has a bakery, so, what ever you eat there be sure that they've made it & is 100% fresh. What I came to admire about them -... More

I went there many times. For Bateel (from my experience of trying breakfast in different countries with different cuisines) there is nothing special about Bateel's food. The food portion is really small comparing to the prices. I tried their latte and cappuccino, not good at all, just like milk with coffee flavour!! I don't think I will go there again!

The service is very good and the Eggs Royale a MUST! The decor is airy and open. You must sample the great variety of dates on the ground floor.

To my mind one of the consistently good places to eat in Riyadh - quality food, generous portions, well prepared and an excellent choice for all palates. The mushroom soup is great. Minimal decoration with good service makes for a functional and practical place for either a business lunch or "with wife" meal. Not for large families and noisy children.... More
