The service is lovely and the desserts are very good. Come for anything made with dates and buy some to take home from the shop below. Enjoy a rest from the heat outside in this relaxing environment.

Fresh, flavorful, authentic food. Very well presented. Mostly Umbria inspired but also many more choices, like the Hearth of Palm salad, fresh, delicious and intriguing to the European palate. Cozy cafe` style, dining room is upstairs. Truly a gem!

I have lived in Riyadh for over 2 years and this is only the second restaurant I have been to. The reason is that standards are terribly low here and people just seem to accept poor service and poor quality and there is no complaint process in Saudi. Friends have been to eat all over and generally their experiences have... More

Cafe Bateel really stands out in Riyadh with its fresh and premium ingredients used to deliver creative meals. Their lentil and fish dish is great as well as their lemongrass ice tea. The desserts are light and delicious. We order once a week.

Yummy European food!, tried the fettuccini; it was mouthwatering, the ambience is nice, service was excellent and quantities just adequate if you go through at least 3 courses. Top quality taste and one of my favorite restaurants in Riyadh! a bit pricey but worth it!

I tried Bateel Cafe several times when I lived in Riyadh, up to mid 2013. Good light meals as well as teas, coffees and cakes. The family section was always full of ladies lunching. Good gifts - eg chocolate covered dates and nicely wrapped chocolates. Fairly good value. Friendly service. Tahliah Street the best branch.
